Over the years, this south-west region has developed into the playground for the super rich and those famous people, who like to be seen. The super yacht marinas Puerto Portals and Port Adriano serve as the ideal hotspots for any kind of extravaganza to be staged. The choice of exquisite, top-class restaurants and chic cocktail bars or cafés competing for the coveted "place to go" label is endless. Stunning villas that shamelessly display an opulence that is jaw-dropping are no rarity in the south-west. Luxury townhouses or apartments in a gated community near to one of the numerous, challenging golf courses are favourite lock-up and go properties.
