The coastline of Malaga province is popular for its beaches, miles and endless miles of them - which is why it is also known as ‘Costa del Sol’ – Coast of the Sun, in English. This is a very popular destination for tourists in the warmer months. The season starts in May and slows down around September. It is a flourishing period for the hotels, restaurants, eateries, bars and gift shops on the beach front along the coast.
At night, the sidewalks come alive with peddlers peddling their wares - usually shoes, tee-shirts, handbags, wallets, belts and toys.
