La Cala de Mijas Beach

Only 15 mins by car.

La Cala de Mijas is a beautiful little town with a very safe and relaxed atmosphere. Lovely clean family beaches with lots of little shops and bars. It happens to be a great spot for Kite Surfing as well.

The Beach is kept really well by the council and, if you are feeling energetic, the boardwalk extends for about 3.5km.

There are plenty of local bars and eateries for all tastes within a 5 min. walk from the beach. 

We recommend having a Wine or Gin & Tonic tasting at Pura Cepa and lunch or dinner at Pura Sangre.

Also, for the meat lovers, Los Tres Grill is a great Grill restaurant!

And, probably the best Indian restaurant of the entire area is Sai.  

Guests at Finca Mil Estrellas really enjoy this beach, as it’s nearby and has everything you need.

Playa Carvajal Benalmadena

Only 30 mins by car

Playa Sendero Carvajal in Benalmadena is a small gem, hidden between 2 big rocks. The beach has 2 Chiringuito’s (beach bars) which are La Cubana and El Kalifato.

About La Cubana: (click for driving directions)

La Cubana is by far the best beach bar in Fuengirola/Benalmadena. Laid back atmosphare, but still trendy and very Caribian. Liked the colours and the idea of rustic and cozy old sofas on the sand. Great home made food, shakes and cocktails. Experience this little Carribean gem with a Mojito, while enjoying the music and sunset.

About El Kalifato(click for driving directions)

El Kalifato is a typical Spanish chiringuito where you will have an amazing Fish & Seafood lunch. The terrace is very laidback with some lovely trees providing shade in Summer. The prices are very reasonable and the meals are outstanding. El Kalifato has its own beds at the beach which you can rent, so that you can enjoy the entire day here.
