At the foothills of the Sierra de Mijas mountains resides the small town of Coin – offering an authentic and quieter type of Spanish living away from the hustle and bustle of the coast and tourist filled resort towns.
Coin has a lot to offer for families, couples, first time buyers, retirees or those looking for the perfect holiday home. This charming little village is the perfect combination of a quiet laid back location providing authentic Spanish living but within close proximity to much sought after transport links, beautiful beaches and plenty of great resorts and entertainment.
Situated within the fertile valleys of the Rio Grande overlooking the picturesque Guadalhorce valley – Coin is surrounded by an abundance of orchards and farmland and is a wonderful place to enjoy walking, long hikes and taking in the stunning mountain views.
Coin is a popular town with foreign residents who are looking to reside in a more authentic Andalucian environment. There are plenty of options for shopping, restaurants and leisure activities but if you want more variety then Malaga is just a 20 minute drive away.
Malaga Airport – 35km
Marbella beach – 30km
Torremolinos – 23km
Benalmadena – 18km
Fuengirola – 18km
Those living in Coin get to enjoy all the benefits of the sub-tropical Mediterranean climate with hot summers and warm winters.
In summer months average daily temperatures sit around 30ºC but with minimal humidity and the Mediterranean Sea providing frequent breezes the high temperatures are very manageable and allow residents to make the most of everything the area has to offer.
Coin is a great location for everyone whether you like to indulge in some retail therapy, play a few rounds of golf, enjoy delicious meals out or relax on a sandy beach and top up your tan. There’s no shortage of things to do in and around Coin.
The town itself has a wide variety of supermarkets, independent corner shops and some really affordable bars and restaurants providing sunny terraces and alfresco dining.
A fabulous recent addition made a few years ago is the ‘CC La Trocha’ shopping centre! Here you can peruse the various shops offering things such as clothing, shoes, phones and accessories, pet care, health foods and more as well as several cafes, a cinema, gymnasium with a spa, swimming pool and rooftop paddle courts.
The beautiful beaches of Marbella, Torremolinos, Benalmadena and Fuengirola are some of the closest to Coin and within easy driving distance. These are great places to enjoy some sunshine, splash around with the kids or take part in some water sports. There is also an abundance of shops, restaurants and amenities nearby, so you won’t run out of things to do.
