MumAbroad Costa del Sol

 

As the name suggests the Costa del Sol is Spain’s sunniest coast. Comprising 161 kilometres of coastline, the Costa del Sol includes the cities and towns of Málaga, Torremolinos, Benalmádena, Mijas, Marbella, San Pedro de Alcántara, Estepona, Manilva, Nerja and Sotogrande. With its reputation as a playground for the rich and famous, beautiful beaches, renowned golf courses, award-winning gastronomy and great skiing, this area is home to an increasingly large community of expats, particularly from Northern Europe.

 

The Costa de la Luz  is the Atlantic part of the Andalusian region and includes the popular destinations of Tarifa, Cadiz and Huelva. Less inhabited by expats than the Costa del Sol, this area of Andalusia is a popular tourist destination for the Spanish. Cádiz and Jerez are the two main cities on the Costa de la Luz. Cadiz is surrounded by the Sierra de Grazalema Natural Park and Jerez, birthplace of Flamenco, is the main transport hub for western Andalucía, as well as the region’s economic centre. It offers a varied annual calendar of cultural events where typical features of Andalusian culture, such as horses, flamenco and wine, are in the limelight.
