Shopping on the Costa del Sol

Shopping on the Costa del Sol in one respect is similar to shopping in the rest of Andalucia. Plenty of small, often family-run, shops still pack out the streets of small towns and resorts, in addition to this there are more hyper-markets, shopping centres and specialist international shops.

Souvenirs

If you're visiting the Costa del Sol and hoping to shop for interesting things to take home with you, you'll probably want to take excursions just inland from the Coast in order to find real traditional souvenirs. For example, in the mountain village of Tolox, local men still carve kitchen utensils during the summer months when the government pays them to sit at lonely outposts throughout the mountains watching for signs of forest fires. In Ronda, locals are known for the fine furnishings they produce.

On the Costa del Sol you will mostly find the typical trinkets and ceramic wares sold throughout this region. It's also easy to find African imports, especially from nearby Morocco and Senegal. 

The Costa del Sol can also be a great place to shop for great fashion, especially in Marbella. And all along the coast you'll find shops full of locally fashioned leather goods, from purses to shoes to coats. Also, there is a thriving local lingerie business with many items sold in small shops in the centre of Málaga produced by women living in the surrounding countryside and pueblos.
