Las Chapas is a predominately upmarket residential area, located just over 7 miles away from the popular resort of Marbella. You’ll find a few bars and a supermarket in the area and a small market takes place each Friday. For a greater choice of restaurants and cafes, you should visit Elviria which is around a mile away. Heading downhill brings you to the Marbesa Beach which has some excellent eateries perched on the seafront. Las Chapas is flanked on both sides by golf courses with the Santa Maria Golf Club on the Elviria side and the Cabopino Golf Club on the other, the latter also having a lovely little marina full of atmosphere in the evenings.
