Marbella It is one of the best-known Spanish cities abroad, mainly thanks to the glamor of many of its visitors and inhabitants in recent years. It is also the most important tourist spot on the Costa del Sol and it has about five months a year of guaranteed sun, although as a general rule throughout the year the weather is very pleasant. Despite its enormous popularity, it has not been "derailed" and retains the charm of every Andalusian city with plenty of white houses, mainly in the city center.
In the old town you can find beautiful places to wander around like the Orange Square (Here it is essential to sit down to have an ice cream or a cheesecake on one of its terraces). In this area you will find a lot of typical shops, especially crafts. The contrast between the small shops of a lifetime and the great luxuries of the great designers is curious. At night there is a lot of going and the best plan is to book a dinner at any restaurant (if you are in the sea area much better), go to a play and then have a drink in a pub.
But if anything is successful in Marbella it is its beaches, mainly those of El Fuerte and El Fontanilla, which are in the heart of the city and with a wonderful Paseo Marítimo that runs through them from cover to cover and where you will find plenty of bars and shops for anything you need. The beaches, with fine sand, are very long and have hammocks, umbrellas and everything you could need for a wonderful day in the sun. There the typical ones are made gigantic figures of sand and there are a lot of tile benches where you can sit for a rest.
