The Andalucia region
Protected from the northern winds by a mountain chain that in some parts comes down to meet the sea, this sheltered coast is shaped by a succession of extensive beaches, coves almost hidden between cliffs, marinas and anchorage for fishing. The mild climate, infrequency of rainfall and the sea breeze make for semitropical vegetation in which palm and cypress trees, bougainvillaea, oleander and hibiscus are common. The proximity of such different landscapes -the mountain, the valleys blanketed in vegetable gardens and the sea- is, without a doubt, one of the greatest attractions of this coastline which combine all the appeal of the Mediterranean landscape and culture. Residential areas, marinas, golf clubs, entertainment centres, nightclubs and many more tourist attractions have been built around and now coexist within the peaceful ambience of country villages, which have astonishingly conserved their traditional town centres. Summer beach holidays and all the appeal that this can offer along this stretch of the Mediterranean is not, however, the only attractions offered by the Costa del Sol: you will have the chance to uncover the most genuine, authentic features of the Andalusian culture very close by. In addition to the folkloric displays in the tourist centres, you can also experience the lively and popular celebrations. The fiestas, Easter parades, song contests and the bull runs without a doubt claim first place on the list of recommendations for travellers who want to see beyond what first meets the eye. Tasting country wines in the intimate cellars of yore and having some traditional fried fish (cooked to perfection by the local folk) are some of the temptations that will seduce all visitors, specially those that prefer the wonders of local gastronomy over the ever-present international fare.
Within walking distance are 2 local restaurants with bars, Opencor supermarket (opens 365 days per year 10am til 2am), 24 hour pharmacy, Hotel Artola, Puerto Cabopino which has several restaurants and bars. Boat and Fishing trips can be arranged from Cabopino and Puerto Banus. There are nearby waterparks (Fuengirola and Torremolinos), zoo's, horseriding and amusement park (Tivoli World). Numerous great restaurants and other facilities within short driving distance. Carib Playa Beach is 7 minutes walk and is a naturally beautiful beach which leads in Cabopino beach, both have great beach bars. You will find many activities for all to enjoy: this includes peace & quiet, an area for naturists, and a family beach with rental boats, pedaloes, jet skis, windsurfing, banada rides etc...
The famous golden mile of Marbella beach is 15 minutes drive away whilst in the other direction approx 10 mins drive the beach at La Cala is also very popular.

I stayed here with my wife and our 3 teenage children for 2 weeks in august 2013.
We arrived to a nice gated private development with lovely grounds ( all Landscaped ), it really did look nice, opened door to apartment and found this also to be very clean and spacious, couldnt fault the apartment except the owner should maybe think about changing the the 3 piece suite as the chairs are horrendous soooo uncomfortable apart from the settee which was ok.
Aircon worked great as did everything else in the apartment,but could do with a more comfortable table & chairs on balcony aswell, considering we paid £1700 for the 2 weeks and didnt feel that comfortable sitting at the cheap white plastic one, dont get me wrong, it was ok, but not great!, but the rest of the apartment was tip top condition and couldnt really fault it, pool area very very clean and picturesque nice lawned area and flowers everywhere, but no sunbeds supplied around pool area and ones supplied by owner that are in the apartment do the job but so not great!, it also says in the write up for this apartment that a car is not needed, this is most definately not the case, if you like a lot of walking up hills to the bus stop then thats fine, but if your a bit elderly or have a slight disability, or less mobile in any way, then your going have trouble here getting about UNLESS you hire a car which we did, because otherwise your trapped and cant get around to see the lovely parts of the costa del sol, this apartment is on a private residential development and to be honest there is not really alot here, it is not in a resort so if your looking for an apartment in a central location with lots of shops and bars & restaurants to visit then this is not the place to go, however if you want a really quiet area with just a few restaurants and have a car then youll be ok
There is a lovely German restaurant just a small walk up the rd which sells great food (big Portions) for a very reasonable price, also a nice little English bar a bit further up called the Orange Tree, nick the owner is a nice welcoming fella,he also provides free wifi
Cabapino beach is just a 5 min drive away and a very nice beach it is too! La Cala da Mijas beach is also a lovely beach, we prefered this 1 because it was less crowded, it had a few nice beach bars selling breakfast lunch & Dinner sunbeds and fixed parasols, so everything you need for a perfect day out at the beach
Overall a nice holiday, nice apartment, Great beaches , NIce weather. BUT BOY are we glad we hired a car!!!!

"Outstanding apartment in a wonderful complex with pool"
Large and comfortable apartment with all facilities and a wonderful large balcony for summer living. Grounds are lush and beautifully planted and, though the pool serves multiple apartments, this was never crowded. Easy walking to numerous crowded or deserted beaches, restaurants of all descriptions, and a short drive to the center of Marbella and Fuengirola. Straightforward drive for a day at the Alhambra outside Granada, and to other cities such as Seville and Jerez.
