Nearest beaches to Gaucin


I'm thinking of going to Gaucin for a week in September and was wondering how long it takes to drive to a decent beach. By decent I mean not too horribly busy and built up with ok sand and water. In the past we've gone to the Costa Tropical and stayed in Frigiliana, does anyone know how it compares?

Probably anywhere between Estepona and Gib area. Would take you approx 35 to 40 minutes.

We usually go to Frigiliana but we tried Gaucin last November for a change. It took us 45 mins to drive down to the coast compared with 10 mins to Nerja from Frigiliana. We found Estepona far busy than Nerja if you were comparing beach resorts. Gaucin itself is more of a working town than Frigiliana, it is more Spanish and not as busy. I myself prefer Frigiliana but it is all down to individuals choice of what you like.

It takes 25 minutes to drive to Sabinillas - a lovely beach with the usual bars and restaurants along the promenade. Not too busy, popular with locals and tourists alike.
