Many people think of Marbella as being the the name for the whole of the Western Costa del Sol . Marbella itself is an elegant town with an extensive promenade and a wonderful combination of the old and new which gives it it’s unique atmosphere.
Originally a fishing town nestling under the protection of La Concha Mountain on the edge of the Mediterranean its unique micro climate has made it one of the most temperate places in Europe. 300 days of sunshine with mild winters and relatively comfortable summer temperatures have guaranteed its popularity with thousands of visitors who come year after year.
Marbella’s reputation as a “bolt hole” for the rich and famous is based upon the Golden Mile, the area between Puerto Banus and Marbella where the famous Marbella Club and Puente Romano Hotels are now surrounded by some of the most valuable Real Estate on the coast.
The visitor to Marbella is able to soak up the atmosphere of the “Old Town” with fascinating buildings and narrow streets all of which seem to lead into Orange Square. This is the place to enjoy a relaxing evening meal under the stars or during the day to enjoy Churros or a relaxing drink.
Marbella’s night life is somewhat more restrained than Puerto Banus and there is a wealth of elegant bars and restaurants throughout the town to cater for all tastes and budgets.
The Paseo Maritimo stretches right the way along the coast line and provides a great pedestrianised walking giving access to the beach, many restaurants and chiringuitos.
On the outskirts of the town is the La Cañada shopping mall, one of the largest on the South Coast of Spain which offers around 300 shops including many of the high street names as well some boutiques. It all houses a multiplex cinema, bowling alley, numerous restaurants, and large hypermarket as well as DIY store and an auto centre.
