Top 10 Andalucia and Costa Del Sol by Jeffrey KennedyGreat little pocket book to accompany you on your travels, lots of useful facts about attractions, places to stay, places to eat etc.. It includes a handy map at the back - perfect for those wanting to plan out their travel route - and two pages of useful spanish phrases. When thinking about Andalucia and the Costa del Sol, I had pinpointed the major towns I planned on visiting, namely Seville, Cordoba, Ronda, Granada, Nerja, and Malaga. These had always been on my Spain To Do list but after reading through this book once, there are many more villages I am looking forward to adding to my list that sound very intriguing. I hope by this time next year this book will be well worn from being carried around Spain in my bag!

Andalucia has over Km of coastline, most of which is sandy beach - long sweeps of soft, golden sand, or hidden rocky cove. It's not surprising, then, that "ir a la playa" is the single most popular recreational activity for tourists and residents alike. Sunbathing on beaches is popular from easter or mid May until late September - this is when the chiringuitos beach bars are open, with sunbeds set out in rows next to their parasols, along with paddle-surfing boards, and water sport facilities in certain zones.

We've traveled extensively in Europe , but we've never been to Spain before. We're in our early 30s and we love to travel. We typically prefer more scenic and nature areas to large cities, but we do love architecture, art, and some museums so we typically plan our trips to have some of both. As far as accommodations, we're truly comfortable in anything from a 5 star luxury resort to tent camping just depending on where we are. I love to trip plan and typically plan our international trips at least months in advance so with this trip only being about 3. I've started reading some travel books on the area, as well as some of the Trip Advisor forums. We've already booked our flights from Florida to Barcelona and our loose plan is to spend a couple of days there and then take a flight into either Seville or Malaga where we'll pick up a rental car.
Formerly made up only of a series of small fishing settlements, today the region is a world-renowned tourist destination. This shoreline region extends from the cliffs at Maro in the East to Punta Chullera in the west. The coast shows a diversity of landscapes: beaches, cliffs, estuaries, bays and dunes. The rivers are short and seasonal, while the agriculture is hampered by the lee effect caused by the Baetic System. The Costa del Sol is similar to southern California in scenery, climate and geography. Both areas have warm weather throughout the year and average annual sunshine hours of about 3, hours.
Take me to Costa del Sol Home. The eastern Costa del Sol is much shorter, stretching from the provincial capital as far as Nerja, where it meets the Costa Tropical of Granada province. The western Costa de Sol is the section of coast which curves round southwards towards Gibraltar, and includes all the major resorts such as Fuengirola , Torremolinos and Benalmadena , plus of course, the ritzy celeb-magnet of Marbella.
