Comparable to the paintings of its famed native son, Pablo Picasso, the Costa del Sol is also vibrant, bold and full of energy. On this sun-drenched part of southern Spain – home to an average of 300-plus days of annual sunshine – infinite possibilities await ensuring repeat visits beckon, reaffirming its status as the country’s undisputed tourist hotspot.
MALAGA AND BEYOND
The resort is less than a 30 minute drive from Malaga airport and the historical centre of Malaga itself is easily accessible by train. Whereas in wider-Andalucía, places such as Granada’s glorious Alhambra and rock-hewn World Heritage sites give a nod to Spain’s former Moorish rule.
INLAND FROM RESORT
A magical combination of blue sea and reliably sunny weather make its gorgeous beaches a magnet for so many. Yet a few miles inland the contrast with the vibrant coast is striking; picturesque old towns, white-walled villages, bullfighting rings and raucous festivals offer a unique flavor of authentic Spanish culture.
