Last year, the population increased by 9,438 people thanks to the emigration to the Sun Coast and the province of Málaga.
In total there were 26,506 people from abroad who moved to the Sun Coast. 17,519 Spanish citizens moved from other parts of Spain to the province of Málaga.
Finally a good decision on the overloaded coastal road. Much traffic and many accidents have been everyday on the coastal road between Fuengirola and Marbella.
From the turn of the year 2019/2020, the payment motorway (AP-7) will be free. The agreement with the company that today handles the operation of the motorway expires and it has been decided to make the highway free! This is to reduce the traffic on the coastal road that is now hard hit by accident.
