Warren Corbett

Nice area. Not overly developed so retains a Spanish feel rather than being too touristy.

Manilva

Manilva is located at the southernwestern edge of the province of Malaga, on the border with Cadiz. The town is split into two parts, the seaside resort and the charming white-washed, sleepy village, located just 3 kilometres up a hill from the coast.

The village itself, which is the original Manilva, is bordered by a wonderful vineyard of Moscatel Grapes, which are mainly used for making sweet wine.

Down on the coastal resort, Manilva has managed to retain its small village mentality, opting out of excessive development.

The urbanisations of Sabinillas, Puerto Duquesa and Estepona are all located within a few minutes drive. Malaga is 97 kilometres away, with Gibraltar airport being closer.

History
The town has a fascinating history dating back to Roman times; still today there are some remarkably well-preserved Roman sulphur baths. However if you want to take advantage of these health-giving waters you will have to be prepared to dive into a subterranean cavern and to put up with the smell of sulphur on your swimwear!

Also in the village is an interesting 17th century church and at the foot of the village there are two remaining pieces of aqueduct, in good condtion.

Beaches
The beaches in the Manilva area are some of the best on the Costa del Sol, and remain fairly uncrowded during the summer months.

Golf
Being located on the Costa del Golf, means that Manilva is located within an area with a high density of golf courses, including: La Duquesa, Alemnara in Sotogrande, Alcaidesa Golf in San Roque, Doña Julia in Casares and El Paraiso in Estepona, to name just a few. Manilva offers a perfect central location to reach the many golf courses on the Costa del Sol

Eating out
The area offers a good selection of beach-side restaurants and options located in the urbanisation and commercial area. There are a few bars, but no discos and late night-bars.

Climate
Manilva like the rest of its counterparts on the Costa del Sol enjoys a sub-tropical Mediterranean climate, with hot summers and warm winters. Cooling breezes from the sea make the summer heat manageable, temperatures are an average of 32 ºC in summer.

The postcode is Manilva but the apartment is actually situated next to Puerto de la Duquesa which is a wonderful Marina.

Manilva review

Plenty of restaurants and nice beach. A little more expensive then some of the obvious tourist spots but you get the plus side of it not being too busy.


Costa del Sol reviews

Nice beach, never busy but at the time ALOT of jellyfish so my children wouldn’t swim in it at all.

Very traditional place. A car is essential here as transport is limited


Costa del Sol reviews

Lovely restaurant on the sea front near the house ... 10 minutes walk down to it. A bit more back

Manilva review

Probably one of the most authentic villages along the coast, with great places to eat, great beaches and away from the madness of the "resorts"

Manilva review

Sabinillas is a small cosy village for those who like it more quiet. Recommand to walk to Duquesa Port via the boulevard for a nice harbour area.
