Costa del Sol, the Sunny Coast, together with its hinterland of great heritage, Andalusia is one of the most typically Spanish parts of the Iberian Peninsula.
Those living in Malaga or Marbella can take an excursion to Granada, Sevilla, Gibraltar or even Morocco. They can see the dream castle of Alhambra, "the stone jewel", the Ronda bridge overarching a wild torrent, the "Balcon de Europa", overseeing the romantic bays. Mijas, the 2,600 year old mountain village awaits them with its cobbled, picturesque streets, white rows of houses and donkeycarts. They can see megalithic buildings, Moor monuments and baroque cathedrals, bullfights and Spanish riding-schools.
The coast of the Mediterranean Sea, from Almeria to Algeciras is a single, 300 km long sandy beach. It's no surprise that the ancient Greeks put their "Garden of the Hesperides" here.
