No holiday is complete without a day at the beach…

Relax on the fine sandy beaches next to blue clear waters, surrounded by excellent bars and restaurants. There are beautiful beaches just five minutes drive from the estate. The beach to the left of the marina going towards Torremolinos is a lovely sandy beach with a great promenade and a host of restaurants and bars to enjoy a good lunch.

Sun loungers are available to hire for a nominal charge. Chinese massages are available from passing masseuses and we thoroughly recommend them as they are excellent value for money as you pay nothing like the cost of a decent massage in a salon back home!

With a day on the beach to take in the sun, enjoy the sea, throw in a good lunch and an afternoon massage, you will feel totally re-energised. A walk back through the port with the many splendid designer shops makes for a great relaxing day.

Local Markets, Costa del Sol

The surrounding areas are full of enchanting markets and there are many great entertaining day trip experiences to be had.

For shopping experiences you can visit the marina port, the designer boutiques at Factory Malaga near the Airport, or a walk around Arroyo de la Miel in the town centre or a trip down to Torremolinos or Malaga. Another must for shopaholics is Corté Inglis, a large department store and the Miramar Shopping Centre at Fuengirola (pictured above) with more than 150 shops, a dozen luxury cinemas, and an inviting food court.
