gardens as well as bars, cafés and restaurants that encourage you to watch the world go by.
“blue flag” beach stretches for 1650 metres between the Puerto de la Duquesa and the
Rio Manilva and includes the entire frontage of the town of Sabinillas. It is also a “working beach” as local fishermen still

first aiders are available to offer help where and when required.

beach for tourist and locals alike. The café and restaurants that face the beach are varied and plentiful, offering a
range of cuisine that should meet the needs of all.
The local fishermen launch small boats from the beach, returning at night, or day, with their catch. You will often see restaurateurs waiting for
their return to select the day’s menu.
