Spain’s Costa del Sol is the ‘Coast of the Sun’ and a sunny place!
At its warmest and most sunny between May and September, this coastal region of southern Spain also experiences mild winters with pleasant temperatures and sunny days.
Swimming in the Mediterranean during the winter may be a little too cold, but the more luxurious hotels of the Costa del Sol often have heated pools indoors and outdoors.
Along this sunny coast of southern Spain are numerous attractive towns, sweeping beaches, and beautiful scenery.
In Marbella is Gran Melia Don Pepe, one of the best resorts. It’s a top-class luxury hotel with a beautiful tropical park, pool, fantastic sea views, and lovely food.
Twenty kilometres from Malaga is a popular resort. It’s ideally located between Fuengirola and Torremolinos, so if you tire of the beach life at Benalmádena, you can pop into either of these towns for excursions and shopping. The
Vincci Selección Aleysa, Hotel Boutique & Spa is a lovely hotel that is top-rated according to guest reviews.
A favourite in southern Spain, many people from Scandinavia and Great Britain live here during the wintertime.
Nerja can be visited all year round but is most crowded in July and August.
The most famous beach is Burriana Beach, with many restaurants and bars to suit all tastes nearby and in the centre.
For a good Paella, we can recommend one of the best places in town, “Chiringuito Ayo Nerja“, just a few steps from Burriana Beach.
Attractions include the “Balcony of Europe” and the white village Frigiliana, just a few kilometres from Nerja.
Right at the “Balcon Europa” is an excellent hotel.
Balcon de Europa is above the beach and has a beautiful view over the Mediterranean Sea.
