Our opinion on the Artola and Cabopino Beaches

Adresse of the Artola and Cabopino Beaches : Puerto de Cabopino 29604 Marbella

North of Marbella and near Fuengirola, Cabopino beach and Artola beach are among the most beautiful beaches of the Marbella / Malaga district and without a doubt among the most wild provided you move away from the port of Cabopino.

Two really different areas. The first around the Cabopino harbor (Puerto Cabopino) is classic : several chiringuitos with mattress rental and summer monitoring. We are on a classic beach near the amenities. During summer, nautical activities are proposed. Pleasant area but uncrowded … More south (500 meters from the port), the beach becomes totaly wild and undeveloped. It is bordered by the Artola dunes (very well laid out, a nice promenade on the dunes on a wooden path allows to walk easily). The beach becomes naturist fast (even if we find textils) and gay according to the zones. Moderate attendance in the southern part (you have to walk), we can easily find a calm place.

Provided you do not have to be modest, this beach of Artola is very pleasant and one of the wildest of the Costa del Sol. A favorite !

Parking is paying for the port side but free at the dunes (big parking quickly full in summer, especially the weekend).

To get to this beach comming from Marbella, take the A7 in direction of Malaga. Take Cabopino exit. At the roundabout take the first right. Parking on the right.
