The province of Málaga has always been intimately linked to the sea and fishing. The Costa del Sol is bathed by the Mediterranean Sea, and brushes the Strait of Gibraltar, an entry point for a number of species. This privileged location makes it the perfect destination for fishing enthusiasts.
Its coastal extension of over 160 kilometres had already been known for its fertility for thousands of years with the arrival of the Phoenicians on the Málaga coast, from whom we inherited the jábega, the traditional Malagan fishing boat.
Here during the Roman Empire they made one of the best examples of Garum, a fish sauce considered a luxury, and sent to Rome from Málaga to be enjoyed by the highest classes.
The Costa del Sol boasts a great variety of enclaves suitable for sports fishing: huge sandy areas, mixed depths and rocky places full of life for fans of beach fishing, and numerous marinas perfect for lovers of fishing from boats.
Bream, sea bass, sand steenbras, red seabream, guilthead bream, spotted seabass, common pandora, jack mackerel, mackerel and lots more species await you. Don’t delay, grab your rod and come and fish on the Costa del Sol.
