At Prime Invest we have compiled the five best coastal areas in which to buy an apartment, taking into account price per square meter, location, infrastructure and quality of life.
Gandía - Costa Blanca

With only 75,000 registered inhabitants, its occupancy triples in the summer season. Its closeness with the Mediterranean Sea and interesting areas such as Jávea or Denia, make Gandía an attractive city to invest in property, especially if it is intended for holidays.
La Manga del Mar Menor - Costa Cálida
Murcia is an autonomous community known as the ‘garden’ of Spain. It has virgin coastal areas that attract thousands of visitors every year. La Manga del Mar Menor is one of the areas of Spain with the highest level of investment in property.
The main attraction of La Manga del Mar Menor is its location: it is an area embraced by two seas. On the one hand, the Mar Menor is the largest saltwater lagoon in Europe. On the other hand, the Mar Mayor belongs to the Mediterranean open sea.
Roquetas de Mar - Almería Coast
The seaside region of Roquetas de Mar is located in the south of Spain, in the province of Almería. The region includes different small towns such as Roquetas de Mar City, Aguadulce or El Sabinar.
It is a holiday area where the rest of the year there is a quiet and family atmosphere. It also has a privileged location near the Cabo de Gata Natural Park, a natural area with golden-sand beaches.
Cádiz - Costa de la Luz
Year after year, Cádiz attracts thousands of visitors who seek the warmth of summer on the coast of Cádiz. Its tourist attractions and its privileged location on the Atlantic coast steal the visitors' hearts. For this reason, many of them decide to go further and buy a property in this coastal area in beach areas such as Tarifa, Bolonia, Sacti Petri, Zahara de los Atunes, among others.
Marbella - Costa del Sol
If there is one place in Spain where the value and profitability of housing are stable, it is Marbella. The exclusiveness, the natural environment and the quality of life that Marbella represents make it the most in-demand coastal area in Spain for real estate.
Known for its Golden Mile, Marbella exudes an air of both exclusivity and luxury. A city with high-quality amenities, a wide range of leisure activities such as social clubs, internationally renowned restaurants, a host of golf courses and the peacefulness of living in the breeze of the Mediterranean.
The city of Marbella is part of the Costa del Sol, one of the European areas that enjoys the highest number of hours of sunshine per year - no less than 320 days. This is one of the major attractions that makes it one of the best coastal areas to invest in property.
Furthermore, it is a unique location with areas of high natural value such as the dunes of Artola, only 14 kilometers from the city of Marbella, or its closeness to inland towns in the Málaga province such as Ronda or Tolox.
After the pandemic, it has been one of the cities with the highest demand for real estate. The main reasons for investing in property in Marbella are based on the search for a place that, in addition to a wide range of activities, offers privacy, peacefulness and closeness to nature.
This is an ideal place to invest in a first or a second home or a rental property, both for long-term and holiday rentals, due to its guaranteed profitability.
