For worshippers of the sun, there is nowhere more wonderful than Costa del Sol. Found on Spain’s sunny south coast, Costa del Sol enjoys blissful sunshine bathing some of the Mediterranean’s most beautiful beaches, making it one of Europe’s best loved beach holiday destinations.
Costa del Sol is literally Spanish for ‘Coast of the Sun’, and more than lives up to its name. Costa del Sol enjoys balmy sunshine all year long, even in the spring and autumn months you can rely on Costa del Sol to be enjoying warm temperatures. What makes Costa del Sol’s climate really special is its lack of strong winds or rainfall that can blow across the rest of Spain. Inland Andalusia, ranges of tall mountains provide both a picturesque backdrop to Costa del Sol’s beaches, but also perfect shelter. Subsequently, the mountains have created a marvellous micro-climate of bright sunshine and calm conditions all year around.
Complementing the wonderful weather perfectly, are the many miles of golden sandy beaches that range across the Andalusian coastline. The coastline of Costa del Sol stretches for over 150 kilometres, and across that golden sweep you’ll find hundreds of simply gorgeous beaches, all lapped by calm, warm Mediterranean waters. Whether you’re looking for busy beaches with lively communities and plenty of fun, like La Cala del Moral beach in the lively town of Rimcon del la Victoria, or quieter isolated coves, like the charming El Chorrillo beach, Costa del Sol has everything you want.
Running alongside the region’s beautiful beaches, you’ll also find a welcoming community with bags of great tourist services.
Spanish culture is famously vibrant and friendly. Along most beach fronts you’ll find restaurants, clubs and cafes all serving an eclectic array of flavourful Spanish cuisine and sumptuous sangrias, perfect for sipping outside and enjoying Costa del Sol’s slow sunsets. If sampling exotic new cultures isn’t quite you’re thing though, you’ll also find plenty of tourist friendly hotels, resorts and pubs that offer simpler cuisine, and even traditional British food. This welcoming atmosphere, and accommodating tourist services, makes Costa del Sol the ideal place to bring a family.
