Things to do in Marbella

Marbella is a luxury resort on the Costa del Sol designed in the 1970s by one of the architects of Beverly Hills. Nearly hot and sunny all summer long and warm and mild in the winter, it’s easy to see why those who have the means choose to flock here.
Things to do in Marbella include sunbathing on the stunning black-sand beaches or hiking through the Sierra Blanca mountains. Sit under the orange trees in Marbella’s Old Quarter, or head to Puerto Banus Marina and enjoy the view of impressive yachts and luxury sports cars. And why not get in a round of 18 holes at Los Naranjos golf course?
Join in the Spanish tradition of paseo by strolling down the Avenida del Mar, through the marble tiled Alameda Park or along the beach promenade. For a break from the beach, see a 300-year-old olive tree and an endangered pinsapo pineat (a pine tree native to the area) at the Bonsai Museum. You could also drop by the highly-rated museum of Spanish Contemporary Engravings which exhibits works by Picasso and Miro.
