The Costa del Sol
Perhaps the best known part of Málaga province is its highly developed costal strip named the Costa del Sol. West from the City and the airport we drive through the developments Torremolinos, Fuengirola, Marbella and lastly Estepona. East from the city and the airport lies the Axarquía area. The coast here is more rocky and the towns of Rincon de la Victoria, Torre del Mar and Nerja are more isolated.

The coast is backed by a series mountains that have to be crossed to reach the inland fertile valleys. The main A92 motorway runs inland from Malaga to Antequera which then conects to Seville, Cordoba and Granada, the C339 winds inland from San Pedro to Ronda and on to Seville.

Natural areas worth visiting are the Serranía de Ronda and all its pretty white villages peppered accross the landscape. The Sierra de la Nieves and Montes de Malaga natural parks, not forgetting El Torcal park with its unusual rock formations that credit it with being some of the most beautiful and impressive limestone landscapes in Europe. El Chorro is Malaga's lake district. La Fuente de la Piedra is often called the pink lagoon. Malaga has some of the best villages to explore that are are only a half days car ride from the Costa del Sol. Read about the most interesting villages of Malaga to explore for yourself.
The City
The City of Málaga is the Capital city of the Province. A charming city with its leafy Alameda, too often overlooked by the millions of tourists who land at the International airport 6km to the west.
