Costa del Sol

The densely populated coast of Andalusia, stretching from Almeria to Tarifa, is Europe's all-year-round favoured holiday destination, known as the Costa del Sol. It consists of a string of fine sandy beaches, where the average water temperature is 64ºF (18ºC), and picturesque towns have abundant tourist amenities, resorts and high-rise hotels. Attractions include zoos, water parks, casinos and amusement parks, like the renowned Parque de Attractions Tivoli. The most popular resort town on the Costa del Sol is Torremolinos, which retains some elements of traditional Spain, although most main streets are now pedestrian thoroughfares filled with souvenir shops and ice-cream parlours.

Information & Facts

Climate

The sunny summer weather and mild winter climate along the coast make the Costa del Sol a great holiday destination year-round. Summer temperatures reach an average high of 86°F (30°C), and the winter temperatures don't often drop below 50°F (10°C). Inland temperatures have greater extremes, with scorching summers and cold winters, where nights can become close to freezing in Granada.

Getting Around

The airport is situated between Malaga and the large resort of Torremolinos on the national road N340, which connects all towns and resorts along the coast. Trains can be caught from the airport into Malaga City and to Fuengirola. Bus services link the coastal towns as well as the inland towns of Ronda and Granada to each other, and there is also a train between Malaga and Fuengirola and a train connecting Ronda to Malaga.
