Thumbs up Local English Speaking Newspapers Costa Del Sol

Are there any English speaking (LOCAL) newspapers in the Costa Del Sol that you can run adverts for your business?
I have heard of the Sur in English but online, can you get the actual newspaper also?
Thanks
Peter

There is also the Town Crier, telephone 902 007 280 or fax 952 454 423, the Friday Add, www.friday-ad.es , plus many other small magazines that you can place adverts in. If this is for your classes then another magazine that would be good for you is Kids on the Costa, www.kids-on-the-costa.com

Yes - The Sur in English is available every Friday and distributed free of charge via newsagents, bars, restaurants and estate agents. Another possibility is The Town Crier - again a freebie weekly. I've just joined this forum, principally to answer your question, so I've not made out my profile yet, however, in the meantime, I'm situated in the Montemar area of Torremolinos so you can see these publications cover a wide area - the whole of The Sol.

Good luck with your venture.

Oh, I intend to - and would have joined sooner or later anyway, but seeing something to which I could contribute just prompted me to get stuck in sooner rather than ......!

Hi,
There is also Costa del Sol news, which is €1. I usually pick one up in the airport on the way out!

Thanks everyone for the info, very helpful.Another newspaper question. Would anyone reccomend any 1 paper/mag over another for advertising a business. Bearing in mind we are looking to run kids personal development and kickboxing classes and adult fitness and kickboxing classes. Also looking to do personal training 1-2-1 for fitness, weight loss, stress relief using a kickboxing format. We also teach pensioners by the way, but in a way they can gain flexibility and fitness but without injury or killing themselves with a crazy regime.
Thanks again

The Sur covers more area than the others, and is the most read. The kids magazine would be good if aiming at children.

Have you decided where you are going to run your club yet?

We are coming over to the Costa Del Sol at the end of May to have a look around. I need (in my opinion) to be as accessible to the expat community as possible, as this will be my main market. I will obviously teach any nationality though. We are going to be staying in Benalmadena for 4 days and will drive up and down the coast to have a look at commercial units for rent. We need nothing but an empty premises.
Where do you think is the heaviest population of expat Brits with families?

If you are staying in Benalmadena Costa then you should check out the Arroyo de la Miel area plus, of course, the Benalmadena Pueblo - both right on your doorstep. Heading up the coast you have the Nerja area with it's large ex-pat population whilst down the coast you have Fuengirola and the Calahonda areas - all ex-pat haunts although I'm not too sure about the family aspect.

Very large British population round this area, also commercial premises would be a lot cheaper than Marbella area. There are also many British/International schools, so a good area to try and start up classes.

Think I may have mentioned it before but very large sports centre just opened in Arroyo de la Miel area of Benalmadena, could check these out as well as the schools also.
