Every year many professional athletes and sports teams travel from all over Europe to Costa del Sol. The extensive range of excellent sporting facilities and the always mild, Mediterranean climate provide ideal conditions to train. In addition, more and more tourists take the opportunity to practice their favorite sport under the sun during the traditional beach holiday.
Costa del Sol deserves its nickname Costa del Golf, because it is one of the most recognized golf regions worldwide. The range offers over 50 clubs with varying degrees of difficulty.
You can surf in all regions of the Costa del Sol. In the western part the winds are strongest, due to its proximity to the Atlantic Ocean. In the eastern part the wind is blowing gently, so it will be easier for beginners here to learn surfing.
Diving fans will love Costa del Sol´s, beautiful bays and impressive rock cliffs waiting to be explored, especially preceded by the crystal clear water.
Previously, tennis courts were only existing in the exclusive hotels, nowadays you can find them anywhere on Costa del Sol. Some of the ATP tournaments games are held here in Marbella.
