Costa del Sol is the most developed part of the Coast. The Mediterranean water is warm and safe. Many towns have recently modernised "paseo maritimos" (promenades). Most locations are backed by development. More jet skis per capita than anywhere else in Europe. No shortage of bars, restaurants and nightlife. Sand tends to be grey and coarse-grained.
