Manilva is a charming Andalusian village, sitting close to the sea and surrounded by vineyards. It has lovely beaches and a world-classmarina. The municipality comprises five major districts and several housing developments. Although tourists are just starting to discover the village (with good reason), it remains intrinsically Spanish. Like all Spanish towns and cities, Manilva has an annual feria or fair, which in Manilva’s case is held in the second week of August, to coincide with Spain’s national holiday, Ascension Day on 15 August.
