Alongside its tourist infrastructure and services, its cultural attractions, leisure venues and nature spots, the Costa del Sol offers yachting lover an unbeatable range of choices, as anyone can guess from the number of marinas on the coast: eleven. These are:
Complementing all these high-standing services, the Costa del Sol also has exclusive leisure venues. At the Torrequebrada and the Marbella casinos, guests can have a drink, gamble, or attend parties or shows. Horse lovers can visit the riding school for great dressage shows and horse competitions, or the racecourse in Mijas for exciting horse races, perhaps with the hope of having the winning horse’s name written on your betting ticket.
Ascari, the first race resort in the world, is located in a dreamlike setting -a valley surrounded by holm oaks next to the Serranía de Ronda. It’s a brand-new type of resort, ideal for motor addicts and nature fans. Its facilities include a high-speed circuit, dirt tracks, a driving school, a club house, a heliport, a bar, and a swimming pool, and a luxury hotel for VIP customers is under construction.
The Costa del Sol Racecourse is located in El Chaparral, an urban development in Mijas Costa. It can be accessed from both La Cala de Mijas and road N-340, opposite the Fuengirola Castle. It is open all year round, holding day races on Sundays in autumn, winter and spring (11:30 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.), and night races on Saturdays in the summer (10:30 p.m. – 1:30 a.m.)
The Costa del Sol Riding School is located in Estepona, near the Padrón River and one kilometre away from the beach. The riding school -surface area: 90,000 sq m-was created in 1998, with the aim of fostering the love of horse riding as a sport while organising equestrian competitions and shows. The school’s facilities are also used for cultural, social, and corporate events.
This luxury hotel -situated between Marbella and Estepona- provides peace and quiet as well as discretion, mainly due to its unbeatable location on the seashore, far from urban centres.
The Westin La Quinta Golf Resort, Marbella-Benahavís, is the most recent jewel of the Costa del Sol -a true paradise in the heart of the famous Marbella Golf Valley, where the green hills beautifully blend with the blue colour of the Mediterranean Sea.
