As with all this coast line you wont find it hard to get some cold drinks and food to take on to the beach. It can get very busy in the high season but its a welcome change from the same ol, same ol beach near you.

The location of this studio Apartment is excellent, less than five minutes from the Train and Bus Stations.and five minutes from the beach.

Older part of the resort around the headland. Lots of nice backstreet bars and restaurants. Plenty of character and nice beach.

Nice beach. I especially like the restaurants just on the beach. You can eat great seafood for really low price like 10-15 eur maximum.

This is our fifth time back to this area. It is within 15 minutes travel by taxi from the airport, the surrounding area is traffic free and very atmospheric but within a 15/20 minute 'promenade' to Torremolinos.
