"Cinematic Sol: Costa del Sol Shines as a Hollywood Blockbuster Location!"

Lights, Camera, Costa del Sol: Unleashing Blockbuster Magic!

Get ready for a cinematic extravaganza as the enchanting Costa del Sol embraces its new role as a bustling Hollywood film set. The stage is set for a captivating journey through Malaga, where not only the vibrant shop windows and lively atmosphere await, but also the thrilling chance of stumbling upon a film shoot. Brace yourself, for up to three captivating series, both homegrown and international, have seized the city centre to capture the essence of their latest seasons.

Leading the charge is Netflix, making a triumphant return with the filming of the second season of the uproarious Spanish comedy, "Machos Alfa." But that's not all! The streaming giant also unveils its colossal new production, "Kaos," which once again descends upon Malaga to add even more mesmerizing scenes to its already captivating repertoire.

In a stunning twist, the third series to grace these sun-kissed shores is none other than "We Were the Lucky Ones" by Hulu, the American streaming platform (part of the Disney Group). This gripping tale delves into the haunting backdrop of World War II and the Holocaust. The production commences its cinematic journey in the heart of the old town, while also venturing into the glamorous embrace of Marbella, where filming began for this poignant wartime drama on a splendid Monday, the 15th of May.

First in the spotlight, waltzing into the centre of Malaga on this delightful Tuesday, the 16th of May, is the lovable franchise, "Machos Alfa." Created by the brilliant siblings Laura and Alberto Caballero (known for their hit show "La que se Avecina"), this second season follows the hilarious misadventures of four friends navigating a world of empowered women, tackling themes of masculinity, patriarchy's demise, toxic relationships, and role reversals in the pursuit of equality. Catch them in action as they grace the centre of Malaga, add a touch of seaside charm in Pedregalejo's beach bar, and twirl their comedic talents in an exclusive beach club in Marbella on Wednesday, the 17th of May. And hold your breath for a spectacular night shoot at a lavish mansion on the sun-soaked Costa del Sol come Friday. Oh, and there's even a quick detour to Tarifa (Cadiz) to add that final touch of Andalusian allure to the filming extravaganza.

Next up on the silver screen, get ready to be transported into the captivating world of Georgia Hunter's novel "We Were the Lucky Ones." This remarkable tale, brought to life by the Malaga-based company Fresco Film in collaboration with Old 320 Sycamore and Twentieth Television, paints a riveting picture of a family's struggles during the Second World War and the Jewish Holocaust. As the cameras roll on Thursday, the 18th of May, Calle San Juan will undergo an astonishing transformation, morphing into a vibrant corner of Brazil. With charming signs in Portuguese adorning the shop fronts, the bustling street will transport you to another time and place, beckoning you to witness this powerful tale unfold.

But wait, there's more! Brace yourself for the return of "Kaos," the electrifying Netflix series that weaves together spine-tingling thrills and the enchantment of Greek mythology. Rejoice as Jeff Goldblum takes the reins, bringing his inimitable charisma to the screen after Hugh Grant's departure from the project. All3Media and Brightstar collaborate to craft this latest masterpiece, entrusting the Costa del Sol's own Fresco Film to weave their magic once again. Last year, they captured the essence of the region, showcasing the splendour of the

 Costa del Sol, Seville, Jérez, Valencia, and Madrid. Unforgettable Greek settings emerged from the streets of Calles Carretería, Parra, Paseo del Parque, and Alameda de Colón. This time, the enchanting neighborhood of Lagunillas will take centre stage, alongside other breath-taking locations across the province.

So, prepare to be spellbound as the Costa del Sol unveils its mesmerizing transformation into a vibrant Hollywood film set. As you explore Malaga over the next two weeks, you won't just discover delightful shops and a lively ambiance, but also the pulsating energy of film production. The sun-drenched streets become a playground for creative brilliance, where dreams come alive and stories unfold amidst the Mediterranean charm. Lights, camera, action—the Costa del Sol shines as a true star of the silver screen!

Marbella's Shoreline Set for a 'Sand-sational' Upgrade!

With a 'can-do' spirit that would make a sand castle builder proud, the Marbella town hall is steering a beach revitalisation project right off the pages of a fairy tale. Like a magnificent sand migration, the process kicked off at Las Chapas-Alicate and will sweep through Casablanca, La Fontanilla, and San Pedro Alcántara.  Mayor Ángeles Muñoz let slip that a mountainous 120,000 cubic metres of sand would be borrowed from the town hall’s own treasure chest to finance this sandy renaissance. "The central government seems content playing in the shallow end, leaving us to dive deep for a definitive coastline stabilisation solution," Mayor Muñoz said, clearly not one to bury her head in the sand. In a stroke of midnight genius, the work is taking place under the cloak of darkness - from midnight until 8am - sparing sun-seekers and local business the sight of bulldozers invading their tranquil beaches. Mayor Muñoz confessed that the project couldn't have hit the groun
