Just returned from a weeks holiday at the Pez Espada. Weather great for Jan/Feb. Not all premises open but there were plenty of shops and bars etc open. Found a nice little bar/cafe, "The Cosy Corner". Good food. Reasonable prices. La Carihula was spotlessly clean.

There were playgrounds and water spouts to rinse our feet once we walked back on to the pedestrian walkway. Look for street parking one or two blocks up before wandering down to the beach. We found... More

It's one of hose places where it's great just to sit and watch the world go by over a coffee or a beer. Beach goers are well catered for too with beds and parasols for hire , the sea... More

Playa La Carihuela is an excellent sandy beach, ideal for sunbathing. There were a few shingles on entering the sea but only a minor inconvenience. The sea was lovely for the first week but much colder (19 degrees) the second week following a storm.

A nice flat wide beach with several bars and restaurants, it is a lot more spanish here than either of the other local resorts.

Nice stretch of beach to Benalmadena marina. Get there at dawn maybe on an early morning run and see the wonderful sunrises out of the sea. Good promenade with endless places to eat and drink and no traffic.
