A magnet for sun-starved golfers
Costa del Sol has been a magnet for sun-starved golfers for half a century. The competition is getting tougher – other ‘Costas’ such as Costa Blanca, Brava and Dorada want their share of the Spanish golf pie. But with Europe’s best weather and more than 80 courses, is Costa del Sol still the place to go for birdies, bunkers and beaches?

If you have ever been to the tourist areas in the south of Tenerife, tranquility may not be the first word that comes to mind when describing your vacation. But there's another side of Tenerife.
The sun-drenched ”Costas” on the south coast of Spain, from Costa Blanca to Costa del Sol, are perennial golf holiday favorites. Costa Brava, the Catalan coast north of Barcelona, has received less attention. That is changing.
Beaches, gastronomy, sophistication
Costa Brava on the Catalan coast north of Barcelona is Spain’s gathering place for golfers who appreciate sophistication, class and an international atmosphere.
