The Costa del Sol is considered to be the most affluent Costa in Spain and is renowned for its year round climate boasting 320 days of sunshine per year. The climate makes it a haven for thousands of golfers during the months of October to May with over 50 quality courses located between Nerja in the east to Sottogrande in the west.

The main area responsible for the reputation of the Costa del Sol's affluent society is Marbella and in particular Puerto Banus. This is the marina with boats of the rich and famous costing in excess of ¡ê50 million where almost every other car is either a Ferrari or Lamborghini. This is a must to visit at least once during your stay with the worlds finest brands on offer in many of the exclusive boutiques and some of the finest restaurants in Spain offering every type of cuisine you could ever wish for.
