Only a short drive from Marbella, the village of Benahavis is one of the Costa del Sol's white washed villages, and truly a hidden gem. The village just happens to be one of the richest municipalities in Spain.
We're not being bias nor are we exaggerating, there are few places on the Costa del Sol that enjoy such uninterrupted views of mountains, woodlands and rivers. In the village itself you will find well-kept narrow streets and squares, flanked by traditional Andalusian whitewashed houses. On Sunday's you will find one of the most popular markets on the coast, with its car boot sale stalls that attract buyers and sellers from all over the coast, making it a great Sunday morning activity. The Guadalmina River provides great canyoning opportunities – making your way down the river through waterfalls and plunge pools ranks as one of the top adventure activities on the Costa del Sol. There’s also a lovely river walk that takes you across a spectacular bridge and along a traditional Moorish irrigation channel.
And not to forget, the many Andalusian restaurants
Puerto Banus ( Restaurants & shopping )
Marbella is synonymous with luxury and glamor. In fact, it is considered the luxury capital of the Costa del Sol and one of the most luxurious cities in Spain. The renowned Golden Mile plays a very important role in this assignment, since it has a multitude of impressive mansions that go from the city of Marbella to the famous Puerto Banús marina, a premium enclave at European level.
Marbella (more restaurants & shopping )
Marbella is kind of like a cut-price Monaco, but with the added bonus of the beaches which make the Costa del Sol so famous. The Andalusian city has a very long history (you can see a 1st century Roman Bridge at Hotel Puente Romano), but embraces modernity, with great nightclubs and facilities for boats and yachts.
There’s no reason to be bored in Marbella. You can enjoy the water activities on Bounty Beach, sample delicious tapas washed down with sangria, visit historical buildings, and party until late in sophisticated clubs. Alternatively, if that sound too much like hard work, you can just chill in the town squares and enjoy the laid-back atmosphere in the warm Spanish sun.
Unlike many of its coastal neighbours, cultural tradition remains strong in Estepona. With more than 12 miles (20 kilometres) of palm-fringed coastline and a historic old town famously decorated with bright blooms, this harbour town is undoubtedly one of the prettiest on Spain’s Costa del Sol.
Despite being a growing town, Ronda retains much of its historic charm, particularly its old town. It is famous worldwide for its dramatic escarpments and views, and for the deep El Tajo gorge that carries the rio Guadalevín through its centre. Visitors make a beeline for the 18th century Puente Nuevo 'new' bridge, which straddles the 100m chasm below, before taking in the views from the Alameda out over the Serranía de Ronda mountains.
Ronda is also famous as the birthplace of modern bullfighting, today glimpsed once a year at the spectacular Feria Goyesca. Held at the beginning of September, here fighters and some of the audience dress in the manner of Goya's sketches of life in the region. Legendary Rondeño bullfighter Pedro Romero broke away from the prevailing Jerez 'school' of horseback bullfighting in the 18th century to found a style of bullfighting in which matadores stood their ground against the bull on foot. The bullring, Plaza de Toros, is now a museum, and visitors can stroll out into the arena.
