Malaga Province

The province of Malaga is located in southern Spain, in the autonomous community of Andalucia, on the shores of the Mediterranean sea. Its coastline is commonly referred to as the Costa del Sol, and also the Costa del Golf.

Extending along 161 kilometres of coastline, the environment encompasses mountainous regions, coastline and farmland. The backdrop of most of the coastline has majestic mountains, which pin the towns and cities to the waters edge. Inland there are numerous traditional white washed villages. The city of Malaga splits the east and west coastline of the province.

To the east you will find Nerja (50km from Málaga); Torrox (46km); Vélez- Málaga (35km) and Rincón de la Victoria (12km). To the west there is Torremolinos (15km from Málaga); Benalmádena (22km); Fuengirola (27km); Mijas (31km); Marbella (58km) and Estepona (85km).

The region all the way from Rincon de la Victoria to Estepona is considered the Málaga metropolitan area and has a population of over one million. The coastline is completely connected by the N340 coastal road, which itself offers some beautiful sea views, to the west there is a toll road (A7) which gives a speedy connection from Fuengirola all the way to Algeciras in the province of Cadiz.

There is an abundance of things to do in the province of Málaga from historical sightseeing to playing golf on the provinces many, and often world-class golf courses.

History
Malaga is rich with history dating back to 800bc and has over the centuries been marked by the Greeks, Romans and Arab Maurer. In recent years the province has expanded rapidly and is now a melting pot of nationalities with many foreigners residing in around the city on the famous Costa del Sol coastline.

Beaches
The beaches of Malaga and the Costa del Sol are one of its most valuable assets; you can find many different beautiful options, ranging from the busy, vibrant beaches with bars, restaurants and water sport activities, to the quiet isolated small coves, where your only company can be the soothing lap of the surf.

Transport
Malaga airport is the forth busiest in Spain and has many daily international connections to the rest of the world.

The port in Malaga is a stop off point for many cruises and has been in continuous operation at least since 600 BC.

The Province is well serviced by road and rail networks, there is a high-speed train which significantly reduces travel time to Madrid, and a local train line which serves from the centre of the city of Malaga to the coastal town of Fuengirola.

Cuisine
The local cuisine from the province of Malaga is mainly a healthy Mediterranean one, with lots of seafood and shellfish, olive oil, fruit and vegetables, all jostling for top spot on local menus.

Probably the most popular dish on a typical menu from the province of Malaga will be Pescadito Frito Malagueño or Fritura Malagueña, a platter of small, locally caught fried fish; Gazpacho, meat stews, tapas and roasted meats are also popular, but the cuisine differs from region to region, with inland dishes being stand-alone compared to the coastal dishes.

Climate
Malaga enjoys a subtropical-Mediterranean climate and an average of three hundred days of sunshine. Its location on the Mediterranean sea means the coastline benefits from cooling sea breezes during the summer months making the heat manageable.

The province also boasts Spain’s warmest summers, along with Almeria and Alicante, with an average temperature from December to February reaching above 17 ºC. During the hottest month of August the temperature ranges between 29 ºC and 35 ºC.

Cómpeta review

I've been visiting Competa since 2000 & I'm pleased to say that it has always maintained its friendly Spanish charm without the commercialism which has crept in elsewhere in Spain. We all agreed the best restaurants in Competa are still El Pilon & El Cortijo and we also like visiting Gustavo's restaurant in the square in Canillas de Albaida. The ideal place to go for total relaxation.


Costa del Sol reviews

Nerja is a nice place to visit and the promenade in Torre Del Mar is also a good place to walk.

Casares Costa review

Casares Costa is beautiful. The combination of the seashore and the mountains virtually minutes away is just a bonus. La Perla de la Bahia is a beautiful, well planned development, offering lots of privacy.


Costa del Sol reviews

There are soooooo many things to do on Costa del Sol. One minute one can walk on the beach, half an our later you can be climbing up the beautiful narrow street to the top of the Village of Casares. From Malaga to Cadiz there are great towns, wonderful restaurants, fascinating markets, splendid small harbours, wonderful people. This is just a wonderful part of Spain.
