Tucked between the Sierra Blanca mountain range and the Mediterranean Sea is an area of Spain known as Costa del Sol. This is the heart of the Province of Málaga, which is comprised of nine regions and more than 100 cities and communities. From the Málaga International Airport, your drive to Costa del Sol is only about 20 miles.
What to do in Costa del Sol? A wide variety of possibilites await you. Those looking for culture will take in the theater, galleries, fairs and fiestas. If shopping is your “bag,” numerous travel groups offer excursions to Gibraltar; Tangier, Morocco; and other locations. Stretch your legs and get some exercise on the golf courses; Costa del Sol boasts the hightest concentration of golf courses–70, according to one source–in continental Europe.
If you’d rather lace up your shoes and run, participate in one of regular charity or long-distance runs held in Ronda and Málaga. Up for a real challenge? Go climbing, off-roading (by bike or motor vehicle), canyon trekking, horseback riding, paragliding, and more.
Where to stay in Costa del Sol
There are many fine establishments throughout Costa del Sol. One to consider is Club Calahonda. Midway between Marbella and Fuengirola along the coast, Club Calahonda offers wide range of leisure facilities for everyone including swimming pools, a fitness area, a sauna and more. Escape in the abundant onsite gardens, or relax on the rooftop terrace.
Grab a bite to eat at either a full restaurant or a snack bar on site. Ready to tee off? You have at least five golf courses within a short driving distance (no pun intended!).
