El Paraiso comprises several different developments, each featuring their own style of exclusive villas, elegant townhouses and attractive apartments. In the area closest to the beach, you will find the charming complexes of holiday apartments and townhouses. Distributed along small pedestrian ‘calles’ or streets, these properties ooze Spanish charm with their whitewashed walls, decorative iron work, lemon trees and flowering bougainvilleas trailing from walled gardens. Convenience is key in this area, known locally as Benavista. It offers an international school, supermarkets, shops, hairdressers, banks, restaurants, offices, cafes and bars, as well as a great play area for children.
