Costa del Sol
The Costa del Sol officially extends from Tarifa in the southwest to Cabo de Gata, east of Almeria; post-industrial Malaga lies smack in the middle. To the north-east, coastal hills dip straight into the ocean, where rocky beaches help preserve some of the shore´s natural beauty. To the southwest, however, waves seem to wash up onto more concrete than sand. That said, nothing can take away from the coast´s major attraction: eight months of spring and four months of summer. News of Costa del Sol´s fantastic weather has spread far and wide, and July and August bring swarms of pale-skinned northern Europeans; along much of the coast English is heard as commonly as Spanish. Reservations are almost essential in the summer anywhere along the coast, especially at sparse budget hotels. June is the best time to visit, when summer has already hit the beach but tourists haven´t. Private bus lines offer connections along the coast itself, trains go only as far as Malaga and Fuengirola.
Malaga is the largest Andalusian city of the coast and the birthplace of Pablo Picasso. While Malaga´s beaches are better known for bars than sand, the city has much to offer. Sidewalk cafes for beer and tapas, exuberant nighlife, and all the requisite historical monuments. The city´s charming casco antiguo is the cultural, historical, and culinary heart of the city and should not be missed. Neightboring Marbella, Estepona, Puerto Banus, Calahonda and Torremolinos attracts package tourists with their beaches and nightlife.
