Marbella

4.1

Spanish Riviera

Once a village of humble fishermen, Marbella is now one of the most cosmopolitan beach resorts on Spain’s world-famous Costa del Sol, boasting swanky nightclubs, classy hotels, and expensive restaurants. Despite the pressures of mass tourism, Marbella has managed to retain its attractive old town, making your sightseeing easily done on foot or by bicycle. The city’s tourist attractions take the form of archaeological heritage sites, several museums and performance spaces, and a cultural calendar packed with events from reggae concerts to opera performances. With a history stretching back to the times of the Phoenicians, Visigoths, Romans, and Moors, modern Marbella is a trendy sanctuary for the rich and famous from around the world. Marbella is in Costa del Sol. To find out how to plan a trip to Spain, use our trip itinerary maker.

Where to stay in Marbella

While Marbella is traditionally known for its expansive resorts and hotels along the shores of the Costa del Sol, the old city center provides top accommodation for those seeking a more authentic Andalusian experience. A lovely mixture of white-washed buildings, charming plazas, and numerous options for dining and shopping, the old center is located within walking distance of the city's Paseo Maritimo, a tree-lined waterfront promenade leading down to the famous Puerto Banus.
