Drive along the costa del sol

A friend and I are going to Andalusia in Feb and we were thinking of driving from Torremolinos to Cadiz via Tarifa (I've read that the lanscape is breathtaking and we want the freedom to stop along the way). Another friend of ours, however, said we'd be crazy to drive anywhere in Spain as the roads are unpaved and twisty. Anyone have thoughts or advice?

The roads are great to drive on, busy near the cities & on the Costa del Sol but generally the traffic runs smoothly. Last time we drove that road was a couple of years ago & it was fine.

The motorways (autopiste) are excellent. However if you want to see the real Andalusia get off them and into the small towns.

I drove from Malaga to Ronda, Sevilla, Jerez, Tarifa all with no problems. The view from the coast near Tarifa is beautiful. Have a good trip.
