A car is not necessary unless you wish to tour around a bit, as everything is available within easy reach of the apartment.

The Miraflores Golf Club is a ten minute walk from the apartment. The AZTEC Centre is in the heart of Riviera del Sol which is a sporting complex with very good facilities. Olympic sized swimming pool, 7 tennis courts, badminton courts, mini golf and a gymnasium, not to mention the beauty salon, hairdressers and physiotherapist. The centre offers excellent reasonable priced food with evening entertainment for all ages.

Club del Sol, Calahonda has 12 excellent tennis courts comprising 7 clay courts and 5 plexi-cushion courts and four squash courts. Miraflores Bowls Club provides two all weather greens and due to the climate of the Costa del Sol members and guests are able to play all year round.

Cabopino is one of the Costa del Sol's best kept secret with its beautiful sandy beach, harbour and a variety of renowned restaurants within ten minute drive. Other attractions include Tivoli World, Sea Life, Snake City (Benalmadena) Aquapark, Crocodile Park (Torremolinos), Hippodrome racecourse (El Chaparral, Mijas Costa).

Andalucia has something for everyone: the holiday towns of the Costas (Málaga Torremolinos, Marbella and Fuengirola) and the miles of clubs, bars, cafes, golf clubs and beaches that line a rocky coast.

For cultural visitors, the highlights are the cities of Seville, Cordoba and Granada. For wildlife enthusiasts, there are some of the highest mountains in Europe (including Europe's southernmost skiing resort) and marshlands crowded with flamingos.

Check for flights with Easyvalue, Easyjet, British Airways, Monarch, Avro, Lastminute, Cheapflights, Travelbag, Opodo, Iberia. Check out the general weather for the area below and the current weather forecast in Malaga.

In the summer, the weather is very hot, but in Riviera del Sol you benefit from the sea breeze that just takes the sting out of the mid-day sun. In May/June and September/October as it is a bit cooler but still very warm. The winter period (November to March) is the best time for playing golf and exploring Andalucia by car.

The temperatures are very pleasant and the skies are blue. You would be very unlucky to get a week of rain but the odd day or few hours has to be accepted as it is winter after all. One can even swim in the sea in winter as it still is reasonably warm from the summer months. The evenings do tend to be cool so you would be advised to bring a sweater or a jacket when you go out.
