Manilva is the first town in the province of Málaga along the western coast, bordering the province of Cádiz and immersed in the Costa del Sol. The economy of Manilva was based largely on agriculture and fishing although more and more on tourism, thanks to its interior landscape which is added, in its closest environment, one of the largest concentrations of golf courses in quality of the world.

A short walk west of Puerto de la Duquesa is the small fishing village of Castillo de la Duquesa, from which the marina gets its name. The castle built in 1767 can be visited and is often used for local exhibitions. Nearby are Roman ruins without digging. In the village there are a number of bars and restaurants.

Finally, we can enjoy these magnificent beaches;


It refers to a series of four beaches locally called Playa de las Arenas, Cala Sardina, Playa del Negro and Playa de los Toros in a straight and flat part of the coast that totals 10 km, from Punta de la Chullera in the west to La Duchess Marina in the east. The beaches are generally very quiet. The A7 coast road runs parallel to the beach, one block away, and the roads leading to the beach offer a series of access points and parking areas. The beach has an average width of 60m, gently sloping and supported by the heather in some places, with few beach bars with sunbeds, as well as showers and lifeguard points. The beach is so expansive that in areas further away from the access points, it is very quiet - even on summer weekends. The beach is cleaned in summer. The flora and fauna of this stretch of coast is protected as an ecological reserve under the 2003/8 law.


 Playa del Castillo is the name of the existing ruined fortress in the town. A small but interesting fishing village, called El Castillo de la Duquesa. The castle is used for occasional municipal exhibitions and a couple of adjacent fenced areas partially support Roman excavated ruins. To the east of Castillo, and surrounded by blocks of modern apartments, is Puerto de la Duquesa marina. The beach runs to the harbor wall. This beach has beach bars with sun loungers, showers and lifeguard spots. The closest chiringuito to Duquesa is called Chiringuito La Gaviotas. Playa de la Chullera is to the west and Playa del Castillo and Playa de las Gaviotas to the east.


 Playa Sabinillas is another long straight beach, 2 km long and about 40 m wide, east of Puerto de la Duquesa to the Manilva River. The western end of the beach is also called Colonia Beach after the summer school of the same name, has chiringuitos with loungers, along with showers and watchtowers and lifeguard spots. Behind the promenade there are many bars, restaurants, corner shops and kiosks. The beach is frequented by the local residents of Manilva and San Luis de Sabinillas - you will find very few hotels or international tourists in this part of the coast. Sabinillas is the original fishing village for the town of Manilva. This beach is very clean in the summer, and parking is usually available in the streets of the village. This beach has been awarded a Blue Flag by the European Union for its high level of cleanliness and excellent facilities.

Clean with great location

  • 4 of 5

Probably the best location around in Duquesa, 500 yards from the port and a stone throw away from the beach. Very clean and well equipped apartment, take some plastic cups if you have kids as the floor is marble and you can’t bring class to the pool. We would definitely return again.

Ideal location in nice complex

  • 4 of 5

Clean and spacious. Quite well equipped. We would have liked cool bag to take to the beach and would have liked change of towels/bedding during a ten day stay however, this would not deter us from revisiting or recommending. (I washed towels myself during our stay) Other concern was security locks on doors due to being ground floor level which we considered required attention. Overall nice property and location near to all amenities and the beach.

  • 5 of 5

Gracias Eugenia por estos días. Has estado atent en todo momento y dispuesta a todo!. Tu apartamento es muy cómodo, bien ubicado, fessco, tranquilo y suficientemente equipado. Las camas son cómodas. El sofá cama donde han dormido los niños se hace en un plis. No hemos utilizado la mesa del salón: el la terraza hemos hecho todas las comidas! La ubicación del apartamento es ideal y nos ha ayudado a estar cómodos. Da la sombra a la hora de comida y desayuno. La Cocina con todo lo necesario. Cerca está el puerto con amplia oferta hostelera (comida asiática, Argentina, italiana...) el pueblo de Sabinillas y Castillo de la Duquesa, con un paseo marítimo para disfrutar largos paseos. La plaza de La Colonia, a 5 minutos, ideal para estar largas jornadas con los niños. Él definitiva, un buen apartamento para disfrutar de unas buenas vacaciones en familia tranquilas y relajadas pero en un lugar accesible a todos los servicios. Gracias, Eugenia.

