Miles of Golden Sand Beaches
It’s the numerous European Blue Flags, in recognition of high standards of water and sand hygiene, that make the sun-drenched beaches on the Costa del Sol such an enjoyable hotspot for so many. On the popular bathing beaches you can typically hire shade and sun-beds – even take a cold shower to wash away the sand. Chiringuitos, bars on the beach or sea front, are relaxing venues to grab a chilled drink and a bite to eat.
