Situated in the heart of Spain’s Costa del Sol is the Province of Malaga.

There is a fantastic choice of golden sandy beaches, coves and bays as well as 8 official nudist beaches in Malaga Province.

Aside from its vibrant towns and cities, there are some great places of interest to visit including the Caves of Nerja and the El Chorro Gorge. The vast Cataclysm Hall is the centre point of the Nerja Caves and its central column is the widest natural cave column in the world. It is believed that the series of potholes and lesser caves extend for miles into the mountainside. Each July there is a lovely Flamenco Music Festival held in the caves that makes use of the natural acoustics. Not far from Nerja, the Maro-Cerro Gordo Natural Park offers divers a wonderful underwater experience and the town is the scuba diving centre of the Costa del Sol.
