Kindly recommend a good parking site (ideally free) to park during the day.
There is a big one on the Bajondillo side as you get to Los Alamos beach. excellent for the beach. Some free street parking near the Playamar apartments. You could leave it all day in LIDL's car park but I wouldn't guarantee that.. On a busy day e.g. sunny Sunday, just don't expect to find a space. If you want the town expect to pay
Small -( seafront) - car parks in La Carihuela, Calle Los Perros & Plaza del Remo, ... both only 2 euro a day if attendant is working! , not bad price for seafront car park! (Los Perros closest to walking around headland to go up to town in elevator) otherwise all street parking around there free, but not many spaces after 9am😉!!
Free parking the entire length of Bajondillo beach on Paseo Maritimo. However by about 9-10 am it is virtually impossible to find a spot.
Were just back and certainly on Calle los ramos were often we had a morning pot of tea, parking available before 11am in the week, but impossible on a week end. There are two big schools in the area, so not a good idea to seek a place around 2 to 3pm, but after the teachers leave after parking all day around 3pm, always a lot of spaces created..
There is plenty of free on street parking in the area if your prepared to drive round, on a number of days taken out by car by friends and on our return, always found a space within 50 yards of where we wanted to be.
