A cosmopolitan beach resort on the Costa del Sol of Spain, Marbella is one of the Mediterranean’s most representative tourist venues and a traveler’s favorite. History, leisure, and recreation all come together here, making for a fantastic holiday destination. Sitting roughly halfway between Malaga and Gibraltar, travelers have their choice for a convenient arrival.
Marbella is certainly a modern town today, but its roots go as far back as 1600 BC. This history can be discovered in the Old Town and its several sites, including Plaza de los Naranjos
, the Castle, and 16th century Bazan Hospital-turned-Museum of Spanish Engraving. For those who enjoy leisurely strolls, the Golden Mile offers a four-mile stretch that is the sight of luxurious residences and landmark hotels. Other laidback activities to enjoy here are golfing on one of the many spectacular golf courses or hitting up the track for the horseraces. For the adventurous, skiing is just a couple hours away in the Sierra Nevada, and parasailing over the sea can be experienced at the port. From Marbella, one can also broaden their horizons with a trip out to Gibraltar or to the famous yacht marina of Puerto Banus
