The Local Area

Manilva
The nearest town to Alboran Hills is Manilva which is located at the southern western edge of the province of Malaga, on the border with Cadiz. The town is split into two parts, the seaside resort and the charming white-washed, sleepy village, located just 3 kilometres up a hill from the coast.

The village itself, which is the original Manilva, is bordered by a wonderful vineyard of Moscatel Grapes, which are mainly used for making sweet wine.

Down on the coastal resort, Manilva has managed to retain its small village mentality, opting out of excessive development.

The urbanisations of Sabinillas, Puerto Duquesa and Estepona are all located within a few minutes drive. Malaga is 97 kilometres away, with Gibraltar airport being closer.

History
The town has a fascinating history dating back to Roman times; still today there are some remarkably well-preserved Roman sulphur baths. However if you want to take advantage of these health-giving waters you will have to be prepared to dive into a subterranean cavern and to put up with the smell of sulphur on your swimwear!

Also in the village is an interesting 17th century church and at the foot of the village there are two remaining pieces of aqueduct, in good condition.

Beaches
The beaches in the Alboran Hills area are some of the best on the Costa del Sol, and remain fairly uncrowded during the summer months.

Golf
Being located on the Costa del Golf, means that Alboran Hills  is located within an area with a high density of golf courses, including: La Duquesa, Alemnara in Sotogrande, Alcaidesa Golf in San Roque, Doa Julia in Casares and El Paraiso in Estepona, to name just a few. Manilva offers a perfect central location to reach the many golf courses on the Costa del Sol.

Bird Watching
The neighbouring nature reserve (many of our apartments overlook the reserve) contains a huge variety of birds  .... click here to read more about what you could see.

Eating out
The area offers a good selection of beach-side restaurants and options located in the urbanisation and commercial area. There are a few bars, but no discos and late night-bars.

Climate
Alboran Hills like the rest of its counterparts on the Costa del Sol enjoys a sub-tropical Mediterranean climate, with hot summers and warm winters. Cooling breezes from the sea make the summer heat manageable, temperatures are an average of 32 C in summer.

Alboran Hills is the perfect designation for your holiday. Year round sunshine, blue skies and sparkling clear waters. Situated on the beach, what more could you want?

A short walk from your apartment and you get to the little fishing village of Castillo. Here you will experience the real Spain, eat and drink with the Spanish locals at one of the many small restaurants and bars. Our clients tell us that Castillo has one of the best fish restaurants to be found in Spain Meson del Castillo, and we agree.

Just a short walk on from Castillo you reach Puerto Duquesa. Sit outside at one of the many international restaurants and bars, sip your wine and enjoy the spectacular view over the marina. Here you will find staff who pride themselves on giving not only a high standard of service but producing the type of cuisine that will bring you back time and time again. Also at Puerto Duquesa there are banks, shops, post office, hair dresser, health club etc.
