A view to a thrill


If you have a holiday home on the Costa del Sol you will perhaps be used to waking up on a morning and enjoying breakfast with a wonderful view of the sea or the stunning countryside. Jolanda van de Streek of ImmoVario takes us through some of her favourites.

There are some fantastic viewpoints (mirador in Spanish) from which you can see some of the best sights or city views on the Costa del Sol. Here's just a few of them.

Monte de San Antón viewpoint

The mirador del Monte de San Antón is found to the east of Málaga, near to the El Palo Beach (Playa El Palo). Topped by the cross of San Antón, there are various viewpoints from which you can enjoy the view as you climb to the top. Once at the top, this mirador has views of both Málaga town and the Mediterranean Sea, all from just one location!

The Alcazaba viewpoint, Málaga city centre 

Opened in October 2017, the Alcazaba viewpoint in the centre of Málaga is the perfect place to visit for those enjoying a day in the city, where shops and restaurants are as much of a pull as its cultural hotspots. Views of the modern city contrast with those of the Roman theatre, the old city walls and the cathedral. The walk to the Alcazaba viewpoint is accessible from calle Cilla and calle Nuevo Mundo. For those with extra energy, the Gibralfaro Castle boasts even more fantastic views over the port and out to sea.

Comares - the Costa del Sol balcony

The village of Comares, once a Moorish village, located 703 metres above sea level in the foothills of the Montes de Málaga is one of the areas which form Andalucia's white villages. With a castle, fortress and winding, maze-like streets, it is a pretty place for an afternoon away from the sea in Málaga. With views out to the valley below, it's the ideal location to see the white villages which lay in its path.

Touch the sky at Ronda's Puente Nuevo

They say that you can reach out and touch the sky from the viewpoint at Ronda's Puente Nuevo. First constructed in 1735, it was destroyed six years later but rebuilt into the bridge you can visit today, connecting old and new Ronda, helping the town to grow both in size and in terms of economic importance. It is a whopping 98 metres in height and built with stones from the Tajo de Ronda, a gorge and ravine which is also worth a visit.
