Take a stroll along the carihuela, there's always something happening here. Fishermen fishing, joggers jogging , sunbathers (you get the idea!) It's one of hose places where it's great just to sit and watch the world go by over a coffee or a beer. Beach goers are well catered for too with beds and parasols for hire , the sea... More

Playa La Carihuela is an excellent sandy beach, ideal for sunbathing. There were a few shingles on entering the sea but only a minor inconvenience. The sea was lovely for the first week but much colder (19 degrees) the second week following a storm.

Nice stretch of beach to Benalmadena marina. Get there at dawn maybe on an early morning run and see the wonderful sunrises out of the sea. Good promenade with endless places to eat and drink and no traffic.

We both use mobility scooters, hired locally and the promenade which is flat and level goes right through La Carihuela. There are a lot of interesting shops and cafes selling all manner of goods. One can turnoff the prom into Calle Bulto which has beautiful apartments above more shops. Halfway down this street is La Tahona - a bakery with... More

The first time I went to the Carihuela, about twenty years ago, the promenade was still unfinished, and it was all a bit cheesy, except for the old villagey parts behind the beach. It still has a few cheesy elements, after all, it's Blackpool on the costa, but it's much improved. The beach is well manicured, and loungers are well... More
