Playa El Pinillo is the next Marbella beach to the east.

Playa Los Monteros

Los Monteros beach is situated next to Hotel Los Monteros and the Urbanization Bahia de Marbella part of Urbanizacion Los Monteros. It is a large beach; 2km long but quite narrow in places.

Playa Los Monteros  is  a relatively quiet beach; it is a fine sandy and pebble free beach and the sea shore is quite shallow.

This is the area where you are most likely to spot Antonio Banderas, as he has a summer villa on the front here. 

Los Monteros beach has all the services and facilities you would expect: there are a number of restaurants and beach bars, other facilities include WC´s and First Aid; life guards are present in summer in certain location near the beach bars.  

At the western limit near to the River Rio Real is Restaurant Palm Beach, this section of beach is also called Playa Realejo. In the cental section at the end of Avenida del Poniente, where the beach is also called Playa Adelfa  is the gaudy deep red brick and tiled El Mangaleta restaurant  Both restaurants or the beach around them can be conveniently accessed by parking in the urbanisation which remains surprisingly quiet even in the summer. At the east limit is the upmarket La Cabane Beach Club which is associated with the Hotel los Monteros

The boundary in the east is the interestingly named stream  Arroyo de Siete Revueltas.

El Alicate or Pinomar is the next Marbella beach to the east.
