On Costa del Sol, we are delighted to offer the neighbouring resorts of Mijas Costa, Estepona & Marbella, Fuengirola, Benalmadena and Torremolinos, in our opinion the premier resorts on Spain's southern 'sunshine coast'. All have wonderful beaches, plus a wide & varied range of amenities.
Benalmadena boasts a Sea Life Centre, golden beach, a wide array of bars and restaurants throughout the resort and a stunning marina, where visitors can choose to relax and watch the world go by in one of the many bars or cafes, have a long lazy lunch, or do a bit of holiday shopping.
Just a short drive south of Marbella is Estepona, which is more laid back, but with its own excellent beaches, marina and historical Old Town, there is a wealth of things to do and see. Both Marbella & Estepona are also handily placed for a day trip to Gibraltar.
The bustling resort of Fuengirola remains one of Costa del Sol's most popular tourist destinations. With it's golden sandy beaches, harbour area and wealth of shops, bars and restaurants, Fuengirola has everything needed to keep visitors entertained both day & night.
The resorts of Torremolinos, Benalmadena & Fuengirola are linked by a frequent & very inexpensive local bus service, allowing holidaymakers to enjoy the amenities of all three resorts.
Renowned for its wonderful beaches, cocktail bars, varied nightlife, shopping and the famous Puerto Banus Marina, Marbella is a jewel on the Costa del Sol. Both Marbella & Estepona are also handily placed for a day trip to Gibraltar.
The cosmopolitan village of La Cala on Mijas Costa, offers visitors to Costa Del Sol a more traditional Andalucian experience. The long sandy beach is lined with beach bars and a promenade stretching over 6km. The vibrant village centre offers a good selection of cafes, bars and international restaurants. A visit to the twice weekly market is a must and with a very regular bus service to Marbella and Fuengirola, both are within easy reach.
Torremolinos is one of the biggest, brightest resorts on Costa del Sol. It has two sandy beaches, lined by a promenade stretching for miles and with fresh fish restaurants and tapas bars aplenty. A 'must visit' is Calle San Miguel, a pedestrianized shopping street, regarded as the traditional and authentic heart of the resort, where locals and tourists mix. Resort nightlife is wide and varied.
