“You are not buying a home…you are buying a lifestyle.”
The idyllic year-round weather along with the beautiful terrain, superb views, and world-class facilities make Costa del Sol and the province of Malaga Europe’s number one winter golfing destination.
Nicknamed “Costa del Golf”, Spain’s sunniest stretch of shoreline has over 70 golf courses for all tastes and ability levels, from lesser known, great value pay-and-plays to fairways that host international championships.
Costa del Sol’s mild winter temperatures and clear sunny days allow for plenty of outdoor enjoyment, and with so many fascinating hiking routes and such a beautiful scenery all around, adventure opportunities in the area are nearly endless.
Active travelers will be impressed with the variety of natural parks in the area, most of which are ideal for walking, climbing, and sightseeing during this time of year.
Malaga has several beaches, and there are some good windsurfing spots around. Misericordia Beach, a semi-rural beach on the edge of town, is perhaps the best, with long stretches of empty sand and water. But windsurfing on Malaga’s own beaches tends to be a pass-time reserved for city locals: it’s hard to find a place to hire boards or get lessons in Malaga itself. That’s fine, though, as some of Spain’s best windsurfing is just a short hop away.
If you love cycling, cycle touring and mountain biking, Málaga province boasts a wealth of areas to explore on two wheels. There are plenty of cycle tours, mountain bike routes that take in the coast, mountains, areas of natural beauty and the Costa del Sol’s cities and villages. If you can’t bring your bike, you can easily find companies that rent all the necessary equipment. Grab your bike and start pedaling!
Road tripping is fun, but you’ll want to take a little time to enjoy the famous beaches of Costa del Sol. Along the shore, you’ll find sandy beaches, turquoise water and incredible views of Andalusia’s rugged mountains.
4. LOCAL CULTURE
Beaches and sunshine aside, Costa del Sol abounds in artistic and cultural offerings. With its mighty cathedrals, splendid Arab palaces, and passionate flamenco music, Andalusia, the region where Costa del Sol belongs to, is, without a shadow of a doubt, the richest cultural area in Spain.
