Which area of Spain should you buy property in?

Anyone looking to purchase a property in Spain will certainly be spoilt for choice, as there is an abundance of stunning villas and new development apartments ready to be snapped up all over the country. 

Spain is the top European destination that Brits choose to emigrate to, and it’s not hard to see why. With a sunny climate, stunning beaches and delicious cuisine, Spain offers an excellent quality of life. 

Whether you’re dreaming of a villa on the Costa del Sol, or a modern apartment in a city, the best place for you to buy property really comes down to how you feel about the local area and what you like to do in your spare time. 

So if you’re wondering where the best area is for coastline, golfers, families, or even winter sun, our guide will help you decide which area of Spain you should buy property in. 

Best area in Spain for coastline

Spain has almost 5000km (3,084 miles) of coastline to be explored, with each coastline divided into separate regions with different names. Costa del Sol, Costa Brava, Costa Blanca…you get the idea. 

When it comes to finding the best type of coast for you, though, it all depends on what type of experience you enjoy. 

If you prefer the wild waves of the Atlantic Ocean, then the Costa de Morte is your best bet. 

If you enjoy clear waters and the sunshine of the Mediterranean coast, then the Costa Brava or Costa del Sol are the best options for you.

Best area in Spain for families

Spain is the ideal place to take families of any age, with short flight-times and speedy airport transfers.

If you’re searching for a property that will make a great second home for your children or grandchildren when they come to visit, then the lovely town or Benalmádena on the Costa del Sol is definitely worth a look. 

The town has become a popular family destination, with a modern vibrant Marina, and nearby child-friendly attractions like Selwo Marina, Tivoli World, Sea Life, Butterfly Park, & nearby Aqualand.

Best area in Spain for winter sun

Spending winter in Spain offers us Brits a chance to leave those heavy winter coats in the UK, and southern Spain is especially delightful in the winter months. 

Malaga, for example, is the capital of the Costa del Sol (which literally translates as Coast of the Sun) and is just as lovely in the winter as it is in the summer. 

Generally speaking, the further south you go in any country will bring warmer climates. So, if winter sun if top of your priority list, then you can’t go wrong with a property in the Costa del Sol.
