Home 9 Malaga 9 Manilva


Manilva is located on the Western edge of the Costa del Sol, between the Manilva River and “El Arroyo de Calatraje”. It is one of the smaller towns on the Costa del Sol housing only 5000 inhabitants but is still an incredibly interesting town brimming with history.

It is a very historical town with artefacts being found in the area dating back to the Bronze Age and a Fort located on the beach called the “Torre del Salto de la Mora” which has survived for over five centuries.
The weather in Manilva is unbeatable: they have over 310 days of sunshine each year and rainfall is mainly limited to the winter months. The temperature in the area is often above 20ºC, even in winter and this makes for days filled with blue skies.

Manilva, like many other towns on the Costa del Sol, has a yachting port. This port is called Duquesa and has dozens of restaurants and cafes along with budding bars which make for amazing night life. The town is also home to Sabanillas Market, a market which takes place on a Sunday where many unusual products can be bought.

If staying in Manilva, it is recommended to visit its neighbouring town: Estepona. The best way to reach it is by car.
