Cabopino

Take me to: Cabopino Apartments

Cabopino is a quiet Marina situated between Marbella and Benalmadena. This is a much smaller port than Benalmadena with its own truly Mediterranean style. It is often overlooked by the tourists mainly because it is not visible from the road, but like all the costal Marinas it has some very good restaurants and bars, as well as a lovely beach and golf courses. 

Albert's on the Port is the best known restaurant, especially for its steaks. Harbour Lights is a friendly family restaurant also worth visiting.

Just inland Cabopino Golf Course is very scenic with views to the mountains and the sea.

There are popular beaches to the either side of the port where some good beach bars are located. To the west of Cabopino is the clothing optional beach of Playa Artola or Playa de la Dunas-Carib. This is the only section of  beach in Marbella that is backed by extensive natural dunes and the only section of coast that is not urbanised.