Lovely apartment

  • 5 of 5

I spent a couple of days with my family during Easter, and we had an amazing time. The apartment is very bright and clean and it is very well equipped for 4 people. It has beautiful views, direct access to the pool and is located in a very familiar and quiet area. It is nearby the beach, the port, and many restaurants. Both owners and workers are very friendly. I highly recommend it, we will be back for sure.

It is one of the most important protected areas in Andalusia, occupying part of the province of Cádiz and Málaga, reaching the Strait of Gibraltar. The area has a lot of water, streams, rivers and reservoirs; In addition to the humidity that confers the proximity to the sea, which causes many fog forests to form in the narrow valleys.

There are many beautiful towns within the park, for example Castellar de la Frontera, which are actually two towns, since in the seventies the old village location on the top of the mountain, inside a medieval walled enclosure, the one known as Castellar Viejo or El Castillo, was abandoned and almost all the neighbors moved to Castellar Nuevo, a newly built town a few kilometers from the old one. This population change was due to the impossibility of growth of the old village due to the orographic difficulties of the land and, therefore, the difficulty in social progress. The interior of the town is very well preserved, small whitewashed streets, with houses adorned with typical Andalusian pots that today only live the tourists who rent them, since most are houses dedicated to rural tourism.


Selwo Aventura is a theme park and zoo located just minutes from the apartment.

This park occupies an area of ​​100 hectares and exhibits more than 2000 animals of different species from all continents.

It offers leisure activities such as hanging bridges, dromedary rides, zip line and archery.


 The Strait, the bridge to Africa, is located a few kilometers from the Costa del Sol, so a tour to the area of ​​one or two days can be done comfortably.


The Costa del Sol, especially the eastern part, is very close to Campo de Gibraltar. For what it's worth at least a day to go to the Rock of Gibraltar


Puerto José Banús, better known as Puerto Banús, is a luxury marina, located in the Nueva Andalucía urbanization, between Marbella and San Pedro Alcántara, in the province of Málaga.

This tourist enclave has become, since it was inaugurated in May 1970, in one of the largest entertainment centers of the Costa del Sol, reaching fame and international prestige. He has obtained the Gold Medal for Tourism Merit in 1975 and the Gold Mercury International for his action in favor of the development of economic, cultural and social cooperation.

On the streets of the Port there are exclusive fashion brands such as Louis Vuitton, Dior, Gucci, Versace, Bvlgari, or Dolce & Gabbana


Today, Sotogrande has 5 important golf courses, among which the Valderrama Golf Course, home of the 1997 Ryder Cup, is considered one of the best courses in Europe. 4 Sotogrande also hosts polo and sailing competitions. Sotogrande is one of the most important polo practice venues in the world, both for the quality of the facilities available and for the level of international competitions6 developed by the different polo clubs in the area. Among these competitions highlights the International Polo Tournament, organized for more than 40 years by Santa María Polo Club.


A few kilometers from the Costa del Sol in Malaga visitors can discover the most traditional villages of the province that have maintained throughout the centuries some traces typical of the Muslim period of Al-Andalus; small white jewels located in a magnificent geography, which are undoubtedly worth discovering: The villages of white houses, many of them with remains of castles or fortresses, located in mountain areas and with a very different atmosphere.

As a common element, the name of the set of municipalities that form this route results from the dazzling white of the whitewashed houses, a legacy of Arab-Mediterranean civil architecture. It is easy to recognize the Muslim heritage in the narrow winding streets and steep slopes, which show extraordinary corners at every step.

In the villages, each space can be a pleasure for the senses, walking through the windows and balconies full of flowers that contrast with the white walls, along with a temperate climate that keeps the hills and fields green. Another common denominator is the character of its people, open and hospitable, and the flow of life, with squares and corners where the elderly sit down to spend their time; bars and taverns and a simple and authentic kitchen.

Here we mention only some of the towns of the province of Malaga, as the complete Route of the white villages extends to the province of Cádiz; A route that each visitor can prepare and determine according to their taste and time. The route of the white villages requires imagination and determination on the part of the traveler.
