This legendary climate provides an almost all year round season. Unlike many other holiday destinations that almost shut down during their off season, the Costa del Sol remains lively and vibrant throughout the whole year, so you can take your holidays when it suits you.
In terms of popularity, one of the fastest growing resorts on the Costa del Sol, Puerto de la Duquesa (Duquesa Golden Mile) is often referred to as the Costa del Sols best-kept secret.
