It is a lovely area. Lots of restaurants/cafes to choose from where you are not rushed and can sit and enjoy a coffee or food at your leisure. The most amazing toy shop I have ever seen is in one of the little streets here. Take your time to wander around and look at the buildings, shops and soak in... More

Go to the Old Town and explore the narrow streets full of interesting shops, cafes and restaurants. Busy at peak season but so much nicer to explore when it is quiet. Orange Square at the heart of the Old Town dates back to 1485 and here you will find the Town Hall and the famous orange trees. Lots of cafes... More

My wife and I went there last Fridayevening. A place hard to find and if it is not recommended, one would never go there as there is nothing to see when one looks outside the window but a brick wall from the opposite restaurant la Nina del Pisto, 1,5 m away from Estrecho. A narrow street so to speak. Inside... More

We expected the marbella of the Sunday papers and found the absolute opposite. Out of season the old town is beautiful, peaceful and full of character.. Let the rowdy folk have the sea front, we will keep to the old town.

Fabulous well preserved old town just a short walk from the beach. Plenty of boutiques and tourist shops but nothing too glitzy. Plenty of bars and restaurants especially on The Orange Square which is very pretty and of course a magnet for tourists. In February it was lovely and peaceful - in August apparently not! Wandering the streets without a... More
