There are lots of beaches that can be reached from Molino as a day trip.
The beaches on the Mediterranean Coast are easy to get to, but in summer are often crowded. They do, however, have warm water and are good for children because lots of them have playgrounds and other activities on the beach. Some are near the famous Puerto Banus and all the glamour attached to the yachts and rich folk who frequent this area.
There are many restaurants along the coast line offering fresh, local fish and other classic Spanish dishes such as paella or tapas.
The other advantage of the Mediterranean coast is that you can combine it with a shopping trip to the big stores in, for example, Marbella or with playing a round of golf. Click here for more information on shopping and on golf.
The best beaches along the Mediterranean coast in our opinion are Elviria and Cabo Pino and can be reached in just over an hour – Reception will give you directions.
If you are willing to drive a bit further, the Atlantic coast is outstanding. There are beautiful long beaches with white sand and very clean, warm water. They are very unspoilt and are definitely the locals’ beaches of choice. The area is only ever crowded in late July and August. There are lots of local restaurants offering fresh, local fish and also ‘chiringuitos’, beach bars – and increasingly popular chill-out areas with comfortable seating where you can enjoy a range of sundowners.
The area around this coast is mostly unspoilt and there is not much else to do apart from swim, relax and eat… how unpleasant is that? For the more courageous and adventurous, this coast is known internationally, however, for kite surfing and surfing – especially near the historic, walled town of Tarifa.
The best places on the Atlantic coast are, in our opinion, Conil de la Frontera, El Palmar and Caños de Meca. These beaches are two hours away but well worth the effort – we can not recommend them enough. Directions are available in Reception.
