“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

This is a wonderful avenue made of marble. It is filled with sculptures by Salvador Dali. There are lovely fountains and seating areas. It takes you to the sea. What a fantastic amenity in such a central area.

“Good for a walk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

If you can negotiate the narrow, car filled streets, and then park, (the public car park is often full) this is an area worth exploring. Strolling along by the sea, passing Dali & Soriano sculptures along the way plus the obligatory people watching, you can while away many an hour. There are many restaurants, shops and cafes to explore too.

“Lovely area for a stroll with plenty of restaurants & cafes close by”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

The Avenida del Mar used to be covered by a large flower garden with earth paths and park benches. In the 1990s it was excavated and converted into an underground car park, now covered by ivory coloured marble and bronze statues by Eduardo Soriano and Salvador Dali. There are many excellent restaurants, cafeterias and pubs that surround the Avenida & at the end of the avenue is Venus Beach - Playa el Fuerte. At the top end is the Parque Alameda, full of exotic trees, marble paths and ceramic tiled benches.
The underground car park is ideally placed for this area of Marbella. Then wander around taking in the statues, resting in the shade of the park and having a bite to eat close by.

“Very lively beach, beautiful views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

Went there 8/2013. This is a beautiful walkway leading to a very live,y boardwalk and great beach with very nice views. The boardwalk is full of restaurants and shops to keep you entertained. The beach is busy, but room is always available. The walkway is lined with Dali sculptures, with the beach as background. Off the beach, there is a huge square with endless restaurants, shopping, walking and people watching. The whole area makes for a great day at the beach with something for everyone. Definitely worth a visit.
