The name Costa Del Sol was first used in the 1930's to lure rich holiday makers away from the Cote d' Azur in the French Riviera. With one of the warmest climates in Europe makes the Costa Del Sol a perfect resort all year round. From the 30' to the 60' all the Hollywood stars visited in the Costa Del Sol. Brigitte Bardot, Ava Gardner, Audrey Hepburn and Cary Grant to name a few. Today the stars still visit the Costa Del Sol and we cannot forget their home grown son Antonio Banderas who was born in Malaga.
The Costa Del Sol rapidly expanded as a holiday resort after extensive work at Malaga airport opening a second terminal in 1968 for non scheduled flights. Package holidays had reached the Costa Del Sol. After that fishing villages along the coast made way for hotels and apartments. This started a boom time in the region which eventually became its undoing. By the 90's some of the area's in the Costa Del Sol had got bad reputation's and with new holiday destinations becoming available it started to lose its charm.
Today the Costa Del Sol has detached its self from its tainted past by spending millions of euros up grading beaches, promenades road and rail links throughout the region. The Costa Del Sol has a lot to offer and can now cater for everyone's needs for that perfect holiday or permanent retreat. This web site is designed to show you my Costa Del Sol.
