The Costa Del Sol is the perhaps one of the most touristy and most famous regions in Southern Spain. The area is roughly the coastline between Malaga and Gibraltar on the southern tip of Spain. This part of Spain sits against the warmer waters of the Mediterranean to offer a significantly warmer climate to the Atlantic beach resorts. While the warmer year round temperatures and sandy beaches have meant too much development, hoards of tourists, and everlasting parties there are some quality resorts options that are stylish and offer sanctuary. Málaga, Torremolinos, and Nerja are popular destinations. The whole of the Andalusian coastline is often warm, sunny, and sandy like this.
Costa Blanca further north is also sunny with white sands and clear seas in the dry summers. Benidorm and Alicante are popular.
One of my favorite spots in Spain for beach resorts is the Costa Blanca. This region is located in the southeastern part of the country and is known for its beautiful beaches, crystal-clear waters, and vibrant nightlife.

The town is famous for its beaches and nightlife. In January 2007, it has been voted as the best European beach destination in on various poles over the years and is the original Spanish beach holiday destination.
