The report highlighted Arteixo as the best place to find bargains in the area.

Llucmajor was the standout choice for budget-conscious renters in the Baleares while Arrecife and Granadilla de Abona got the nod in the Canary Islands.

Responding to the Fotocasa survey, the Property Consultant's Forum agreed this could also be an opportune moment for those looking to purchase property.

It said that "buying a beach property high supply meant bargains and prices have fallen by as much as 50 percent  from the highs of a few years ago."
