The Costa del Sol’s beaches are not the only attraction to its visitors. For those tourists who prefer the rural tourism there is an authentic paradise to discover in the protected mountain range behind the coast and the hidden villages of the interior full of history and character like Ronda, Mijas, Ojén, Casares and Frigiliana.

Climate

The Costa del Sol’s proverbially mild climate is mainly due to its privileged geographical position between the Mediterranean sea and the Cordillera Bética or Andalusian Mountains which protect the coast as a backdrop from the north cold winds and the heat from the inner land, keeping an average temperature in winter of about 15ºC/59ºF, and in summer of 28ºC/81.7ºF, resulting in an average annual temperature of 23ºC/74ºF. The average water temperature on the Costa del Sol is 18°C/64°F (24°C/75°F) in August.

Tapas: is very popular as a mini snack and can be eaten at any time during the day.

Pescaito frito: small fried fish.

Deep-fried calamares (squid): also popular in the rest of Spain.

Sardines: grilled on open fires on the beaches.

Gazpacho: a delicious cold soup made with tomatoes, cucumber, peppers, garlic, olive oil and a hint of vinegar. Normally it is only eaten in summer.

The Malaga wines, sweet wines, are the perfect aperitif or end to a delicious meal, alone or accompaniment to desserts.
