The sale price of homes on the Spanish coast has grown by 5.7% over the past year, to stand at 1,727 euros per square meter, according to a study published Wednesday by Idealista.
Homes located on the Costa del Sol are the most expensive in the last year, with an increase of 9.9%. It is followed by the coastal municipalities of the Balearic Islands, with a variation of 9.3%, and the coast of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, with an increase of 6.3%.
Next are the homes located on the Costa del Maresme (Barcelona), with a price spike of 4.6%, and the Costa Cálida (Murcia) and the Costa de Valencia, with an increase of 4.1% in both cases.
With price increases of less than 4%, there are dwellings on the Costa Blanca in Alicante (+3.7%), the Costa de Las Palmas (+3.6%), the Rías Baixas (+3.2%) and the Costa de Almería (+3.1%).

The greatest decrease occurred in the Mariña lucense (-6.5%), followed by the Costa da Morte in A Coruña (-1.1%), the Biscayan coast (-0.7%) and the Costa Verde in Asturias (-0.6%). In all other Spanish coastal areas, prices increased.
