Welcome to the new

  • The leading English-language newspaper for southern Spain has unveiled the brand new version of its website

SUR in English has been a pioneer throughout its more than 30 years of providing information to English-speaking residents and visitors in southern Spain. After being the first successful newspaper to be published in English on the Costa del Sol back in 1984, in 1996 its website was launched, even before its elder sister publication, SUR (in Spanish) went online.

Now SUR in English has taken one more step forwards with the total renovation of its website. Backed by the state-of-the-art technology of one of Spain's largest media groups, Vocento, and the team of developers at SUR, the new has all the popular sections readers enjoyed on the old site, with an emphasis on news from the areas with the largest international populations.

With, readers around the world can find out what's going on in the province of Malaga and around Spain thanks to the team of Spanish and British reporters at the SUR group of newspapers. Gibraltar news is also covered with its own section.

Features and interviews are combined in the Lifestyle section while What To Do continues to let people know about the charity and cultural events happening on the Costa del Sol and further afield.

Sports fans will also find the latest results and news from Malaga and Marbella football clubs, as well as local rugby, basketball and other teams and events.

But while is moving forward, the free print edition remains strong, with a weekly circulation of 50,000 and a readership of more than 200,000. And the new website offers online readers the chance to see the latest and past print editions by downloading the pdf version.

The new is designed with our advertisers in mind providing the perfect vehicle to spread the word about products and services, however big or small.
