Library
“Very nice white village on Costa del Sol, worth visiting to see how locals live in towns like this. This picturesque village is located 1,280ft above sea level. Walk through the narrow streets to the upper terraces. Visit tiny Chapel of Our Lady of the Rock. Beautiful views and nice places to have lunch or dinner. Lots of cute souvenir shops. There is a private car park available on the side of the village, as it is a little difficult to leave your car on the streets. ”

Restaurant
“JUST EAST OF MARBELLA Trocadero Arena is an upscale beach restaurant and bar. It is located on the beach just across the A-7 from us. Drive down to the A-7, cross the bridge and take a left in the roundabout. They offer on-site parking. Playa de Río Real, Carretera N340, km 186, 29600 Marbella www.grupotrocadero.com Phone: +34 952 86 55 79 My friends brag about their food. I do not. But it has a terrific ambience, built and themed like an African hunting lodge. Trocadero Arena offers sun beds, a great lounge area for drinks and - for a beach restaurant - slightly (bot only slightly) more formal dining. The beach is unfortunately somewhat more rocky than the best ones in Marbella. ”
