Cabopino is the first urbanization within Marbella’s city limits. It has one of Spain´s most beautiful marinas, small but stylish with several Spanish and international restaurants, but not so well known to the general public, because it cannot be seen from the road. Cabopino is a brilliant concept in theory. The idea being that in the 60’s when it was built was to get private boats in line with buying apartments. Therefore once the apartment has been purchased you are given a birth. At the same time they built a very small area where they put in various restaurants including Da Bruno a Cabopino and renowned steak restaurant Alberts in Cabopino Port. They have also got a beautiful beach to the right of the marina with lovely golden sands.
It is without a doubt one of the best sandy beaches in the region. There are no rocks on the beach or in the Mediterranean and therefore ideal for families with young children, as the water is very shallow. Lots of sun loungers and parasols are offered by the Cabopino beach restaurants.
Other beach activities throughout the summer months include paddle boats, windsurfing and boat boards, dolphin trips, volleyball and para-gliding.
On the other side of the road you will also find a wonderfully maintained 18 hole course, Cabopino Golf, that enjoys panoramic views of the sea and the marina.
For those who enjoy naturalism, there is a nudist beach Playa Artola which also known as Playa de Las Dunas. This has given the area a cutting edge over other coastal areas nearby which do not offer the same conveniences for those who wish to bare all!
Cabopino can be termed as a ‘boutique’ resort, There are no hotels there but many within a short distance such as The Grandfield Oasis, just over 3km, the Four Star Vime La Reserva de Marbella, right on Cabopino Golf’s doorstep, the Marbella Beach resort just under 2kms away and the Five Star Don Carlos Hotel also within the area.
For education there is the English International School for primary and secondary students in Elvira a few kilometres away.
It is only a 40 minute drive from Malaga Airport and 15 minutes from the centre of Marbella.
