Food Scene

Fun chilled party atmosphere with reggae music. My favorite place for a drink - I love to stop by after a walk on the boardwalk to enjoy a mojito with my feet in the sand. Accessed from the boardwalk or from the highway (on the beach side of McDonalds).

My favorite beach restaurant in Calahonda. Great for drinks, lunch, and dinner on the beach. Delicious extremely fresh seafood grilled on charcoal. Try a whole fish. Good for families and singles alike. Parents can relax while the kids play in the sand. Live music on Saturdays and Flamenco on Sunday night. You can also rent lounge chairs and parasols.

Authentic Thai food from Thai chefs and an owner/manager who cares about his customers. My favorite Asian restaurant in the area - just opened in April 2016.

Marbella is famous for its gorgeous beaches. Walk, bike, or Segway on the Paseo Maritimo, a 12-km long beach walkway that runs between Marbella town and Puerto Banus. The five star hotels are on this stretch - Marbella Beach Club and Puente Romano. Also worth seeing is the Marbella historic center, though it is a bit touristy.

From here you can walk on the iconic mountain behind Marbella, La Concha, with great sea views. This is serious hiking with lots of boulders and requires hiking boots.

Observe a wide variety of animals in a stunning natural setting that is designed to slowly reveal each new habitat during the course of your journey - wonderful for kids of any age as well as adults. The only place worth seeing in Fuengirola (which is otherwise not very pretty).

Shopping

Home to a giant department store, El Corte Ingles, with a large selection of spanish and international brands, from budget to luxury. Easy to spend an entire day there. Marinus Banus is across the street, a shopping mall with Zara, H&M, Massimo Dutti, and others. Many other boutiques scattered nearby. Luxury designer brands are located in the marina, which is also worth seeing for the impressive yachts.
