The Costa del Sol (Sunshine Coast) is a major tourist destination in Spain, offering everything a sun-seeking holiday maker could desire, thanks to its more than 300 sunny days a year. Once a collection of small villages reliant on fishing, the whole length of the coastline has been transformed over many years to become the ultimate European holiday paradise.
With historic attractions, superb beaches, excellent shopping, varied nightlife and a whole host of other inducements, not least the more than 50 quality golf courses in the region, the Costa del Sol still continues to attract more and more visitors every year.
