Apartments on the Costa del Sol are one of the best investments you can make, either to live or to spend your holidays, or to rent them out. Spectacular beaches, good weather, culture, sports, nature, Mediterranean gastronomy and friendly and welcoming people are some of the characteristics that make the Costa del Sol an unbeatable destination.
Good weather guaranteed
Sunsets on the terrace, a boat trip, going out into the mountains with the family, your children playing in the sand in winter… On the Costa del Sol they know for sure: it’s better to live in the open air. The sun shines more than 300 days a year, so you can enjoy the scenery whenever you want. The winters are mild and cosy, and the summers are cooled by the sea breeze. And this climate is not only reflected in the way of life of the people, but also in their warmth. Here, everyone is welcome and everything works to make you feel at home.
Connections and services
Thanks to the international fame and tourist demand, the Costa del Sol has developed a lot in the last decades and nowadays it has an excellent infrastructure and all the necessary services for a comfortable life. Although some of the apartments on the Costa del Sol may be far away from the crowds, there is always an urban centre with hospitals, restaurants, banks and even international schools nearby. Moreover, it is very easy to reach every corner of the Costa del Sol from all over the world, thanks to the international airport of Malaga and the good road connection.
Incredible beaches for all tastes
On the Costa del Sol, life is lived looking at the sea. Nothing doesn’t get better than a morning stroll along the shore, a game of paddle or a few laps in the late afternoon. Many of the apartments on Costa del Sol are close to wonderful beaches for all tastes: from wide golden sands and calm waters perfect for a family visit to secluded coves surrounded by cliffs for those looking for nature, relaxation and breathtaking scenery. Here are some of our favourites:
Maro Beach, Nerja
In 2013, Maro Beach was voted the best beach in Andalusia and the second best in Spain. Also under the cliffs of Maro, the presence of a waterfall (which you can access by kayak) and the green-blue colour of the sea make it unique. It is surrounded by vegetation, crops and reed beds, and is also ideal for seeing corals and fish. If you go early, the sunrise will leave you open-mouthed.
La Carihuela, Torremolinos
More than two kilometres long (the longest beach in Torremolinos) and dark sand as a result of its volcanic origin make La Carihuela one of the best known beaches. It also retains the charm of Andalusian tradition, with fishing boats as part of the landscape, and don’t miss the seafood restaurants in the area!
Castillo Beach, Fuengirola
The eight hundred metre long Playa del Castillo or Playa del Ejido is located around the Sohail Castle and is noted for its dark sand and very calm waters. Dogs are allowed, there is a wide range of water sports and facilities such as zip wires and trampolines, making it a great place to visit with family or friends. It also has green areas next to the river, ideal for a relaxing time, where you will also find some little boats that can be used for barbecues.
Leisure and culture
The variety of landscapes and environments of the Costa del Sol make it ideal for your leisure time and for practising many types of sports, even in winter. There is a wide variety to choose from, from horse riding to adventure sports such as rafting and caving. The kings are water sports, which can be enjoyed on many of Malaga’s beautiful beaches. Kitesurfing, windsurfing, sailing… Not forgetting golf – there is a reason why the Costa del Sol is known as “the golf coast”. There are 74 courses in total, for all levels.
And among so much nature, landscapes and corners, culture also has its place. The coast of Malaga has a rich history and a vibrant cultural scene, with festivals, artistic events and a wide range of museums and art galleries. In fact, the city of Malaga is home to three of the country’s most important museums: the Picasso Museum Malaga, the Carmen Thyssen Museum and the Centre Pompidou Malaga.
A profitable investment
Another advantage enjoyed by those who own apartments on the Costa del Sol is the opportunity to rent them out on a long term basis or as holiday rentals. The popularity of the Malaga coast, both nationally and internationally, means that there is always a demand for accommodation all year round.
