Explore The Spanish Riviera

The Spanish Riviera is a compilation of several seaside towns in Spain that face the Mediterranean, as well as Costa de la Luz, which faces the Atlantic. Costa del Sol is the famous coast in southern Spain where Malaga and Torremolinos reside.

Torremolinos was among the first resorts in Costa del Sol to begin developing for 1950s tourism. The nightlife here is nothing short of vibrant. There are several nightclubs, karaoke bars and festivals that take place along this coast. The gay and lesbian community is great in numbers here, as well.

Costa del Sol is literally known as the Coast of the Sun, taking up the southern region of Spain from the tip at the Strait of Gibraltar to Costa Tropical. To be more specific, the coast stretches from the cliffs of Maro to Punto Chullera. This coast used to be, incredibly, a very quiet stretch of small fishing settlements. It wasn't until late into the 20th century did the coast become famous internationally and transformed into the tourist-friendly phenomena it is today. The culture of towns like Marbella continues to attract history enthusiasts as well as beachgoers.

Costa de la Luz is literally the Coast of Light. Visitors love to visit this Andalusian coast for watersports like windsurfing, sailing and surfing. There are several seaside cliffs and fantastic views of the Atlantic that make property Costa de la Luz pretty pricy. El Palmar Beach is ideal for windsurfers as well as El Rompidillo, a beach near Rota which is protected by a fishing harbor. You'll want to visit the Moorish Alcazar, which is also known as the Royal Alcazar in Seville. This gigantic palace was originally a 10th century Moorish fort and then was renovated in the 14th century. The exquisite architecture has elements of Spanish, Gothic, Islamic, Baroque and Renaissance styles.

Costa Blanca literally means the White Coast, and it was long a famous region for hillside terraces built by the Moors who planted several peaches and almond orchards. The same region has transformed into several 5-star hotels, resorts and beautiful villas for rent. Denia, Javea and Elche are a few of the wonderful towns and cities that help to attract millions of visitors every year. The old-world feel is still apparent in some villages like Villajoyosa, a famous town for its delicious chocolates.

Costa Brava stretches from Blanes to the French border. This is a particularly popular destination for tourists on holiday. Other seaside towns in Costa Brava that are popular are Blanes, Lloret de Mar and Tossa de Mar. The oldest festival in Costa Brava is the Music Festival at Calonge. It features classical, flamenco, soul, folk and jazz music. There are also some of the best regional restaurants in Costa Brava.
