On the beach
Puebla Aida is well served for beaches. The stretch along the Costa del Sol between Marbella and Málaga offers something for everyone.
Previously, a tiny fishing village, Fuengirola has become a vibrant metropolis. One of the Fuengirola’s main attractions is its seven kilometres (five miles) of sandy beaches, stretching from the Sohail Castle to the west, which offers free parking, and Torreblanca to the east. Featuring a comprehensive selection of shops, bars and restaurants, this beach is a popular attraction with something for everyone.
Ideal for its proximity to Puebla Aida, approximately four kilometres, La Cala de Mijas is one of the original fishing villages situated on the Costa del Sol.
Located between the towns of Fuengirola and Marbella, La Cala de Mijas is a popular village with many good restaurants, shops, chemist and features a lovely, wide, open beach. The beach has recently undergone a transformation and now benefits from some good restaurants which provide sun-loungers and shade. One of our favourites is El Torreon which enjoys a great setting near the Moorish tower and serves good, fresh food at sensible prices.
Located on one of Marbella’s finest beaches just a ten minute drive east from central Marbella and 20 minutes from Puebla Aida, Nikki Beach is a party beach. A worldwide luxury beach club phenomenon, Nikki Beach prides itself on offering everything cool, sexy and glamorous about spending the day or night at the beach.
Oversized sunbeds, champagne cocktails, global cuisine and dancing to the all-day grooves of Nikki Beach’s world-class DJs and live musicians are the order of the day. A place to see and be seen, there’s never a dull moment.
The 27 kilometres (17 miles) of coastline within the limits of Marbella is divided into twenty-four beaches with different features. Amongst the various notable beaches are Artola beach, situated in the protected area of the Dunas de Artola, and Cabopino, one of the few nudist beaches in Marbella, near the port of Cabopino. The beaches of Venus and La Fontanilla are centrally located and very popular, and those of Puerto Banús (a showcase for the rich and richer) and San Pedro Alcántara have been awarded the blue flag of the Foundation for Environmental Education for compliance with its standards of water quality, safety, general services and environmental management.
