Ever popular El Pinillo boasts some of the best beaches in the area. Very popular with the British, some of the cheapest property on the Costa del Sol can be found here but prices near the beach are still fairly high. Seafront apartments rub shoulders with long-established hotels. The busy promenade is popular with cyclists, joggers, roller-bladers and dog-walkers. El Pinillo has its own train station, one stop from Arroyo de la Miel, 15 minutes from the airport and half-an-hour from Málaga.
