Exploring the surrounding countryside is a must for tourists to Manilva. The entire area is ringed by the Sierra Bermeja mountain range, one of the most spectacular on the Costa del Sol, with breathtaking views and some excellent mountain excursions
. Nearby villages (Andalucia white villages like Manilva) are also well worth visiting.
Golf is at the core of Manilva’s lifestyle. Andalucia is the home of over 60 Golf courses and with 30 of those located on the Costa del Sol
it has earned the affectionate name of Costa del Golf. The region boasts an excellent climate and long hours of sunshine
that attract ever increasing numbers of enthusiasts and professionals to the Golfing capital of Europe. The nature of the region allows the fresh Atlantic and the mild Mediterranean winds to moderate temperatures in the summer whilst the mountains provide shelter from the cooler northern winds in the winter. As well as offering ideal playing conditions these are a spectacular backdrop to the courses whose views extend across the Mediterranean to North Africa.
