Costa del Sol takes up about 300 kilometres of the Mediterranean littoral that corresponds to the province of Malaga. The Costa del Sol needs no introduction; the combination of endless sunshine, long lazy beaches, sleepy whitewashed mountain villages, unspoilt natural beauty, a wealth of golf courses, mouth-watering cuisine and the fun loving yet relaxed nature of the Andalucian people unsurprisingly makes this area the largest expat community in Spain. This region’s popularity continues, a trend that sees no sign of stopping.
