The vibrant city of Malaga, famous resorts, glitzy Marbella and pretty white inland villages – the ‘Costa’ has so much to offer.Browse property
With an endless supply of sun, Sangria and stunning beaches, the Costa del Sol is still the ultimate destination for anyone in search of the good life.
The Costa del Sol has been Spain’s most popular destination since the late 1950s when air travel made it accessible to the masses for the first time. Many loved it so much they never left. You will already know about the gorgeous climate, the endless rounds of golf, good food and of course the beaches, but look closer and you can still find traditional elements of Andalusian life and culture.
Much of its 200 km coast line is home to resorts like Torremolinos and Fuengirola. What were once ‘pueblo blancos’ have now developed into busy tourist meccas with a permanent population of around 1.5 million. Local authorities have invested heavily in the streets and promenades and there are an amazing 23 blue flag beaches.
To the west is the ‘golden triangle’ of Marbella, Estepona and Benahavís. The area has an glamorous, upmarket reputation and there is much to recommend the area for those looking for some low key sophistication.
These resorts are just a small part of this diverse region. Inland you’ll find countless traditional whitewashed villages set among the olive and lemon groves. Sit in a local square and sip cerveza, while you drink in the authentic Spanish atmosphere.
The region is bookended by two very different cities. British owned Gibraltar is at the west and Malaga to the east. The latter, which was Picasso’s birthplace, has become an exciting, cosmopolitan city.
You’ll find a huge array of properties, from luxurious villas to cool apartments. The region also has excellent provision for your health and education needs. And did we mention the beaches? There are over 100km for you to explore!
