Summary of the Beach Inspectors

The narrow sandy beach of Playa de las Chapas is situated in the east of Marbella and is home to the world famous Nikki Beach Club. In the exclusive setting of the two neighbouring beach clubs you can have champagne served at your sun bed and dance by the pool to cool DJ sounds. During the day you will find lots of young families and singles at this beach, which also has more reasonably priced places to eat and even a water sports operator. When the sun sets, bathing the exclusive holiday resort in ethereal light, the 750 metre long beach becomes enchantingly beautiful.

Playa de las Chapas - a narrow sandy beach with an exclusive touch in the east of Marbella

Playa de las Chapas is backed by holiday resorts ranging from sophisticated to luxurious in the east of the beautiful city of Marbella. In this spot where the rich and beautiful spend their summer holiday, you too can enjoy the kiss of the sun on your skin. The beach is definitely worth a visit because it has so much to offer. On its 750 metres you will find a carpet of the finest, light sand, which slopes gently down into the cool seawater. At the back of the narrow beach is Nikki Beach Club and right next to it, Orange Beach Club, which belongs to the 5-star resort, Don Carlos.

In the summer months you'll encounter a sophisticated clientèle at Playa de las Chapas. In the beach clubs the international jet set enjoys the exclusive service, at considerable cost. However, you can spend your day at the beach on huge sun beds and relax in the shade of broad sun canopies, which are stretched out between tall palm trees. The champagne that is served direct to the loungers by attentive waiters provides chilled refreshment. Cool music plays from the speakers and conjures up a relaxed and intimate atmosphere in the club. In the restaurant area behind, a selection of culinary delicacies is served to you as you sit on the chic, light wooden furniture. In the evenings the music is turned up so you can dance late into the night to cool DJ sounds. Life can be beautiful!

At two raised chiringuitos right on the beach you can indulge at slightly more reasonable prices. Whether it’s a cool drink on the fantastic sun terrace or a sumptuous dinner in the glow of the setting sun – this beautiful sandy beach on the Costa del Sol provides the perfect setting in which to relish the Spanish delicacies.

A water sports operator adds variety to the beach, which is visited mainly by a young, international crowd, as well as numerous families. Whether you're sailing, jet skiing, banana boating, stand-up paddle boarding or riding a pedal boat - you won't be bored here.
