THE Andalucian coast covers 1,100 kilometers of coastline, between the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic ocean, home to some of the best beaches in Spain.

And Malaga’s Costa del Sol, with 150 kilometres of coastline between the mountains and the sea can now boast to having five of the best beaches in Andalucia.

The prestigious National Geographic magazine has recently listed the best beaches in Andalucia, five of which can be found on Malaga’s coastline, with shores lapped by the Mediterranean Sea.
