Alternatively, a Bus into Marbella or Puerto Banus takes you to Puerto Banus Market which is very popular with Locals and Tourists alike. Marbella is known throughout the World for the Rich and Famous, who like to spend their holidays here.
If you do decide to drive here, then all the major attractions are close at hand, for golfers there are approximately 60 golf courses along the coast one of which is five minutes away in Miraflores, this is an 18 hole course and very popular.

What Attractions are there?: Selwo Safari Park near Estapona is a lovely place to go for the kids. The BioPark in Fuengirola is a wonderful Zoo which has gone to a lot of trouble to make the animals feel happy in their surroundings, I have been several times and thoroughly enjoyed it. In Benalmadena you have Sea Life which is in the marina and is great fun for adults and children alike. Crocodile Park in Torremolinos is also another place that kids really enjoy. Also, in Aroyo dela Miel is Tivoli World which is a Theme park and great for all the family.
Coach trips to Gibralter, Seville, Ronda, Granada and Malaga are also available. If you like to shop, then The Myramar in Fuengirola or La Canada in Marbella offer all the High Street shops under one roof, beware, you could spend all day here especially in July when all the Sales are on.

About Lynn Banks
My husband and I were looking for a holiday home and had seen many apartments in Mijas Costa, on the day before we were due to go back to the UK we were shown the apartment in Riviera del Sol, we absolutely fell in love with it and when we moved to Spain lived in it for five years, We now live in a house just up the road but couldn't bring ourselves to sell the apartment so decided to rent it out for the Summer.
Lynn Banks purchased this apartment in 2000
Why Lynn Banks chose Mijas Costa
The location is ideal for Marbella and Fuengirola, it is easy to get around if you don't have a car, the Bus stop is in walking distance and there are shops and restaurants all near at hand. The Penthouse is in a well run Community, with lovely gardens and great swimming pool. The apartment has a fabulous terrace with lovely views of the sea, it's ideal for relaxing on the terrace or in the gardens. When we lived there it was like one long holiday, great.
What makes this apartment unique
We have the benefit of sharing the costs of running the Community with Crown Resorts, it is kept up to a high standard. The Lounge is very bright and airy with lovely views from the Lounge window, also the Terrace is very big and great for having lunch or dinner on it in the Summer.
Guestbook comments from the owner
What a welcome Lynn and Dennis met us at the apartment the location was great
near to shops, restaurants and local transport if you dont want to drive.
The apartment is large enough for a family a good size lounge/diner,and kitchen with 2 bathrooms been a bonus,
and the terrace is enourmous and a real suntrap with great views across to Africa and Gibralter.
We had a few barbecues and some great lunches on the terrace 27 out of 29 days
