The Costa del Sol News was published and was on sale in Newsagents on the Costa del Sol until mid 2010s. This this weekly newspaper took a great pride in its solid local coverage of the coastal region it serves. English-speaking residents welcomed the paper, giving the 'Sol', as it is affectionately known, a steady increase in readership since the newspaper was launched.
Much had changed within its pages since the first edition was published in October 1996 as a black and white fortnightly. Today the Costa del Sol News appears on the newsstands every Thursday and its bright full colour front page is easily recognisable. Inside the paper, readers can find a wide selection of local topics including news, current events, fiscal and legal advice, sport, Costa TV Times, motoring, free classifieds section, regular columns and competitions with exciting prizes. As the paper continues to win the confidence of readers and advertisers, so it grows and this summer sees a bigger, better paper packed with more news and more stories.
