Your guide to Marbella holidays
Top 5 things to do in Marbella
Whether you’re travelling with friends, family or on a romantic break, Marbella’s top sights are sure to delight.
- Despite the city’s cosmopolitan vibe, Marbella Old Town dazzles with old Spanish charm. Wander the narrow, cobbled lanes to stumble upon hidden chapels, pretty boutiques and traditional bars.
- For a picture-perfect lunch spot, seek out Plaza de los Naranjos. This little square is easy to miss but, brimming with fragrant orange trees, near impossible to forget.
- Take a leisurely stroll along Paseo Maritimo, a seaside boardwalk from Marbella to Puerto Banus. Coastal views, plentiful cafes and a lovely local feel have earned it the nickname of ‘Golden Mile’.
- Escape the city bustle in tranquil Alameda Park, a jungle oasis in the city. Find a moment’s peace on an Andalusian tiled bench, overlooking the illuminated water fountain.
- For the most magical views in all of town, tackle the four hour hike up La Concha. The incredible panoramas stretch for miles from this scenic peak in the Sierra Blanca mountain range
