A few years ago, what is now Avenida del Mar, used to be a small park with albero floor, benches and a fountain that led to the Marbella promenade. Today, it has changed its appearance adapting a more modern feel, but is still a prelude to the sea. The avenue connects to Alameda Park (another iconic site) with a new promenade. The floor is marble and in the central area, there are interspersed pergolas, fountains and a collection of sculptures designed by Salvador Dali cast in Bonvicini bronze in Verona. There are restaurants, bars and one of the hot spots, The Buddha Bar, along the sides.
You'll ask yourself... How can you take so many photos of such a small place? Every angle is charming. We talk about a passage that's easy to go through. We found it by chance.It is a pedestrian, narrow street full of small craft shops, and very quiet, although connected to Plaza de Constitucion (quite busy). It is in the historic center, with a courtyard in the middle. Its name comes from an actor (Chinitas), ve used to work at a coffee shop.
The Bajondillo Promenade is located right at the beach of the same name, which is one of the most famous of the Malaga municipality of Torremolinos and it earned its name due to a "small" gap that occurs there before entering the water . When strolling along the promenade, you see that most of the hotels are right on the beach in Bajondillo such as: The Sol Principe, Melia Costa del Sol, etc ... Also on the Paseo Marítimo are most of the stalls that are put in Torremolinos at night, and if you look in the face of the beach, you will find all of the famous bars located right there.

Nerja is a town at the eastern end of the province of Malaga, on the coast and bordering Granada province. Although it's a tourist town with a large foreign population, it hasn't lost its roots, and still retains the traditional Andalucian architecture. The old town is characterised by cobbled streets and low houses with whitewashed walls, and potted plants decorating the balconies. Calle Anima is a charming, bright street with old houses. Strangely enough, many of the residents here are foreigners, who have learned to respect the customs and traditions of the town and its environment.
The Boquete de Calahonda in Nerja is a small passage that leads almost to the sea at Playa de Calahonda (thus the name, meaning the "Calahonda Gap." It has an arched doorway and is located in the heart of Nerja near the Balcon de Europa and the tourist information kiosk. It is one of the most photographed spots in the city.
Calle Pintada is one of the busiest streets in Nerja for tourists and residents alike. It runs from Plaza Cantarero to the Balcon de Europa and is full of shops, including souvenir stores for tourists, restaurants, bars, and monuments. Although it's been renovated several times, it still has a historical character and lovely Andalusian aesthetics with flowers on the walls.
Calle El Salón is one of the most popular streets in the old town of Nerja and it forms part of Plaza de la Cavana, just past the Balcon de Europa. I started to walk down it on the way to the beach and the street becomes very narrow and long passageway that eventually leads down to Playa de El Salon. It used to be a dirt path, but now it is lined in grey stone and decorated with white pictures.
It's funny how an alley can become a must within a village. In this case for me, it is. You can not go without having a little walk Frigiliana, it is one of the most charming parts of town: for the homes, pots and painted doors. Interesting fact: it is twinned with Chefchaouen, one of the prettiest towns in Morocco.
Walking around Frigiliana is like taking a trip through time because the remnants of three cultures - Islamic, Jewish and Christian - have been conserved here. An example of Islamic culture are the "ramparts" or alleys that were part of the Islamic medieval cities, which in Frigiliana are intact even after the passage of time. These alleys lead to private homes and have an entrance and no exit. One such alley is the Alley of the Lord (Callejón del Señor): at the entrance, there is a picture of Christ crucified, with a candlelit lamp, the entrance roof is (like all others) made of reed. The whiteness of the walls, the flowers and above all the cleanliness (which the neighbours have undertaken) are seen in every nook and cranny in Frigiliana.
In Fuengirola you can go out for a walk and come back without having had enough time to see each and every one of the many parts of this great city. You'll need good shoes to say that "you visited the city". It's big, nice, neat and clean, a great opportunity to spend a few days.
