Marbella Life


Marbella was once a fishing village on the Mediterranean, and the old town centre provides all the charm of narrow streets and alleyways of the whitewashed village town houses of old.  Many are now boutiques and antique shops, or quaint fish restaurants and cute boutique hotels.  But the old town charm remains, and under the orange blossom of the aptly named “Plaza de los Naranjos” you can eat splendidly, whilst listening to the cathedral bells chiming the hours.

Walk down to the beach through the Alameda park, with its display of original Salvador Dali sculptures, and set off to walk the Paseo Maritimo. This is a holiday-makers ideal beach walkway, which will take you westwards past the famous marina of Puerto Banus, and on to the next fishing village town of San Pedro Alcantara, approximately 15km easy walking.  You can stop for lunch along the way in a variety of great beach restaurants, all practically on the sands.  You can also cycle this route, but carefully, pedestrians have priority.

Puerto Banus is the hotspot for the rich and famous.  Luxury yachts line the jetties, opposite expensive restaurants, piano bars, and nightclubs hidden in the backstreets.  Just inland of the marina, is a shopaholics dream of designer boutiques, and five star department stores, amidst a selection of street cafes, galleries and restaurants.

Marbella offers something for all the family, fun on the beach, nightlife, sports, shopping, gastronomy, expeditions to the mountains and their white villages.
