Duquesa Marina is the ideal place to dine on the evening, or to enjoy long sunny, lazy afternoon lunches. There are a very broad selection of restaurants, ranging from quite sophisticated a la carte restaurants to pizza joints and Chinese and Indian Restaurants.
There are lots of bars, offering different facilities and atmospheres. The emphasis is on the family and although most evenings are very busy in the summer months, there are no night-clubs and the atmosphere is friendly. Most of the bars have satellite TV's so you needn't miss the cricket or football if that’s a major concern to yourself or your kids.
Either side of the port is flanked by long sandy beaches. Looking out to sea the long sandy beach on the left of the marina runs down towards Sabinillas which is a friendly Spanish seaside town. There you will find a 3 kilometre long promenade dotted with every type of restaurant imaginable. Inside the town itself there are more bars and restaurants to choose from all of which are visibly more Spanish than in the more cosmopolitan marina.
On the opposite side of the marina the beach leads to Castillo, named so because of the large Moorish Castle which dominates the skyline. Castillo is basically a fishing village and all of the restaurants there predominantly serve seafood, so if you like fish and octopus, look no further.
