Puerto Cabopino, translated as Pine Cape Beach, feels a world away from all of Marbella's resorts, shops and restaurants. Here, you'll find sand dunes backed by pine trees and rolling waves. What's more, the amenities surrounding the beach offer all you need for a day along the shore – easy parking, casual restaurants and bars, and restrooms.
Most travelers appreciated Puerto Cabopino's family-friendly atmosphere and gentle waters, as well as its nearby collection of restaurants and bars, ample parking and restrooms. However, some travelers were annoyed by vendors hawking their goods; they recommend ignoring these sellers.
You'll find Puerto Cabopino Beach and Marina less than 10 miles east of Old Quarter Marbella. Access to the beach is free. Keep in mind: It can get busy with travelers, especially during peak tourist season. If you're looking to get away from the crowds, consider Playa Artola – a shoreline home to protected sand dunes right next to Puerto Cabopino.
