Marbella (Malaga)

Holidaying in Marbella, Malaga

What does a holiday in Marbella hold in store?

 

Marbella is a resort town in Malaga on the southern coast of Spain. Marbella is regarded as Spain’s answer to St Tropez thanks to the wealthy visitors it attract and luxury lifestyle it offers. The town’s image was recently sharpened even further by an investment in redevelopment. However, despite this reputation for the finer things in life Marbella also has a more relaxed and traditional side which is considered more typical of the Costa del Sol.

 

Culture in Marbella

 

Although more widely considered as a playground for the young and wealthy, Marbella has still kept some of its cultural roots. This is evident in areas such as the famous Orange Square that is home the 16th century town hall and the narrow white lanes of the Plaza se los Naranjos. There are also many local shops and restaurants serving up traditional Andalucian fayre for those on holiday whose tastes lean more towards culture than celebrities.

 

A long stroll by the sea

 

Marbella is home to a long promenade which connects the city to the fishing port, Puerto Banus and San Pedro. At ten kilometres long, you can walk, run or ride a bike along the route and explore this impressive stretch of the Marbella coastline. When you reach the fishing port you may be met with an impressive collection of yachts and sports cars as those living the high life come from all over the world to congregate in the Costa del Sol.

 

Take a swing on the Costa del Golf

 

Marbella has earned the nickname of Costa del Golf thank to the (approximately) thirty golf courses in the area, making it the perfect destination for golfers on holiday. Thankfully Marbella benefts from its own microclimate meaning that the temperature is stable and makes it possible to play golf all year around when other European courses have frozen over.
