The Costa del Sol is one of the most attractive tourist areas in Spain that has a more varied offer than is usually assumed, since generally those who come to this coastal area tend to focus their holidays on beach days, however, as Let’s see below, if we plan a tour of the different towns from Marbella to Gibraltar we will find more attractions that distance us from the sea, although there is no reason to stop enjoying bathing on any of its beaches.

Golf courses near Nueva Andalucía

In the interior of Andalusia, golf courses are a rarity, however on this tour of the Costa del Sol we will find them every few kilometers. One of the areas where there is a greater concentration is the one located near Puerto Banús, further inland. Here you will find the Aloha Golf Club, Los Naranjos Golf Club and Real Club Golf Las Brisas. Just in case you want to leave playing golf until later on this route, we remind you that Sotogrande also has several of the best courses.

The romantic Ronda

Although we will have to go inland, the city of Ronda is one of the most visited, with good reason, as it has one of the most photographed monuments in Spain, the Puente Nuevo. In addition, its old town has a special charm. Keep in mind that if you visit this city in the coldest months of the year, the temperature contrast with the coast can be notable, so check the weather beforehand and take some warm clothing.

Tour of the white towns of Malaga

To return to the coast from Ronda again, we advise you to discover the attraction of small towns that are charming for their traditional architecture and natural environment. You can visit: Montejaque, Benaojan, Atajate, Algatocín, Gaucín and Casares. In all of them you can also enjoy the rich local cuisine.

Visit to the Duquesa Castle, near Manilva

The castle was built in the 18th century as a fortress to protect the coast from pirates and privateers who threatened the region at the time. Although it is not a medieval castle, it has obvious historical appeal and offers panoramic sea views. We recommend lunch or dinner in Puerto de la Duquesa, in the municipality of Manilva, in any of its restaurants, either to insist on local cuisine or to encourage yourself to try international cuisine. In a maritime environment you will rediscover the attractiveness of the coast.

More golf courses in Sotogrande

As we already mentioned, you could leave practicing golf for the end of the trip, or if you are a very keen golfer, you can visit both the Marbella and Sotogrande courses. In this urbanization you will find some of the most famous in Spain such as the Real Club Valderrama.

Outside the Costa del Sol and Spain, in Gibraltar

A visit to Gibraltar, due to its contrasts with the Spanish towns, is usually frequent among tourists who are in one of the surrounding towns.
