From Marbella to Sotogrande, a 5 star lifestyle choice
Costa del Golf
More than 70 golf courses in Malaga and the Costa del Sol make this area of Andalucia the top place in Europe for golf – which is why it is better know as the Costa del Golf. The province of Malaga not only has some of the finest golf clubs in Spain but a privileged climate that allows it to be played all year round.
Some of our favourites include Las Brisas in Nueva Andalucia, Atalaya Old and Guadalmina Sur on the New Golden Mile, Estepona Golf and Finca Cortesin in West Estepona and Real Club Valderrama, a top ranking golf facility worldwide located in Sotogrande.
The Costa del Sol has 11 marinas and more than 4,000 berths. They all provide boat rental services and all kinds of nautical activities, along with extensive leisure and catering options. Some of the most famous are Puerto Banus in Marbella and Puerto Marina Sotogrande as well as some small ports in Marbella, Estepona and Duquesa.
The Costa del Sol is a privileged destination due to its more than 300 days of sunshine a year and 185 km’s of coastline. Each beach has its own charm; some are busy, some are quieter and more solitary, some are virgin and other provide the most exclusive services. There is a wide variety of chiringuitos (beach bars) and restaurants that offer the best of Malaga gastronomy, with traditional sardine spits and fried fish – a truly authentic experience that you will never forget.
The coastline between Marbella and Sotogrande is home to a wide selection of beach clubs offering services from as little as a sun bed for the day to exclusive balinese beds with bottle service, infinity pool and fine dining restaurants for lunch. At Callow Estates, we take pride in providing all of our clients will as much lifestyle information as possible so that when they purchase their dream property they can enjoy all of the fantastic things to do in the local area. One of our favourites is Puro Beach in Laguna Villas just 5 minutes east of Estepona. Upon entry you will be welcomed with a smile and shown to your comfy lounger or balinese bed. Here you can enjoy close proximity to the private pool or access the beach for a swim in the sea. The attentive service means that you can order cocktails, food and wine to your bed, one of the most relaxing days out on the Costa del Sol!
A way to satisfy your taste buds that is both authentic and appealing is having tapas for lunch or dinner. You can try little portions of the best that the Mediterranean diet has to offer allowing you to enjoy a variety of dishes at just one sitting.
There are an abundance of restaurants in all areas of the coast, trust us, we have tried them all! Some of our favourites lie in Nueva Andalucia, along the New Golden Mile in Benahavis, in central Estepona and in Casares – nestled up in the hills just past Finca Cortesin. We look forward to recommending some restaurants for you to try during your next visit to the coast.
One of the finest things about buying a property on the Costa del Sol is that you can travel to either Malaga International Airport or Gibraltar International Airport with transfer times to Estepona taking 50 minutes and 30 minutes respectively. Taxis and busses are readily available and should you wish to rent a car there are a number of choices conveniently positioned in the arrivals hall.
