A trio of prosperous communities: Elviria, El Rosario, Cabopino

Ideally fit for a socially-reach, activity-diverse family life, Elviria, Rosario and Cabopino, each have their own character and unique charm. Cost-line located, mostly up-market and featuring some of the best beaches on the coast, Elviria and Rosario are two ‘full package’ urbanisations with beautiful villas and apartments, countless restaurants and chiringhitos, international school, plus many facilities for outdoor lovers and water enthusiasts. Some of the most posh-crowd magnet beach clubs are also located here, for those days (or nights) when this kind of socializing is on the agenda.

Only 10 minutes drive away, the cozy Cabopino marina – a pretty little port surrounded by apartments, bars and restaurants – is an attraction in his own right, both to be a resident, with a terrace overlooking the boats and the sea or to come for eating out, listening to live music and enjoying a view of the yachts moored here. A full week buzzing nightlife, a beach with a very relaxed atmosphere – relaxed enough to host a nudist beach – and a fantastic natural park of sand dunes, with a wooden walking track along the beach are all trademarks of this charming Cabopino area.

Coffee shops, bakeries and ice-cream parlours in Marbella. The best on the Costa del Sol

Coffee shops, bakeries and ice-cream parlours in Marbella. The best on the Costa del Sol

We’re crazy about coffee! That’s a fact, and what better incentive can there be to get out of bed in the morning; what better excuse for making a stop on the way when we’re travelling, or to get together with friends… having a coffee is more than the action of drinking something delicious; it’s a social activity.

While there are famous chains that you can find all over the world, Marbella has in a certain way placed more emphasis on offering a wide range of select coffees. These coffees are usually fair trade and organic, with the grains being ground for each cup of coffee. This so-called third coffee wave has opened the way for small, cozy neighborhood coffee shops, where the baristas know the customers by name.

Café de Ronda is the ideal place to go if you fancy a good cup of coffee and some artisanal pasta, freshly made tapas, lunch or just a drink as the sun goes down in a sophisticated but relaxed atmosphere. It’s the perfect place to start the day in Marbella, since it’s open from 8.00 a.m. and the breakfast selection is excellent, with everything from delicious eggs benedict to fresh fruit salads.

It also has very fast Wi-Fi, so customers can work quietly while they enjoy wonderful food inside or outside on its sunny terrace.
