The Costa del Sol is probably one of the first things that come to mind when talking about Andalusia, as this is one of the most popular beach destinations in Europe. It was here where the first big hotels were built in Spain and the coastal area developed with tourism in mind.
The Costa del Sol offers much more than just beach, sun and sea though. Whoever feels like hiking during their vacations in Andalucia has the opportunity to explore the lonely and picturesque mountain scenery in the province of Malaga. The combination of mountains and the sea has its own special charm.
Although it is fun on holiday to sunbathe on the beach and indulge in a refreshing drink from the bar and our favorite novel, a walk in the mountains provides a welcome contrast to the beach life and adds a little variety to our vacation. Moreover, it is certainly an asset to discover the landscape of Malaga from a different angle. There are many places in Malaga you can enjoy beautiful landscapes, typical foods and much more. This is one of the reasons Malaga car hire is recommended if we want to explore the province.
And when you get back in the evening from your excursion, one can look forward to a delicious dinner, because in culinary terms a holiday in the province of Malaga is certainly a highlight. Lovers of fresh fish can enjoy to the fullest, and the wine is of course a class by itself.
Those who prefer solitary beaches and rather avoid packed public beaches in general can also rent a motorbike or a car and explore the area. Malaga has much more to offer than mass beaches, as they might not be to everyone’s liking.
And who is on holiday in Malaga and rather wants to be on their own and enjoy the tranquility of the Costa del Sol should rent a small house overlooking the sea. Also this is possible and gives the traveler a totally new and different approach to the landscape and culture of Andalusia.
