Costa del Sol is one of the most popular tourist destinations in
the world. It has great diversity with something to offer for almost
everyone and is becoming increasingly popular choice for Property
purchasing as holiday homes or permanent residences. The Costa del
Sol is located on the east and west of Malaga in Andalusia. Andalucía
is a varied region where an increasing number of people are seeking
to buy Spanish Property. The climate is the winters are mild and
the summers hot without becoming over bearing. The province also
boasts a wide variety of cities, coastal resorts and countryside
from the jet set lifestyle of Marbella to Miles of unspoiled and
protected countryside peppered with white villages.
Situated to the west of Malaga and Torremolinos. Although due to the growth of both Benalmadena and Torremolinos there is little distance between the two.
Benalmadena's tourist explosion occurred later than Torremolinos' and it has managed to avoid some of the less attractive large concrete developments of the 1970's. This is still the busy tourist area with crowded beaches and an abundance of British bars and restaurants to cater for most tastes.
The new Puerto Marina is the place to go for young "party goers". Popular with locals and tourists alike the place has a distinctly international feel to it. The area is crammed with a variety of nightclubs and bars playing the latest music and staying open until sunrise (or later). Prices are more expensive than those in Malaga city centre are, however most visitors should find them in line with prices from their home countries or similar tourist resorts. The town also boasts a sea-life centre and the Tivoli theme park.
Benalmadena has aimed for a more family based clientele than the "young, fun-in-the-sun" image associated with Torremolinos.
There are many properties ranging from affordable apartments to villas and larger Spanish holiday homes.
