Costa del Sol
Costa del Sol on the World Map

Costa del Sol (太陽の海岸 Taiyō no Kaigan) is a coastal resort town that also serves as the main port on the western continent in Final Fantasy VII. The town specializes in making softs. The player can purchase President Shinra's summer cottage, the Villa Cloud, here for 300,000 gil. However it serves no purpose except being a place to sleep.

Before Crisis -Final Fantasy VII-

Two Turks, including the Legendary Turk, on the beaches of Costa del Sol.

Following the rash of AVALANCHE attacks, the player's Turk is sent, along with Reno and Rude (and Cloud, but as a mere grunt), to Costa del Sol in Chapter 4 to "recruit" SOLDIER candidates by forcibly kidnapping them and locking them up on a ship bound for Midgar. He or she goes to Club Duel, a fighting club run by a man named King. The player has to fight through Club Duel's best thugs to fight King, so that he or she can take control of the Club. When the player's Turk wins, he or she orders the Club members to join SOLDIER. Back on the ship, one of the SOLDIER candidates Rude grabbed is a giant beast-man named Azul. When Azul tries to escape, the player must defeat him in battle. Rude eventually jumps in and defeats Azul with a single punch.

AVALANCHE arrives lead by Shears, here to release the SOLDIER candidates and ruin Shinra's plans. Shears beats Rude and lets the captives loose. The player has to go into Costa del Sol and retake all the prisoners. He or she also has to fight Azul again, who decides to join SOLDIER after losing to become stronger. Shears arrives again, but is beaten by a combined attack by Reno and Rude. The missions ends in success.

Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII-

Zack at Costa del Sol in Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII-

During the events of Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII-, Zack Fair after defeating the rogue SOLDIERs Genesis Rhapsodos and Angeal Hewley, spends a short time at Costa del Sol for a vacation. His stay is filled with boredom and constant surveillance by the Turks, especially Cissnei. But his vacation is cut short, when a group of Genesis Copies attack from the surf. Zack defeats them with an umbrella (this event has become popular amongst fans due to Zack's comedic use of an umbrella as a weapon). He is sent to Junon to defend the city from an invasion by Genesis's army.


Final Fantasy VII

The party arrive at Costa del Sol on Shinra's Cargo Ship.

Five years later, Cloud Strife and his party come here hidden on Rufus Shinra's Cargo Ship. Their stay is brief, but they use the opportunity to rest and relax after days of fighting. While Cloud is wandering around, he finds Professor Hojo, now fleeing from the Shinra Electric Power Company. He mentions that Sephiroth can be found past Corel so that is where the party goes next.

Trouble with the audio sample?

The music track that plays in Costa del Sol is the eponymous track, "Costa del Sol" (太陽の海岸 Taiyō no Kaigan).

Etymology

Costa del Sol, meaning "Coast of the Sun" in Spanish, is a region in the autonomous community of Andalusia, a region in the European country of Spain, situated in the Mediterranean coastline. Like the Final Fantasy VII location, it is a popular tourist destination.
