Description:Miami Playa is a seaside resort located 20 minutes south of Salou. There are no high-rise blocks or apartments, the beaches are far less crowded, and nightlife is limited. The resort has broad streets, with its residential areas a good distance form the main tourist resorts. The beaches are set in sand and shingle bays, overlooked by rocky cliffs.

Within the resort there are many developments consisting of villas, chalets and low-rise flats. Miami Playa is popular with foreign homebuyers such as the British, German, French, Dutch and Swiss, as well as the Spanish and local Catalans.  Its very cheap to get here even in the peak season.  If you book on the internet you could get a return flight for less than £50!

This area makes a great holiday home for the family and can provide a nice income when not used sufficient enough to cover all costs of the property.  It’s a non-resort resort area and gives you an alternative to what we know as a Spanish holiday.  If I had to go for one area that offered the best capital growth then this would be it – do I need to say anymore!
