Marbella and Puerto Banus are the playgrounds of the rich and famous, famous for shopping, fine dining and lively bars to fit all tastes. The harbour of Puerto Banus is absolutely full of luxury yachts and fast cars. The restaurants along this strip are worth a visit, a bit pricey, but the cuisine is outstanding. Why not spend an enjoyable evening taking in the local culture?
Shopping is also excellent, El Corte Ingles is a modern department store, with designer goods and essentials. This is in Puerto Banus. There is also a El Corte Ingles in Fuengirola which is a short drive away from the apartment.
During the High Season Puerto Banus holds a lovely outdoor market, this is open until late and worth a visit.
When in Marbella please visit Orange Square, where you will find an assortment of restaurants and bars, meander around this area to find lovely shops.
Gibraltar is approximately 90KM drive away, worth visiting for Duty Free goods. Please check with our managing agent for the opening times if shopping in the High Street. In Gibraltar you will find a Marks & Spencer and British Home Stores, as well as many more popular High Street Chains. Perfume shops are a speciality. Morrisons is open Sunday until 5 PM and each weekday evening until 10 PM.
When visiting Gibraltar why not take the cable car to the top of the rock or a local mini-bus tour, when you arrive at the top of the famous rock you will see the apes, but be careful not to open your handbag for a snack, as they move pretty quickly and are quite happy to hitch a ride or pinch your snack!
The Sierra Nevada is famous for skiing during the Winter Season, and is a nice drive from the apartment, taking approximately two and a half hours.
Whilst in Marbella visit the Golden Mile and see for yourself how the rich and famous live.
Whilst visiting the Costa del Sol we highly recommend that you sample the local tapas, and beverages.
Seville is approximately a 3 hour drive from La Cala de Mijas and is a must-visit if at all possible. There is excellent public transport from La Cala in all directions and to everywhere you might like to visit (including Seville).

The restaurants are reasonably priced and the ambiance is lovely. Recommended.
