Sunny Sojourns in Spain

I recently returned from my first visit to the Costa del Sol in Spain, and I'm wondering why I had not gotten there earlier. The weather was cool and crisp in early March and the sun was shining, as the name suggests. It's a beautiful area to visit at any time of the year.

My base was the incomparable Marbella Club Hotel, Golf Resort and Spa in Marbella.
This was a perfect location from which to explore the surrounding area. The old town of Marbella is just a few minutes drive down the road. It's a lovely town with winding, cobblestone streets, where you can shop, dine, and get a sense of the history which goes back to Roman times.

Heading west, you come to the town of Puerto Banus, with a marina filled with yachts and a haven for celebrities in the summer time. Further down the coast, you can visit Tarifa, which attracts kitesurfing fans from all over the world. This is the southern most point of the European continent.

Local day trips can take you to the charming white city of Ronda, notable for having the oldest bullring in Spain, or venture to Granada and visit the historic Alhambra. This imposing castle served as a fortress and a palace, and this is where Columbus got the "go ahead" from the King and Queen to sail to America.

Back at the Marbella Club, you can bask in the sun by one of its several pools, enjoy fabulous gourmet meals, have a glass of bubbly in the opulent Champagne Room, sample the Spa, or just relax in your beautifully appointed suite.
