Got a taxi up from the coast to the old village early on a Saturday evening. Arrived and it was very quiet. Beautiful little town and views from the church are fantastic. We ate dinner in the square- had to wait as the 'kitchen' didn't open until 7pm. We didn't mind though as we had a drink and soaked up... More

Excellent place to visit and much quieter than Mijas. Very Spanish in Character. Easy access to Arroyo, Benalmadena, Torremolinos, Fuengirola Mijas and Malaga. We have friends who live there and meet at local restaurants. Views are breathtaking. Lovely old church to visit.

Very nice place! You can take the evening bus from the city center for 2 EUR and go to the pueblo to drink wine and make a walk. Completely different place. So calm and not so touristic. Great narrow streets with white buildings. The last bus to Benalmadena is about midnight

We got a bus here and thoroughly enjoyed our day. It's a magical place with winding streets and fantastic views of the coast. We bought bread, cheese and juice and had lunch by the Church where there was shade and a lovely breeze. Great!

Not much there are bars really want you to eat. Pretty little lanes and houses covered in flower pots. Very pretty use of small frontages to create a garden. Fountained courtyards. Make sure you walk out to the Cecil Manrique garden around the chapel for stunning views of the area. We did not get down to the pretty castle (which... More

My fiancé and I spent around 4 hours here & had a great time. We got a bus from Benalmadina for around €1.5 euros each, which was great value. The pueblo is perfect for a relaxed stroll around the quaint old streets filled with lovely white buildings & beautiful flowers. There are two impressive squares lined with restaurants/ cafe bars....

The pueblo is a small town but very pretty with nice shops and restaurants . There are drinks bars too. We had a lovely jug of sangria on the way back to the bus on a very hot day! The view over the coast is magnificent from the little church up from the town square. There are plenty of places... More
