The Costa del Sol!

We love living and working here in the Axarquia region of the Eastern Costa del Sol and would like to share with you our detailed local knowledge of the delightful undiscovered region of Andalucia between Malaga and Nerja.

If you thought that southern Spain’s Costa del Sol was just about the high-rise concrete jungle that is Torremolinos or the over-priced glitz of Marbella, then think again.

Places such as Nerja, Torrox, Torre Del Mar and Velez-Malaga may not be familiar to most, but then it could be said that it is this anonymity that makes the Axarquia region one of the most attractive, if unexplored, parts of Andalucia.

Less cosmopolitan, and still retaining its proud Spanish way of life, the Axarquia region offers those who choose to visit, the perfect mix of sleepy white washed Andalucian villages, unspoilt beaches & beautiful countryside. Including some spectacular walking & cycling trails to cater to the pursuits of all abilities.

For those who prefer to explore in a more leisurely and perhaps a less strenuous fashion, the region has a number of themed driving routes or ‘rutas’ to follow. Such as Ruta del Sol y del Vino (sun & wine route) & Ruta del Aceite y los Montes (olive oil & mountains route).

After a day of taking in the varied sights that the Axarquia region has to offer there are plenty of opportunities to relax at one of the area’s many beaches, and maybe take some refreshments at one of the numerous beachside ‘chringuitos’ (beach restaurant), which serve local speciality fish & meat dishes as well as that well earned cold drink.

When a more lively atmosphere is called for then you could do no better that spending a day visiting the much overlooked but ever improving city of Malaga. In recent times the historical old quarter of the city around the cathedral has been upgraded & pedestrianised. The city can now even boast of having it’s own underground Metro system which makes a visit to the city’s many museums and attractions even easier.

So that is our brief guide to why you should consider a visit to the Axarquia region of the Eastern Costa del Sol.

For more detailed information please take some time to read through our destination guides, which contain lots of useful information about the places to visit and things to do when you are planning your next visit to Southern Spain.

We highly recommend that you consider a different approach. Instead of following the convoy of tour buses out of the airport, try turning left (East) and come to the Axarquia region for a truly Spanish Costa del Sol experience.
