The Costa del Sol has been synonymous with tourism since the 1950s, when the rich and famous began to visit in their droves. It quickly became an international holiday destination, especially after the rebuilding of Málaga airport, which helped drive the tourism boom that exploded creating the South of Spain, as we know it now.

Despite the property development that has taken place over the years, you don’t need to scratch far under the surface to discover the Spanish heart of the area. Stretching from Malaga to Estepona, this region has a plethora of riches to offer both visitors and residents.

The fine sandy beaches are often the main attraction, but there is so much more to experience along the coast. There are ample charming white villages, with jasmine lined cobbled streets nestled in the mountains, exuding much sought after Spanish charm.

The Costa del Sol is swamped with history and protected places of natural interest, with enough activities to keep even the sportiest of individuals engaged. There are numerous award-winning golf courses for enthusiasts, with clubhouses for those who just want to enjoy the atmosphere and beautiful surroundings. Not to mention the countless restaurants and bars to satisfy every palate scattered across the area.

The coast is also home to a great variety of towns and developments, to cater for all budgets and each with its own character and benefits. Torremolinos, Benalmádena, Fuengirola and Marbella are not only tourist hot spots, but also busy working towns, where there are an assortment of homes for sale and rent, including apartments, fincas and villas. Whilst neighbouring locations have quieter suburban areas, especially popular with families.

There is great diversity in nationalities and types of residents, but they all have one thing in common and that is the irresistible draw to live in a wonderful climate by the sea, offering an enviable laid back quality of life, even for those working full time.

These are just some of the reasons that property on the Costa del Sol continues its popularity with savvy investors.
