Marbella is, without a doubt, one of the Costa del Sol’s major tourist centres, thanks to the high quality of the facilities and services it provides. Puerto Banús, one of the main focal points for tourists in the city, houses an exclusive leisure area inside the excellent facilities of its marina. But Marbella is also a paradise for golf lovers. More than a dozen magnificent courses allow the golfer to play the sport before the unusual backdrop provided by the sea and the mountains.
The historic part of town, sitting on a beautiful bay, shelters lovely corners of a typically Andalusian flavour, with whitewashed houses and orange trees adorning the streets and squares. Marbella is also the ideal place for shopping! Whether looking for a new outfit in one of the designer shops and El Corte Ingles department store or trying to find some fine pieces of art or jewelry, Marbella is the place to be.
Over the last 3 decades Marbella has grown from a fishing village to a cosmopolitan city. Currently there are more than 135.000 people living in Marbella. For fine dining and partying there is no better place on the Costa del Sol than Marbella. There are 100´s of fine restaurants in the centre around ´the Plaza los Naranjos´ and its small surrounding streets, along the beachfront and of course in the luxury marina of Puerto Banús.
