The Costa del Sol consists of 100 miles of Mediterranean coastline. Protected from the northern winds by a mountain range that partially descends to the sea, this coast is formed by a series of extensive beaches, hidden coves, villages and fishing ports. The mild climate, scarce rains and the sea breeze create a unique flora that features cypresses, palm trees and bougainvilea.
The Costa del Sol has experienced the building of residential areas, marinas, golf clubs, entertainment centers and other tourist attractions that exist in harmony with the peaceful atmosphere of the people who keep their traditions. Wine tastings in the privacy of former wine cellars or a traditional fried fish are some of the temptations that seduce all visitors, especially those seeking authentic experiences.
Marbella, an ancient fishing port perched at the foot of Sierra Blanca, has become a destination that's both sensual and popular. Marbella still preserves beautiful surprises for those who love authenticity.
