Sabinillas has flourished over the past couple of decades and is now the main town in the Manilva area, with several banks and other services that include a health and sports centre. It has several supermarkets and a more varied choice of shops and businesses.
The A7 coast road runs directly into the town and via the underpass traffic flows freely and getting to Sabinillas could not be easier. The promenade or paseo in Sabinillas has a selection of quality Spanish tapas bars, restaurants, and chiringuitos offering a variety of food and drinks with other bars and restaurants dotted around the town. Not so long ago the paseo (promenade) was not paved and fishing boats operated from the beach, some of the smaller boats still do, using capstan winches to pull the boats up onto the beach after a days fishing.
Sabinillas still has a relaxed feel during the year, August becomes busy with holiday makers, many Spanish still holiday here, but the beach is never too crowded and finding a space to set up for the day is always possible. During the summer months there is plenty of activities happening on the beach, with summer schools, beach volley ball, inflatable kids play areas and fiestas such as San Juan in June and Virgen del Carmen July 16th. Some of the restaurants offer sun beds on the beach during the summer months normally from mid may until October.
On most Fridays the market sets up on the paseo in front of La Noria apartments and the Sunday market which is much bigger offers more stalls and goods further inland on the Camino Los Banos just 1 kilometre from the Lidl roundabout towards the Roman Baths.
From July to late August the Mercado del Mar (Market by the Sea) sets up during the evening and the town has a carnival feel, with shooting ranges, kiddies rides and other stalls selling candy, clothing, books, etc.
