The Costa del Sol (literally "sun coast") is a long stretch of Mediterranean coastline in the Andalucia region of southern Spain.


Other destinations


The Costa del Sol stretches for over 150 km, for 54 km east of Malaga, and as far as the provincial border of Cadiz, some 100 km south west of the city.

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).


Get In

Malaga international airport services the Costa del Sol. Buses and trains run very frequently from here to every destination along the Costa.

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.

Get Around


  • Miles and miles of beaches.
  • Tivoli World theme park.
  • The aqua parks in Mijas and Torremolinos.
