Marbella Area Guide
Marbella – Quaint, Cosmopolitan, Unique!
Marbella sits in the foothills of the Sierra Blanca mountain range and manages to be both cosmopolitan and traditional. The old town remains strictly authentic Spanish with its narrow cobbled streets lined with colourful bougainvillea all leading to the central Plaza de los Naranjos – Orange Square. Here you will find many small boutiques, tapas bars, Spanish restaurants and cafes where you can wander and feel quite separate from the hustle and bustle of the surrounding town.
The beautiful Avenida del Mar connects the old town with the promenade and has a collection of 10 sculptures by Salvador Dali, cast in bronze and signed by the man himself. There are fountains and shady seating areas to enjoy the fabulous sea views.
Running alongside the gorgeous sandy beach is a stunning promenade with numerous bars and restaurants where you can follow the walkway west all the way to Puerto Banus.
The Golden Mile, which winds its way through Marbella, is famous for its 5 star hotels, first class restaurants and a wide range of shops.
A short drive away is the largest shopping centre on the coast, La Canada where even the most discerning of shoppers will find everything they could possibly want.
There are numerous events taking place all year round, concerts, exhibitions, and sporting activities which continue to make Marbella a very popular destination for Spanish and International visitors.
Marbella is the ideal choice for buyers looking for an internationally renowned destination where the beautifully quaint old town sits alongside the cosmopolitan, modern Golden Mile and tree-lined promenade, lovely sandy beaches and year round entertainment. The lively Puerto Banus is only a 5 minute drive away. Easy access from the town to the AP7 motorway will take you to Malaga airport in less than 30 minutes.
