The Costa del Sol is the ideal place to reside all year round or to enjoy a holiday, with endless possibilities.
It starts at the western tip of the city and extends for around five kilometres to the Rio Verde, just before reaching Puerto Banús and Nueva Andalucia. It also includes the iconic La Concha mountain, allowing you to bask in a tropical microclimate practically all year round.
Its name is due to the wealth of fantastic residences and properties located in this area, including the Hotel Puente Romano, as well as the many adjoining beachfront mansions nearby, where luxury tourism began in Marbella in the 1950s. In this area, there are also the exclusive residential developments of Sierra Blanca, Las Lomas del Marbella Club, Marbella Hill Club (owned by the Bismarck family) and Rocío de Nagüelles.
The private estates here include many of Marbella's most spectacular mansions, including the palaces of King Fahd and his brother Prince Salman bin Abdulaziz, as well as those of many other personalities.
It truly deserves its name, boasting more than 300 days of sun a year and mild temperatures, making it an idyllic place with beaches for all tastes.
Starting from the cliffs of Maro, passing through Nerja, with its Balcón de Europa and the Cueva, the charm of Torrox, the sheer size of Vélez-Málaga, the quaintness of Rincón de la Victoria, the grandeur of the capital, the fame of Torremolinos, Benalmádena, Fuengirola, Mijas, Marbella, Estepona and Manilva, and the peace and quiet of Casares.
