10 11 17

Costa del Sol is home to some of the most sought after properties in Spain. The beauty and abundance of facilities make this area attractive to many buyers from around the world. The location of this area also means that there is great diversity in terms of attractions and landscapes. This means that different areas suit different types of people. Below, you will find details on various areas that suit different lifestyles on Costa del Sol.

Social and Entertainment

If you enjoy living in an area full of life and entertainment, then you will be happy to learn that there are plenty of prime locations waiting on Costa del Sol. From shopping and restaurants to the most amazing nightlife and gorgeous beaches, the southern coastal regions are for you. Some of the best areas for this kind of lifestyle include Fuengirola, Marbella, and Benalmádena. All of these areas are fairly close to one another, however, if you choose to reside in Fuengirola, you can easily reach Malaga City and other destinations along the way such as Los Boliches, Benalmadena-Arroyo de la Miel, and Torreblanca. Even if you don’t plan driving yourself, the public transport in this area makes it easier to get around. With beaches, bars, clubs, and restaurants close by, there’s no shortage of entertainment in this area.

Privacy and Relaxation

If you are more of a private kind of person and you enjoy having your own space, then a country or mountain area would suit your preferences perfectly. An inland move means that you will need to travel somewhat further to reach certain amenities but, in turn, you will enjoy the most amazing views, peaceful surroundings, and security. Think of it as your very own slice of heaven! In most cases, such relaxing areas are the desire of those who wish to enjoy their retirement or those who prefer to lead a quieter lifestyle. Those who work from home also prefer living in an area where their distractions are limited. If you are interested in such a home, we recommend browsing properties in areas such as Ronda, Cartama, Coin, and Alhaurin del Grande. Mijas Golf and Mijas Pueblo are also favoured for their views and close proximity to small towns and villages where you can enjoy the local amenities. If you feel the need for a lively night out, you could always make your way to one of the coastal areas while your peaceful home awaits your return.

Family Living

Costa del Sol is suitable for various residents including families looking for a suitable area to raise their children. When looking for an area that will suit the needs of your family, there are a few items you’ll need to check off your list, the first being schools, of course. Once you find the right school, you will need to make sure that you are able to find work in that same area. If you work from home, it will allow greater flexibility, and you can focus more on living closer to the schools that peak your interest. Some parts of Marbella are suitable for families, and they also offer great opportunities for family entertainment such as beaches. The Old Town is quieter and often preferred for this reason. Other areas that are particularly close to schools, doctors, shops, and other amenities include La Cala, Cabopino, and Calahonda. You will also find aqua parks and other places of interest nearby.

Culture Immersion

For those who are feeling up for an adventure, you might like to immerse yourself in the local culture and way of life. This means that you will need to have an understanding of the Spanish language or at least be prepared to learn. San Pedro  Alcántara is one of the last traditional Spanish towns still in existence. It is not likely that you will hear anyone speaking English in this town which is why it is so important to work on your communication skills before moving to this area. Another traditional town is Estepona where you can enjoy a relaxed lifestyle and make the most of the local beaches for swimming and snorkeling. Estepona also offers some great entertainment thanks to its various amenities. This makes it perfectly balanced in terms of relaxation and fun with that irresistible traditional Spanish charm. If you are planning on looking for work before or after you move, a strong grasp of Spanish is essential should you wish to live in such traditional towns.

Golfing Enthusiasts

For those who enjoy regular rounds of golf, Costa del Sol has plenty to offer. Depending on your needs and preferences, the main choice you will need to make is whether to purchase a property within a golfing estate or nearby. Both offer great benefits. Living on a golf course means that you will enjoy benefits such as impeccable surroundings, superb views, and you can play golf whenever you like. Living near a golf course means that you can enjoy golf whenever you like. Many people enjoy the rules associated with living on a golf course whereas others prefer not to be bound by such rules. This really is a matter of personal preference. From La Cala to Calahonda, there are several fine golfing facilities such as the Miraflores Golf Club. Other fine clubs include Santa Maria and Elviria Hills. An area located behind Puerto Banus is known as Golf Valley, and this is where you will find Aloha, Las Brisas, and Los Naranjos. In these areas, you will find properties that are suited for those on tighter budgets as well as more luxurious homes.
