What you didnt mention was how far you were prepared to travel to get to Malaga. At 45mins travel is Torre del Mar which is quite lively. Music festival this week. Lots of bars restaurants, plenty of your aged people.

I am also finding out that I am leaving out large amounts of valuable information haha! Thanks Beach Buddy .

I suppose it would have to be a max 45min- 1hr from Malaga airport , otherwise the commute including the flight may prove too much all the time. Public transport is a definite plus.

Probably should also of mentioned a location with a good population all year round , and although I understand towns will be far more quieter in the winter months , I would be looking for somewhere that still maintains a decent amount of life all year.

I never would of classed myself as fussy , but reading back through all my boxes to be ticked I seem to be coming across this way unfortunately!! As I said before this move is very important so just trying to get as close to what I think I may want and take it from there with actual visits for the next few weeks and months.

If you don't fancy Malaga city, then I would suggest any of the towns that run along the cercanias train line, which is Malaga to Fuengirola.

I guess you know there is a train line from Malaga city to Fuengirola with 3 trains an hour each way, and there is a station at the airport Thus anywhere on that line may be worth looking at

Many Thanks Costachick and Juan C.

Yes I had a look at this train schedule yesterday evening. Seems like the track extension into Marbella etc seems a long way away unfortunately.

Beach Buddy has given me great ideas of towns to the East , would anyone be able to give me some advice to some of these towns to the west - Torremolinos , benalmadena , Fuengirola , that would best suit what I am looking for.

Any advice or information would be greatly appreciated.

Regards,
Factor50

All what you mentioned to the west are all of a muchness.As said it is all down to personal preference and what rental accomodation is available,the more popular the area the harder it will be.Have a soft spot for Benalmadena as when we came here over 24years ago it's where we bought a bar and that was one hell of an experience and our first property we bought was near Fuengirola.Playamar might suit you and also Arroyo also Carriuela.Montimar.The list is endless.Like other people have said best of luck pal at least you have got it right by renting and if you don't like it you can move on.Wish I had a euro for the amount of times this has been asked on this forum.jajajaja

Really impossible to advise anyone if not knowing them personally. I would probably say Torremuelle as it is on the cercania but another may hate it.

I would quite like (assuming I was daft enough to want to live on the Costa) Fuengirola - it has an Iceland and the best fish and chips on the costa.
