The website costadelsoloccidental.org is a platform that collects data on tourist information regarding the western Costa del Sol.

The Qualifica Plan’s area of activity covers the municipalities of: Benalmádena, Casares, Estepona, Fuengirola, Manilva, Marbella, Mijas and Torremolinos, which make up the western Costa del Sol destination. Therefore, the information contained on the website will refer to these eight municipalities in the western Costa del Sol.
The data shown on the platform comes from official sources, i.e. the websites of the town councils of the Consorcio’s area of activity, mainly relating to tourism and cultural matters. It also comes from other official sources such as the Andalusian Historical Heritage Institute (IAPH) or the Andalusian Network of Protected Areas (REMPA), and additional information is provided by the companies who want their information to be published on the platform.
