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.

A beautiful location and a base with all the amenities of home. The owner provides a welcome package including food and a bottle of wine, really appreciated. Hope to return in the future, and would highly recommend if you want a relaxing or busy holiday. Only downside for my wife and I, both late 60s was the steep gradients but we managed. Plenty of restaurants and bars and even better ice cream parlours to enjoy. Loved it.

We were so pleased with the facilities the villa provided, making it a real 'home from home'. It is really spacious and clean, with top quality furnishings and fittings. We enjoyed sitting out on the terraces with a drink and looking out at the breath-taking views down between the mountains, at Torrox Costa and the sea. The unmade road was a challenge to find and negotiate for 1.5kms, through 3 small fords and single hairpin drive up to the villa. Luckily, we arrived in daylight and quickly got used to it, so just enjoyed the peace and quiet of the area. The booking process was easy and communication great, so would highly recommend this villa.
