Manilva is a quiet and charming place that reflects the traditional Spanish culture with sporadic influence of modernization. Unlike metro cities, one can't find large shopping malls or supermarkets, but small shops in villages such as Duquesa and Sabinillas are found quite in a number. Here, a lot of handicrafts products coming from different parts of the world are available. Visitors have an amazing experience of shopping in a wonderful ambience of Manilva.
On Sunday, people can join in a colossal car-boot sale at the nearby community of Sabinillas and buy a variety of items; bargaining is a common phenomena. If one is looking for a wide variety of things, then the El Corte Ingles department store is in Puerto Banus and La Canada shopping centre located just outside of Marbella, are the best options. Both shopping centres are near the Costa del Sol and Manilva. Besides these two, there are more than 100 small shopping centres available such as beauty stores, jewellery shops, shoes and leather bags, garment shops, saloons, and Elemis centres.
