Go to the flagship destination of the Costa del Sol! Marbella is to Spain what Saint Tropez is to France: a former typical village, which has retained its charm despite the rapid development of tourism facilities and its 'jet-set' image.
The charming streets of old Marbella, nestled in the heart of the city, make you quickly forget the concrete buildings, the traffic and the hustle and bustle of the Costa del Sol. This former Arab district is a maze of narrow and twisted streets, where you can happily lose yourself while exploring. The famous Plaza de los Naranjos is the hub of old Marbella where it is a real pleasure to sit on the café terraces in the shade of blossoming orange trees. On your way, stop off at the Church of Nuestra Señora de la Encarnacion; at the Museum of Spanish Contemporary Etching; at the Bonzai Museum and at the Virgin on the Balcony, which is surrounded by bougainvillea.
As for the coastline, the long beaches are dotted with luxury hotels and some of the best restaurants in Spain, also some of the most overcrowded! As for water sports, 'Funny Beach' is is a club not to be missed, offering a complete range of water and land sports.
Marbella is not only about beaches however, it is also known for its golf courses (there are a dozen of them!) The San Pedro de Alcantara is particularly popular with the English and every year the golf valley attracts golf professionals and enthusiasts from all over the world. Only four miles from Marbella, Puerto Banus is a marina which is frequented by a number of local celebrities and it boasts almost a thousand sailboats and yachts, each one more luxurious than the next. Along the marina you will find a multitude of restaurants, bars, antique dealers and luxury shops, which are often open all night during the high season.
It is also possible to opt for more remote sightseeing trips from Marbella. The most curious tourists and British crown devotees go to admire the legendary rock of Gibraltar. Finally, many travel agencies offer tours across the Mediterranean Sea to Morocco, Ceuta and Melilla.
