Costa del Sol
The eastern Costa is highly developed, but not nearly as much so as the south western part, which has been constantly developed and redeveloped since the 1960s and is geared wholly towards international tourism.
The Costa del Sol is on the Mediterranean sea, and the average water temperature is 18ºC (24ºC in August).
As with most of the rest of Spain, Spanish is the main language. However, as the Costa del Sol is Spain's most popular tourist attraction, you'll find people fluent in several different languages working in the main beach resorts. Languages commonly spoken in the resorts include French, German, Italian, Japanese, Norwegian and of course, English.
Nevertheless, knowledge of Spanish is still useful as beyond the beach resorts, it is rare to find any locals who speak foreign languages.
Malaga international airport services the Costa del Sol. Buses and trains run very frequently from here to every destination along the Costa. The bus from Malaga airport to the city center costs 3€ and the train costs 1.8€.
The A7 (nicknamed the "road of death" due to the high number of accidents that occur on it each year) runs the length of Spain's south coast.
