Default Inspection trip - here we come!!

We are off to benalmadena on monday ( 19th ) to view businesses, home rentals and have a good tour of the area.

We are wanting to go on a boat tour of the island. Is there any such thing- maybe from benalmadena marina, that has a good tour of all the areas ( benalmadena/fuengirola/torreblanca, and sights, and maybe even does some "stop-offs"

We want to get around and get a feel of everywhere?

Any specific companies/links etc anyone can recommend??

Thanks for your help

There are two or three yachts that go out from the marina for trips, one is a Chinese Junk, but they go out a bit looking for the dolphins.
There are also two boats that go to Fuengirola from there which would be best for sight seeing.
Open top buses, and the wally train.

Some pics on this site HERE

Dates you here till ? I fly home on the 22nd and return on the 24 th. Seriously though i still say buy more residential as that's where you will make your money. See the state of the bars in Fuengirola etc and the change of ownership every year it is a mess bar the established bars.

Just my opinion and some friendly advice. Not one bar round me are doing bad yet hit the resorts and your on suicide watch, so many depressed faces

If you want a drink and to be shown around feel free to PM.

Good luck

John

Can't comment on that area but maybe JDR can as he lives that way. Riviera and Ronda are two completely different places Ronda is very Spanish and set a good bit from the coast yet Riviera is on the coast in between Fuengirola and Marbella but is mainly residential but with a good percentage of holiday makers as well. You need to see what i mean to understand i feel. So the offer is there to maybe spend a day with me and make your own minds up. Last thing i want you to do is plunge all your hard earned into something and not work out.

Offer is there and would be a pleasure to show you.
