Lovely area leading from Torremolinos. Fountain in the square, cobbled streets, loads of shops and outdoor restaurants. Lovely stretch of beach with shops along the front. Lovely atmosphere at night with many Spanish families using the restaurants. Would go again.

Nice sandy beach with great waves. Parking is a bit hard to find if you get in late during the day but still not too bad. Lots of restaurant located close by.

Looking for a vacation on the beach? Just 45 minutes from Malaga airport, this is a convenient place to visit. A long weekend or a month's retreat, everything is conveniently located.
