A smorgasbord of interesting people

Take a few minutes and just sit and watch the world go by....either from the wall, a bench, a bar or just sat on the beach.....economical fun...and just a great time.

Midway between Torremolinos and Benalmadena and has a lovely atmosphere and feels very Spanish. Not over touristy but everything you need for a good holiday. Fabulous beach...excellent eateries.
