When tourists are boarding a plane to Malaga the priority continues being rest and relax on the Costa del Sol beaches. Marbella remains the destination of choice for a vast majority of foreigners seeking its attractive landscapes while domestic tourists opt for the east coast of the province.
Another summer, the province’s beaches are filled with tourists of all nationalities. The Costa del Sol each year becomes a favourite destination for many visitors, who flock to Malaga attracted by its traditional sun and beach offer, but also by a cultural program which every year is gaining more adherents and which keep places like Marbella, Malaga, Benalmadena or Torremolinos among the major tourist destinations in the country.

Most tourists highlight among the positive factors of the Costa del Sol the good weather, the quality and diversity of the beaches, the peaceful streets, the friendly people and of course the wide range of cultural and leisure activities.
