Here at Property Guides we help British retirees and expats relocate and begin lives abroad. We have compiled a list of the top seven seaside places to buy property in 2017.

The property market in Montenegro has seen double digit growth in recent years with a seaside two-bedroom villa with swimming pool costing only £335,000.

This resort destination has bargain properties and is attracting huge volumes of tourists each year. The capital, Punta Cana, is full of expats, retirees, second-home owners and tourists looking for a beach escape. Reliable and consistent rental yields can be expected and a one-bedroom apartment right near the beach costs a mere £78,000.


Tossa de Mar, Spain, just two hours flying time from London!



Spain has been attracting British holiday-home owners and investors for decades and is still positioned as a great seaside destination to invest in 2017. Prices are beginning to recover in Spain but there are certainly good deals to be had. Popular spots for property investment in Spain include the Costa del Sol where properties start around £1,700 a square meter, Barcelona where historic two-bedroom apartments can be purchased for £400,000 and Marbella where oceanfront homes still compare well in price with other world-class destinations.

If you are buying in Spain, Italy, France or Portugal, come and visit us at Your Overseas Home, in Manchester, Saturday 24th June 2017. Lots of advice and lots of homes.

The pearl of the Mediterranean, Montenegro sits in the south Adriatic and is one of the fastest growing tourist destinations in the world. The property market in Montenegro has seen double digit growth in recent years with a seaside two-bedroom Villa with swimming pool costing only £335K. With strong gains, opportunities for significant rental revenues and a beautiful place to call home or own a second holiday home, Montenegro could be the place for you in 2017.


The strong rental market in Mauritius and growing tourism industry makes it an ideal seaside spot for property investment in 2017. Many overseas buyers choose Mauritius for the non-resident tax benefits that property owners qualify for. This world-class tourism destination has an optimistic future so act now and secure you’re beachfront two-bedroom apartment for £450K.


Dubai’s tumultuous property market is expected to bottom out in 2017, meaning excellent investment opportunities for those wishing for a home in the United Arab Emirates. For those looking to enter this potentially lucrative real estate market it is now considered a ‘buyer’s market’. For that exotic second home or investment property in the sun, now is the time to enter the Dubai property market. A one bedroom apartment at the Palazzo Versace Dubai is selling for approx. £1 million.


Portugal’s property market has gone from strength to strength in recent years and there is no better place to invest than in Algarve. This seaside destination has everything anyone would want for a holiday home or place to live abroad. Beautiful scenery, friendly people and an interesting culture. Though on the rise, Algarve is still affordable compared to other beachside locations; for a three bedroom seaside villa with a pool expected to pay £300K.
