Situated in the valley of the Rio Grande in the province of Malaga, Coín is one of the most up and coming villages on the Costa del Sol.
This once small village is expanding at an amazing pace and is fast becoming a popular place of residence. Coín has a wealth of important architecture including several churches, the Church of san Andres is also known as the Caridad and forms part of the hospital. The Church of San Juan is one of the largest churches in the province and has been officially declared a national monument.
Coín also houses and important ceramics factory, located on the main road from Fuengirola and a working film studio that was once the set for the TV series ‘El Dorado’. The studio is located on the outskirts of Coín, alongside the main highway to Marbella. The centre of Coín has a wonderful plaza where the old Town Hall is located and local residents sit and while away the hours. The new Town Hall is located in another new plaza with an underground car park, fountains, gardens and several fine bars. The small, narrow streets are lined with family owned shops.The trade of citrus fruits is important in Coin as the quality of oranges, lemons and mandarins is excellent. Oven-made bread is also very popular here. In many cases the ovens are still fired with wood. In the pastry shops you can find the famous 'roscos', a bread based pastry filled with figs.

Fertile Valley Setting
Coín tends to be overlooked by many tourists visiting the Costa del Sol, who disembark at Málaga airport and head straight for the bright lights of the coastal resorts. Local Spaniards and expats who call the Costa del Sol home know better, of course. A day trip to Coín is always something to be savoured. The town's traditional appeal, Andalucian authenticity and breathtaking location make it extremely easy on the eye – and the wallet.
Coín is not the sleepy little backwater it is sometimes made out to be. It has a large and thriving expat community and, on the outskirts of the town, there are several highly sought-after residential estates comprising spacious detached villas (many with their own private pool), attractive semi-detached properties, modern townhouses and well-appointed apartments, all surrounded by bucolic countryside. In the town centre, there are not too many new-build homes to choose from, but traditional townhouses and flats are popular with an increasing number of foreign buyers.
Coín sits on a settlement that is older than antiquity, and was once a Roman centre where marble – as well as citrus, olive, cork and almond cultivation – was the catalyst for its growth.
Today, the citrus and olive groves remain, blanketing the hills that form Coín's natural boundary. The fertile valley is fed by several fresh water streams which, in the 15th and 16th centuries, were diverted into fountains that are still evident in the town's narrow streets and charming plazas.
At the main Plaza Alameda, captivating cafés jostle for your custom as they spill out onto the square, and the whole town offers an excellent selection of restaurants, many serving an intriguing array of tapas.
Outside the town, the La Trocha commercial centre has several large chain stores, a pádel tennis centre and a cinema; and some of the area’s finest hiking and mountaineering trails can also be found on the outskirts.
Dining out is inexpensive and a great social event. With scores of outstanding tapas bars and mesons, plus a few expat-orientated establishments dotted about the town, finding a place for a beer, glass of wine or gin tonic is an easy matter.
Additional night-time pursuits could include a moonlit stroll at the renovated El Nacimiento spring, complete with artificial lake, parkland and cafetería.
