La Farola – Marbella Centre
While Marbella’s main tourism draw card is undoubtedly its 26km of gorgeous sandy beaches, there is far more to see and do here. Take a stroll along the Paseo Maritimo boardwalk, stop for a coffee at Los Naranjos Square, watch a bullfight in Plaza de Toros or soak in the atmosphere at buzzing José Banús Port.
Due to the central location and proximity to urban amenities, this cosy 1-bedroom apartment offers a perfect starting point for enjoying the Marbella lifestyle and exploring its surroundings.
The Costa del Sol / region
The Costa del Sol stretches along just over 150 kilometres of Málaga province and is one of Spain's most popular tourist destinations. The area's mild climate is the root attraction that makes it possible to enjoy the beaches and a wide variety of outdoor activities year-round. One could say that there are at least 300 days of sunshine a year guaranteed!
The Golden Mile
Arguably the most prestigious address in the whole of mainland Spain. A select stretch of coastline from whence the Marbella tourism phenomenon first emanated. First came the exquisite Marbella Club Hotel conceived by legendary socialite Prince Alfonso de Hohenlohe, then the fine Puente Romano Hotel and latterly a handful of other five-star establishments. Soft sandy beaches on one side, an imposing backdrop of mountains on the other and just a stone's throw from the vibrant marina of Puerto Banús, this is the 'place to be'.
Marbella / area
Protected by the mountains on the north side and cooled by the Mediterranean on the south, Marbella has a unique microclimate that has been a major reason for permanent immigration here. Only a couple of hours distance from major cities like Sevilla and ski-resorts like Granada, its location is unparalleled for using as a seaside travel base.
However for the ultimate in coastal charisma it would be hard to beat Puerto Banus, just west of the town. This is the place to be pampered yacht side and watch the world go by or window shop at one of several of the world-renowned fashion houses and boutiques. The port has grown considerably over the years and now includes a casino, commercial shopping centre, El Corte Ingles department store, marine observatory and a multi cinema with films shown in their original soundtrack. The nightlife is buzzing here with alfresco bars, piano clubs and discos which are open dusk until dawn.
