Manilva is one of those places where you can feel the peaceful atmosphere, where you can enjoy your holidays without all the commotion you get in the other more popular destinations on the Costa del Sol; and due to its proximity to Marbella and Puerto Banus, it’s a very recommendable option, although an owned or hired vehicle is more than recommendable to travel around.
In Manilva, it’s worth highlighting the following beaches:
This beach, surrounded by several coves, has clean crystal-clear waters and is ideal for those who prefer to escape far away from the large crowds of the inner city. It’s also a natural and nudist beach.
Access to La Chullera beach is not easy, which makes it a kind of private paradise. It has showers, rubbish bins, beach bars to eat and drink, sunbeds to hire and public toilets.
A cove-shaped beach near La Duquesa in Manilva. It can be easily accessed on foot and has showers, sunbeds to hire and rubbish bins.
This beach is located in the Duquesa port. It has parking, showers, jet-ski rental, etc. It extends from the beach before, better known as the “Sardine cove”.
This beach is also situated in La Duquesa and can be accessed easily. It’s a long beach of scenic interest with sand that’s mainly made up of gravel. The name of ‘Los Toros’ (the bulls) was given to this beach because in the past this was a place where the cattle used to pass through on their way to Estepona.
