    I wouldn’t buy in Malaga. It is ok to visit for the odd day but in general I find it too congested, polouted and noisy.

    I would buy in Malaga city. From the parts i know, the most interesting areas have been: malagueta, teatinos or the centre around calle larios.

    I would be happy to buy there too, I prefer it to Marbella, it’s more Spanish, has great shops, cafes and tapas, a waterfront too, and the airport on the doorstep, nothing wrong with lively cities either. just my opinion though. 8)

    Drug sellers on every street corner, traffic gridlocked all day, knife crime up 40% in a year…….just like living in Hackney (apologies to Hackney) :mrgreen:

    cosmopolitan city, highest concentration of wealth in the province, small but growing IT industry, one of hte largest harbours in spain, third most important airport in spain, commercial ‘capital’ of andalucia, multiple universities, etc…

    every place has got its good and bad

    They are not priorities for living in a City, nicer places are closer to Airport etc.

    Few empty places here, right in the centre. 😆 Away from tourists sites it’s a shit of a City.

    Really?
    wealth attracts wealth
    major port attracts business, IT park attracts specialised skills (means higher wages)
    major airport hub also attracts business
    etc…

    all of this brings wealth and services to an area.

    So if your looking for city living and want easy access to the rest of spain and beyond, Malaga offers it.

    and this not include hte historical and cultural aspects of the city.

    Fuengi: its intresting what you say ” primary residence not a holiday property ” Why surely the city covers both aspects. Its like Nice in France.

    You are correct. But I am looking at it subjectively. You did ask why we would buy there.

    Whatever floats your boat but I would not live there for a pension. Stuck in an apartment, horrendous traffic noise. It is no way as good as Nice.(wouldn’t live there either) Too many druggies, dealers, Gypsies and thieves. Don’t you posters read the spanish newspapers. Give me Torremolinos any day 😆

    but it is quite a large city. there are good areas and bad, just like every other town and city. That is why Shakeel asked about areas aswell.

    I clearly have not spent enough time in Malaga because each time I’ve been there, I’ve felt perfectly safe and had a good time there and safer than many UK towns.

    However, we were threatened by a group of young males in broad daylight in Marbella, unfortunately Spanish, who were asking for money whilst we were strolling beside the main through road near those lawyers DLM, maybe it was them! 😉

    Percentage wise málaga has a much higher crime rate than marbella. It is the fourth highest city in Spain for robberies from cars too. Away from the tourist drag I would rate it as one of the assholes of Spain. Vandalism is high too, youths being fond of setting fire to rubbish skips which sometimes spreads to cars. They also manage to set fire to a few tramps too each year but that passes without much comment! Marbella is sheer paradise to that place 😀
