Why go to Costa del Sol

During the 1960s and ‘70s, the Costa del Sol (‘Sun Coast’) was the destination du jour, with bargain package deals providing cheap holidays to sun-starved foreigners. Since its heyday as a mass tourism magnet, the Costa del Sol has broadened its scope, adding string after string to its melodious Mediterranean bow. Yes, sun and sand are still the stars of the show, but culture, history and golf are playing increasingly key supporting roles.

Something for everyone

During its lightning-speed development, the Costa del Sol’s tiny coastal fishing villages were swallowed by an explosion of beachfront apartment blocks and hotel complexes, offering cheap Costa del Sol holidays and all-inclusive deals to sun-thirsty Northern Europeans.
