Nightlife · Landmarks · Marinas
Costa del Sol, literally translated as the "Coast of the Sun," stretches for over 150 km (93 mi) along the Mediterranean Sea. This coastline is home to numerous beach resorts, many of which are considered among Europe’s finest holiday destinations. Benefiting from a temperate climate, this region is one of the ideal places to visit for sailing, diving, or simply enjoying a dip in the sea and relaxing on the sand. Though urbanized and always packed with visitors from around the world, this coast retains numerous tiny coves and off-the-beaten-track bays where visitors eager to escape the crowds can lose themselves. Warm sands and gentle waters may be the main attraction, but the many seaside restaurants offer culinary delights, as well.
