What not to miss in captivating Cabopino

There’s a certain ring to the name Cabopino; a ring that implies fun, indulgence and all things exotic. As it happens, this is exactly the kind of experience you can expect to have here at Cabopino beach and port, just a five-minute drive from Calahonda.

Cabopino is a tranquil Marina found just to the west of Calahonda, and it exudes a Mediterranean vibe that entices locals, tourists and expats all year round. It can’t be seen from the main road, which makes it a little easier to miss if you’re not local to the area, but it is well putting on your map. We think one visit will turn into countless visits, especially if you’ve made the wise decision to purchase a apartment In Costa Del Sol!

Just as you will find a stone’s throw away in Calahonda, Cabopino has some great places to while away a few hours or satiate a hungry stomach.  For example:

Cabopino Beach

This beach is truly beautiful… as beautiful as you’d expect a beach selected for the location of a TV soap to be! Cabopino beach was the one – of all those on the Costa del Sol – chosen for scenes in the soap Eldorado. The show may not have been a success but the beach certainly is!

Cabopino beach is the kind of place it would be very difficult to get bored of. Lounge with a cocktail and a captivating book on one of the comfortable sunbeds, pop into a chiringuito for some delicious lunch or throw yourself in at the deep end with one of the watersports on offer. Once the adrenaline runs dry, you can relax at one of the many fun beach bars with a well-deserved drink.

If it’s ultimately a serene, quiet beach experience you’re looking for, you can head to the Playa Artola beach, just to the west of Cabopino Port. As this area has not been built up, it’s a little quieter, exceptionally clean, and there are a lot of natural sand dunes to add to the experience.
