Cabopino, Costa del Sol

Stylish resort far from the madding crowd

Stylish harbour is the centrepiece of this stunning resort in the heart of Costa del Sol

Cabopino did not feature on the map in the guide book I purchased before jetting to Spain and it is just a pin-prick on the big road map I picked up at the car hire at Malaga Airport.

It is often overlooked, according to the local website, by tourists as it is not visible from the main road, yet it is there in the heart of the Costa del Sol, a mecca for sun-seeking British tourists.

It neighbours Calahonda, well-known to tourists around the British Isles, but it is light years away from that tired looking resort which has undoubtedly seen better days.

They are, however, joined by a long beach and both border the busy N340 road which swings around the coastline between Malaga and Marbella.

We took the small slip road, passed a Shell garage on our left and a stylish Italian restaurant and take-away on our right and, bearing left over a motorway bridge, saw the sea.

One more roundabout, down a 200 yard stretch of road and there was a sign for the beach car park on our right. A small charge is levied, by the way.

A short walk and a vast expanse of wonderful beach was in front of us. To our left were a number of coastline cafes and bars and, in front of us, kite and wind surfers. That looked wonderful, but those days are gone for me.

A walk along the beach in the onshore wine was inviting. We went right and strolled in the surf along the naturist beach – the wind meant there was nobody there – with the stunning view of the Sierra Blanca mountains against the clear, blue sky. The surf was invigorating and the view memorable.

The sand was of great quality and the sound of the surf ripping into the sand on the beach comforting.

Locals told us that this is the only beach in Marbella which is backed by extensive natural dunes and the only section, according to the local website, which is not urbanised.

On our return we passed the beach cafes and headed towards the small harbour.

Certainly, it is a lot smaller and not as plush as Puerto Banus near Marbella, but there were sleek, expensive yachts moored at the quayside.

Children (and adults) were amazed at the size of the fish swimming just blow them and between the boats.

There were Porsche, BMW and Mercedes cars but not Ferrari, Rolls-Royce and Bentley vehicles associated with Puerto Banus.

The choice of eating places is enough to satisfy. Many are well-recommended. One is Alberts Bar and Grill which is popular and has regular entertainment, the Mediterranean was busy and there are others. There is a well-stocked shop.

We visited in mid-April and some of the units were not open but Indian food lovers as well as Irish pub fans are catered for here.

We climbed the stairs heading back to the car and spotted Los Javieres Taberna. It is in a sun-kissed square and it was sheltered from the west wind.

It looked inviting and we stopped off for a coffee and beer. It’s family run, a bonus, and they were most accommodating and they boast home-made food by Mama Maria. People at tables around us obviously appreciated her cooking.

We strolled back to the car and real estate is available to buy. The resort is clean, tidy and has style. It is quietly classy and there are golf courses nearby with Cabopino Golf being very scenic with views of the mountains and the sea.

We felt at home here but it was time to move on. If we come back to the Costa del Sol then we would certainly consider staying in this resort. Buying? No, there are other places to visit.
