Coín

Coín is a town in the Málaga province, Spain, about 40 kilometers west of the provincial capital, Málaga and 35 kilometers north of Marbella.

With an official population of just over 20,000 inhabitants, Coín is perhaps the most up and coming inland town on the Costa Del Sol. People are attracted to Coín due to the fact it is only 25 minutes from the beautiful beaches of Málaga and Marbella, including the 50 km stretch of coastline in between which includes the popular resorts of Torremolinos, Fuengirola and Benalmadena.

Coín however retains its original small Spanish town look and feel. It’s also a modern town and has a great infrastructure with the newly built La Trocha shopping centre, at least 4 large supermarkets, a Spanish cinema, bowling alley and plenty of quality bars and restaurants.

Coín has a rich history with both the Moors and the Romans ruling the town in its past, with the Moors defining and controlling the town from 929AD until 1485 when the Christians invaded and took control of Coín.

Coín is set amongst the scenery of Andalusian mountains, with the Sierra de Las Nieves to the north providing a picturesque background.

The area is perfect for all kinds of activities like hiking, horse back riding, and ofcourse golf. The Costa del Sol is famous for it’s golfcourses.
