El Chaparral is first of all recognised for its amazing but difficult golf course. After being shut down and overgrown for many years this fantastic course is now open again to the public. The golf course also features a nice driving range with floodlighting where it is possible to practise until 10 pm. The area around the golf course is also very popular with its immediate setting close to the beach with good restaurants all around in quiet forest surroundings. Mostly detached villas is to be found here, from old spanish styles to modern contemporary. The area has all you need within your reach and close to both La Cala and the bigger city Fuengirola.
