Playa el Faro


Playa el Faro is situated just to the west of Marbella Port and enclised by the breakwater. It is a very small stretch of beach only 200m X 30m and is very sheltered.

 

This is a very busy beach because of it´s convenient location in the centre of Marbella, close to a number of hotels and not far from the Old Town. The number of facilities surrounding this beach make it a very desirable location. This beach is very popular with families as it has a large children's play area (unsupervised) and the sea is shallow and sheltered providing calm waves and a safer environment for younger children.

It has all the usual facilities such as WC´s, showers, parasols and sun loungers.

There is parking, but it can be very busy at peak times, especially during summer. There are life guards monitoring this beach during summer. Water sports are available.

Playa La Venus is the next Marbella beach to the east.
