Car: not necessary
Miraflores makes a great base for those wishing to explore the Costa Del Sol, with the ever popular Fuengorolia and Marbella only fifteen minutes away. The complex is built around a very testing but very pretty 18 hole golf course. Also for golfers there are up to 30 other courses within 45 minutes travelling time. Equally for those who want a quiet less active break La Cala beach is only 10 minutes walk away, so too are a variety of shops and restaurants. Miraflores Country Club with live music most evenings is also very local. For those wishing to cook 'Al Fresco' a gas barbeque is supplied on the main terrace.
Other Activities: go karting, waterpark, retail park.
Golf: Great base for Golf.
Miraflores course is not long but very cleverly designed.....some great match play holes.
Cabapino course nearby is again not on the long side but quite tight, and has some amazing views over the Med.
El Chapperral is also with 5 min by car, great contours and true greens.
Santana,about 10 min away by car,great visual course, wide open fairways,reasonable flat, you could score low here if you get a bit of luck.
Alhurin el Grande, very challenging, especially for mid to high handicappers,always a bit of wind here.But also some lovely views, about 30 min from apartment.
Calanova, I played this in October, I liked it a lot.Great design.You can see this course from the balcony of our apartment, look to the left as you are facing the mountains.The tees seem always to be elevated you get to see the hole and its designs early, again great views and great fun.
