Hidden Secret Port


Cabopino (Cape of Pines) is more succintly described as one of the Costa del Sol’s hidden secrets. Cabopino’s extensive pinewoods are clearly visible from the main highway linking Marbella and Fuengirola. The delightful Puerto Cabopino Port is smaller than its neighbour Puerto Banus, yet equally as picturesque. It is a great place for doing water sports or just having a relaxing sun bathing beach day. Cabopino has delicious seafood restaurants and pleasant bars. It’s sandy beaches are never too crowded and is recognisable thanks to its visually historic landmark tower  – La Torre Ladrones.
