Marbella’s motto is ‘A Way of Life’ and, certainly, this luxurious resort town seems to have it all.
Come to explore the honeycomb of the surrounding narrow streets where homes and shops mix in an atmosphere of a small village, rather than a cosmopolitan town. You will find ruins of an old Arab wall as well as a labyrinth of narrow whitewashed streets, old churches and squares, and lots of fascinating shops and boutiques.
From Guadalalmina to Cabopino, the Marbella coastline stretches along some 26 kilometres of sunny beaches bathed by the Mediterranean. With just about every sporting activity under the sun, few places can match Marbella for world-class tennis, sailing and golf. Only a couple of hours away from major cities like Sevilla and ski-resorts like Granada, its location is unparalleled as a seaside travel base.
Marbella has witnessed the arrival of the Phoenicians, Romans and Moors and over the centuries has seen its name changed many times. Named Salduba by the Romans, it was finally given the name Marbella by the Catholic Monarchs, Isabella and Ferdinand.

Protected by the mountains from the north and cooled by the Mediterranean on the south, Marbella has a unique microclimate with nearly 320 days of sunshine. That has been a major reason why so many travellers arrive to spend their precious holidays each year in Marbella.
