Cariheula is a nice safe flat resort

No traffic and flat. Lovely beach and great restaurants. Not the best for decent accommodation. To get on public transport you have to get a taxi or walk up a hill

It was too cold to actually sit on the beach but we walked along the prom at least twice a day and it looked very organised and ready for when the temperature is higher. Some of the bars and shops are still closed because it is still early in the season but the ones that were open provided you with... More

Lovely part of Spain with very good beaches with plenty of good restaurants and bars, beware of some bars like Balu Beach over charging for advertised priced drinks on their boards outside

Yes, it's just about all there in La Carihuela, lots of tourist junkets, nice little beach bars, beach side restaurants, love those ones with the wood burning barbecue with the sardines..mmmmm! Watch all the people going up and down, the posers, the beautiful people, the peddlers, skaters, joggers etc. But most of all, watch out for those pickpockets, they are... More

starting from puerto benalmadena walked consecutive 45 minutes on that shore but still could not come to the end. So nice sandy beaches, restaurants and many places to relax. Although it was february all beaches look like very clean, everyday sun was shining-that was our chance.

The walk along the seafront is a long and scenic stroll with lots of bars and shops along the way. If you feel adventurous the train takes you to Fuengirola or Benalmadena for only a couple of euros. Much easier and cheaper than taxis.

La Carihuela beach is most famous for its many bars and restaurants along it, frankly, the sea is not that good, the presence of the many private beaches does not leave much room for swimming or free relax so I think there are better places than this if you wanted to relax at the beach choose for example the Bajondillo...

This eaterie is great for early morning ham and cheese toasty for 1 Euro plus coffee goes down well, or if you fancy glass of lager 69cents, try the other toasty with jammon on with oodles of oil on bread accompanied with a few crisps ideal place on the sea front
