Make a holiday rental, home or villa in Costa East, Costa del Sol your home away from home

The Costa East of the Costa del Sol covers the 54km stretch of coast running east of Malaga City, and is far less developed than the Costa West of the Costa del Sol. The scenery is more dramatic with 200m cliffs, and holiday rental properties are often more traditional than their Costa West counterparts.

Places to holiday on the Costa East, Costa del Sol

Nerja is the Costa East’s main town, housing many of the East Costa del Sol rental properties and villas. It is on the eastern tip of the Costa del Sol, with 16km of fine sandy beaches, meeting azure blue waters of the Mediterranean. The town is nestled between the foothills of the Sierra Almijara Mountains, where the old Town remains quaint and peaceful in its original design. If you take a Costa del Sol holiday property in Nerja, you must walk to the Balcon de Europa to get your bearings before either enjoying the sailing, scuba diving and windsurfing or marvelling at the Nerja Caves.

Five kilometres inland, in the foothills of the Almijara Mountains, is one of the most beautiful towns in Spain, Frigiliana. It provides an ideal escape in a relaxing setting close to the resorts of the coast.

Competa is a jewel of the Costa del Sol, situated high above sea level with stunning panoramic views of the Costa East, with a fascinating network of tiny cobbled streets and cafes.

Inland from the beaches, the village of Vinuela is an outdoor sporting paradise. Situated by Lake Vinuela, the village offers miles of wonderful footpaths, excellent fishing, and two superb golf courses. A holiday villa here is also only 15 minutes from the beaches of the Costa del Sol, and 90 minutes from the skiing in Sierra Nevada in the winter.

Torre del Mar boasts one of the finest promenades on the entire Costa del Sol, and has developed quickly to provide all the facilities needed on holiday. Torrox is also devoted to tourism, and taking a rental property in Torrox means you do not have to leave the town unless you want to!

Things to do in the Costa East Costa del Sol

There is a massive amount to do on the Costa East. A rental property on the Costa del Sol gives you the freedom to get the balance of sailing, fishing, canoeing, diving, surfing, windsurfing, dolphin and whale watching, walking, shopping, climbing mountain biking and hot air ballooning you desire.

Golfing holidays on the Costa del Sol are also hugely popular, with enough golf courses of every style and difficulty to fill a holiday for any standard of golfer.

However, there is no need to do anything strenuous at all whilst on holiday in a Costal del Sol self catering holiday villa. Sunbathing on one of the world class blue flag beaches or sitting in a café in a timeless Andalucian village never fails to inspire.

Weather in Costa East, Costa del Sol

Costa East, Costa del Sol has fantastic weather all year round, with annual averages of 18°C, and summer temperatures soaring to over 30°C.

Quality apartment. Stunning views. Everything you need for family stay

5 of 5
It's very difficult to find a fault with this apartment and I would highly recommend. Facilities were excellent - 2 bathrooms (2 adults / 2 teenage daughters), Balcony, Kitchen, towels/beach mats and parasols, underground parking (large compared to others). The shared pool area is very chilled with sun all day and everyone was really respectful, we were always able to get a sun lounger when we wanted one. I would recommend the pebble beach at the bottom of the access road of the N340 (go down steps to right) . Lastly, I always get a hire car and I would say you need one. We walked into Torrox and back a couple of times and intended to drive into Nerja and walk in to collect car in the morning but never did. Nerja is around 8Km and isn't a safe walk Tip: call a Torrox taxi if you want to goto Nerja from the apartment.

Very comfortable, great location

5 of 5
This was our 3rd time renting in Frigiliana and as before I tried to research as much as possible before deciding on this property. The locality was great with an added bonus of a really good restaurant virtually next door. There is also a couple of small shops a few minutes walk for fresh croissants for breakfast. The appartment itself was very adequate with the added bonus of newly fitted air conditioning (thanks Paul) which meant comfortable nights as well. For those wanting self catering, the kitchen was well equipped. Both bedrooms had comfortable beds with plenty of wardrobe space. The balcony was great, and the sun would be on it from morning till dusk. This was great for alfresco lunch or pre dinner drink before going out. We also used the pool a few times and we felt that the water temperature was heaven about 5pm after a hot day out. The owner Paul was always ready to help as well as Karen who looks after the property. Frigiliana still retains it's charm and I'm sure we will be returning soon.
