Andalusia (Andalucía, in Spanish) is one of the seventeen autonomous communities of the country (called the Autonomous Community of Andalusia). It lies south of the Iberian Peninsula. It is bordered to the south by the Mediterranean Sea (Alboran Sea) and Gibraltar, and its vegetation and climate is typically Mediterranean.

The province of Malaga is located in the southern autonomous region on the Mediterranean coast. It is bordered to the south by the Mediterranean Sea, west by the province of Cadiz, north by the provinces of Seville and Cordoba and east by the province of Granada. Much of the province's economic activity is linked to the tourism industry, including all the resorts on the Costa del Sol, frequented by millions of holidaymakers.
