Marbella is one of the Mediterranean’s most famous tourist venues. What was once a small white fishing village is now one of the most cosmopolitan beach resorts anywhere in Spain.
Stylish and chic, Marbella is the most charismatic area on the coastline of the Costa del Sol. Considered the San Tropez of southern Spain, it draws a glamorous crowd and is home to many local and international celebrities.
Largely free from the high-rise blocks that characterise much of Spain’s southern coast, Marbella has an enchanting old town that echoes traditional Andalucia and is full of history. Its origins date back to 1600 BC so it’s fair to say that a little part of history can be found in every corner of the “old town” (Casco Antiguo). With its Moorish castle, and famous “Orange Square” (Plaza de los Naranjos), home to a mix of traditional coffee bars, terrace restaurants and boutique shops. Locals and tourists alike while away lazy afternoons and evenings lingering over drinks or a meal.. The historical old quarter with the Andalucian/Moorish mix can still be found with its flower filled balconies and narrow streets.
The Golden Mile is a stretch of four miles between Marbella and Puerto Banús, on which are located some of the most luxurious residences in Marbella, including the opulent Palace of King Fahd.
Puerto Banus itself, offers the ultimate in glitz and glamour. Renowned for its nightlife, there is an array of restaurants, bars and swanky cocktail lounges as well as a casino and port that heaves with impressive luxury yachts and fast power boats.
This is a wonderful area to enjoy your holidays and only 30 minutes’ drive from Malaga airport.
