Summary of the Beach Inspectors
This busy family beach awaits with colourful loungers, magnificent massages, a beach bar and restaurants. Lifeguards take care of the safety of the predominantly Spanish and British bathers, and a water sports operator with jet skis, pedal boats, SuP and a banana boat provides the necessary variety. A highlight at Playa de Artola Cabopino is undoubtedly the large trampoline installation for children in the middle of the beach. The beach stretches to the west along a fantastic natural dune landscape with a particularly shallow slope into the water. Whilst it's not secluded here, nude bathing is acceptable.

Playa de Artola Cabopino - a friendly family beach full of variety with plenty to offer

This beach is located in the small holiday settlement of Cabopino in the east of Marbella. It is bordered by a marina to the east and its narrow strip of sand runs west for around 1000 metres. This somewhat remote section is suitable for nude bathing.

Playa de Artola Cabopino can be accessed via several entrances. You'll find large car parks right by the main entrance. From there you can get to the beach quickly. Passing the entrance to Andy's Bar and a few toilet blocks, which are free to use, a large, pale area of sand opens up, from which two breakwaters extend into the sea. In the middle several palm trees tower a few metres into the Spanish sky. A large trampoline for little ones can also be found here.

Countless children and families run around and play on the fine, hot sand and in the shallow, calm water. They enjoy the wide variety that this friendly bathing beach has to offer. A lifeguard keeps an eye on everything that's going on, while bathers make themselves comfortable on the many loungers under thick palm canopies. Two restaurants and a little beach kiosk provide the predominantly Spanish and British holidaymakers with snacks, equipment and refreshments. In the charming Andy’s Beach Bar you can indulge in delicious fish and meat dishes, salads, cocktails and ice cream. From 5pm there’s often live music here.

Beach vendors do the rounds. Two massage huts offer their services and are generally well frequented. You'll also find two water sports operators in the centre of the beach. Banana boats, jet skis, kayaks, donuts and stand-up paddle boarding - you can try them all here.

To the west the beach gets narrower, and the hinterland becomes very natural. A Moorish relic protrudes from the dune landscape, which has recently been declared a natural park and made accessible to visitors via boardwalks. Walking through the shallow seawater in the gentle evening light you can experience truly special moments here!
