In Focus: Costa del Sol

Here on Spain Life Exclusive we have been travelling, actually and virtually, across many of the areas of Spain, and it’s now time to gather all our experiences in just one brief list. This week, we are focusing on Costa del Sol, and looking for the best beaches, where to eat, where to go out, where to relax…

 

First stop: Málaga

Its status as the capital of the Costa del Sol has made Málaga one of Spain’s foremost holiday destinations, thanks to its mild climate, its beaches and its outstanding offer of golf courses. Loaded with history, with a stunning newly redesigned port area and a nascent art district called Soho, filled with charming traditional taverns, cool cafes and chic boutiques, the birthplace of Pablo Picasso perfectly balances vibrant cosmopolitan lifestyle with the laidback Mediterranean vibe.

Some of the Best Beaches on Costa del Sol

One of the main attractions of the Costa del Sol is the great variety of its beaches. Bathed by the incredibly blue waters of the Mediterranean sea, and enjoying more than 320 days of sun, each year, the area boasts a total of 161 kilometers of coast, running from Manilva to Nerja.

Where to Eat & Drink

Among the many gastronomic delights on the coast of Málaga, the fried small fish the hallmark dish, and the offer includes anchovies, red mullet, mackerel, squid and baby squid. Also, the prawns from the bay, the clams and the boiled or grilled Dublin Bay prawns all have a special flavour. Together with specialties from the interior of the province and countless recipes for gazpacho, ranging from the ajoblanco (with garlic and almonds) to porra antequerana or gazpachuelo (with fish), also the locally-produced wines and the Pedro Ximénez sweet wine are internationally renowned. A whole universe of flavours is to be enjoyed around the area, in the towns of  Málaga, Marbella, Torremolinos or Ronda.

Travel Inland for the White Villages
