Introducing Your Guide to Moving to Malaga & the Costa del Sol

We’re super excited at Guide to Malaga because we’ve just launched our latest ebook. And it’s the biggest one yet – a full 170 pages! Your Guide to Moving to Malaga & the Costa del Sol is a slight departure from our usual ebook library because in this one, we turn to relocation.

But like all Guide to Malaga ebooks, this one does what it says on the tin too. It contains literally everything you need to know about moving to Malaga and the Costa del Sol.

Did you know? We update this ebook every 3 months. When was the last update? July 2023.

Why this latest ebook?

Malaga and the Costa del Sol have been popular relocation spots for years. But a combination of factors has put this spot in southern Spain on the must-move-to map more firmly than ever before.

Between them Covid-19 and Brexit have made more people look long and hard at where they live. Enjoying year-round sunshine has become even more desirable. So have fresh air and being by the sea. Add to these, great connections and quality lifestyle and it’s easy to see why Malaga and Costa del Sol have taken centre stage on the relocation radar.

Why did you write this guide?

At Guide to Malaga, we get a ton of emails every week asking questions about Malaga. They’re mostly tourism-related, but since autumn 2020 their focus has shifted to enquiries about relocation.

You have asked us lots of questions about moving to Malaga and the Costa del Sol. From practical queries about residence permits and finding a school to more general questions about where is the best place to live.

We listened, took note and then answered them all. Plus a lot of others too.

The result? Literally all you need to know in 170 pages jam-packed with information.
