This Malaga province coastline stretches from Almeria to Tarifa in the south of Spain, with seemingly endless sandy beaches spanning more than 150 km, a warm year-round climate (approximately 300 days of sunshine per year) and resorts boasting top quality facilities and services. The Costa del Sol is arguably the most popular tourist destination in the world, particularly with British tourists. There are more than 60 golf courses, theme parks, water parks, safari parks as well as a multitude of bars, restaurants and nightclubs to keep visitors entertained. The city of Malaga is the capital of the province of Malaga and is incredibly vibrant and cosmopolitan with a mass of trendy bars and restaurants. La Duquesa is located around 45 minute’s drive from Malaga and has beautiful white sandy beaches, with a backdrop of breath-taking mountains and stunning marina. Marbella is perhaps the most popular destination for holidaymakers and has a reputation for having the best nightclubs and parties, although there is a strong archeological heritage and many museums, historical sites, art galleries, castles, public gardens and performance spaces for those that are interested. Estepona, just 20km west from Marbella and at the foot of the Sierra Bermeja mountains, has a strong Andalucian heritage and charm. Visitors can explore the quaint cobblestone streets lined with little shops, cafes and tapas bars or stop in at the Puerto Deportivo and Marina. The beaches are immaculate and many of them have been awarded blue-flag status with golden sands, crystal-clear water and good facilities including showers, children’s play areas and beachside restaurants. Gibraltar Airport is the closest and most convenient, although Malaga Airport is only one hour’s drive and is the third largest in Spain with connections to European and other Spanish countries and the A7 motorway runs parallel to the coastline making for a spectacularly scenic drive.
