Areas Malaga divides the Costa del Sol into two completely different areas: The busier West Coast and the more authentic East Coast. Do you enjoy modern projects, golf courts, shopping malls and more busy cities? Then you will find the ideal spot on the West Coast. At the coast you can find Marbella, Mijas, Estepona, Torremolinos and Benalmadena which are the most popular cities. They are bigger and busier than the East coast. Are you looking for a quieter environment, traditional Andalusian white villages and beautiful nature, then you will find your dream destination at the East Coast. Nerja, Torrox, Torre del Mar, en Rincon de la Victoria are the best known coastal cities.
