The Costa del Sol is a popular coastal string of seaside resorts in the province of Malaga, stretching between the Costa Tropical in Granada province all the way through to the Costa de la Luz in the province of Cádiz. The coastal highway mostly hugs the beach all along the way, offering stunning Mediterranean views. While most of the popular resorts started life as small, traditional fishing villages, they have become a world-renowned destination, while retaining some of their former Andalucian charm.

Inland from the coastal highway are the beautiful and iconic "Pueblos Blancos" or White Villages, always a perfect day-trip from the beach. As spring has officially sprung its way into southern Spain, now is a great time to visit, prior to the teeming crowds and scorching heat of the summer months in July and August.

Many of these resort towns have popular attractions, some of the best of which are listed here.
