1. Climate

The Costa del Sol has Spain’s best climate. The average temperature throughout the year is 18.5 C. There are at least 300 days of sunshine, and thus the title of Costa del Sol (Coast of the Sun). The winters are the mildest in Europe and there is plenty of tourism then, when northern Europeans want to escape their snow clad countries. There is little rain in winter, and even if it rains, the skies clear afterward and the sun shines again.

Great Beaches

With 159 kilometers of coastline, one expects to find good beaches in Malaga. The beaches of Torremolinos, Fuengirola, Marbella, and Torre del Mar are world class. They are clean and have many facilities, such as bathrooms and beach showers. Blue Flag beaches are beaches that meet quality standards and the Costa del Sol has very many Blue Flag beaches.

The beaches have very good seafood restaurants that are economical or moderately priced. Fresh fish is served on a daily basis, and eating fish is one of Malaga’s enchantments.

Beautiful Buildings

In many areas of the Costa del Sol, one finds beautiful apartment buildings that mix the traditional architecture with modern Mediterranean architecture. Many have beautiful semitropical gardens surrounding them, or are beside golf courses. Many people have bought second homes here to escape harsh winters in other places. Other foreigners have decided to live here permanently because Malaga is a beautiful place to live in.
