The Costa del Sol, literally the Sun Coast, lulls you by its very name. Once there, you’re guaranteed to get sunshine: less than 40 days of bad weather a year. 600 km of coastline, a rugged landscape, small villages that spread out with their Andalusian flare... The Costa del Sol remains a kind of cultural myth due to its atmosphere and its pretty little seaside villages.
Renowned for its wine, Málaga offers many flavours, some of them spicy and colourful… such as the country's must-see children's museum, Picasso. Málaga is a city that is focused on cultural and linguistic tourism, but it is also a city that is developping economically. Its commercial port is the second largest in Spain. Situated in the centre of the Costa del Sol makes Málaga, in addition to being a good stopover, an excellent base for exploring the Andalusian region.
Marbella is both a national and tourist seaside hotspot. Once a quaint old port, it’s now a seaside resort surrounded by hundreds of high-rise, concrete buildings. The pebble beaches have been redesigned for sanitized bathing and filled with sand from other horizons. But one pearl remains: old Marbella, a beautiful neighbourhood with white houses and flowered balconies.
Cádiz is a very large city composed of two parts: a large modern city on dry land accessible by a unique road that runs along a narrow strait between the ocean and an inland bay. The inner city is the most interesting part, which juts out into the Atlantic. It is a city built on rock, surrounded by thick walls facing west towards the ‘New World’.
El Rompido is a picturesque fishing village on the Costa de la Luz, in the far west of Andalusia, between Huelva and the Portuguese border.

One comes to Estepona to enjoy the relaxed atmosphere, the charm and of course, the amateur golf courses!
