2123 SPAIN (Andalusia) - Costa del Sol
Tourist destination of world renown, the Costa del Sol (Sun Coast) is a region in the south of Spain, comprising the coastal towns and communities along the coastline of the Province of Málaga, between lesser known the Costa de la Luz and the Costa Tropical. It includes the city of Málaga and also the towns of Torremolinos, Benalmádena, Fuengirola, Mijas, Marbella, San Pedro de Alcántara, Estepona, Manilva, Casares, Rincón de la Victoria, Vélez-Málaga, Nerja, Frigiliana and Torrox.
Historically the provincial population had lived in the fishing villages, and in the "white" villages (pueblos blancos) a short distance inland in the mountains running down to the coast. The area was developed to meet the demands of international tourism in the 1950s and has since been a popular destination for foreign tourists not only for its beaches but also for its local culture. The native cuisine, as in the rest of Andalusia, has been influenced historically by Spanish, Jewish and Arabic traditions, and emphasises seafood.
