The Costa del Sol is aptly named the Costa del Golf, due to the amount of world class courses in the area. The Atalaya Golf course is less than three kilometres away from the Marriott’s Playa Andaluza and makes for an excellent day out on the golf course. If you are a more skilled golfer, then the courses of Los Naranjos and Las Brisas give you the opportunity to play a more challenging, yet extremely rewarding round of golf.
The Costa del Sol has a micro climate offering warm days and sunshine year round. Whilst the summer months reach highs of 36 degrees celcius, the cooler Autumn months of October and November, are just the right temperature to lie by the pool, without the risk of sunburn. The coldest months are considered to be January and February, where a light jacket is needed but the sunshine is still bright!
