With just a few gaps to complete, this is a godsend, from La Cala to Puerto Cabapino, we now find that we don't require a hire car, we simply book return airport transfers for £70.00 and walk everywhere, we haven't even needed to hail a cab or hop on a bus.

The beach itself is stony but the water is clear and clean and it doesn’t get as busy as some of the other beaches in the area as it seems to be used mostly by locals.

There is a very pleasant boardwalk for about 5 miles but beware, there is one section where you have to clamber over rocks for about 50 metres if you want to walk the full length of it. Such a shame as it is a great asset.

A lovely stroll along the beach has been made easier by the new board walk. well used throughout the day by walkers, joggers and cyclists. Just a shame it didn't extend further in both directions.

Really nice to walk along well built and maintained board walk right along beach edge. Bars and restaurants every 15 mins or so. Go all the way to cala de mijas and make a day of it. Walk one way. Bus the other.

Calm waters and very safe, shallow descent to the beach. A couple of cheap beach bars around, Artola hotel is very nice.
