Andalucia – Overview

Stretching across 500 miles of Southern Spain, Andalucia is one of Europe’s most popular destinations – and not just because it’s bathed in sunshine for 320 days of the year.

70 per cent of that 500-mile coastline is made up of sandy beaches, from the Costa de Almeria and Costa Tropical in the east, the Costa del Sol in the middle, and on to the Costa de la Luz in the west (Andalusia is the only country in Europe with a Mediterranean and an Atlantic coastline). Inland, the landscape tends to be wild and mountainous, sprinkled with whitewashed villages – the famous pueblos blancos – forests of cork and oak, river valleys and natural parks.

Andalucia’s cities are every bit as magnificent as its landscapes, from Grenada and Cordoba to Seville and Ronda. Even Malaga, often overlooked in the rush to the coast, has a 10th-century castle and a Roman amphitheatre, not to mention a Picasso museum in the house where the artist was born.

Add a welcoming people with a strong cultural identity, fabulous cuisine and plenty of opportunities for world-class shopping, culture and sporting activities, and it’s easy to see why this region has such an enduring appeal.

Andalucia – Regions

Mallorca

The largest of the Baleric Islands, Mallorca has a glamorous style, with quaint rural villages and picturesque towns standing shoulder-to-shoulder with chic marinas, sandy coves and űber-luxurious resorts. It is very much a tale of two sides: the Anglicised 'Majorca' and the traditional Spanish 'Mallorca'.
