Cabopino is a jewel at the heart of the Costa del Sol, surrounded by sand dunes, pine trees and traditionally-designed homes, but it now looks neglected and is desperately in need of improvement. It is the smallest of Marbella’s three marinas, the other two being Puerto Banús and La Bajadilla, and has always had a lower profile despite being popular with tourists.
Built in the 1970s, Cabopino is about to enter a new stage in its existence. Now that the 40-year concession which has been held by a Danish businessman through the Marina de Cabopino company has expired, new investors want to take over with his support and backing, and they have jointly presented a project to modernise the port and put an end to its problems, with an initial investment of about five million euros.
