Marbella is a beautiful elongated town situated on the Costa del Sol, the southernmost coast of Spain. This coastline is blessed with 300 days of sunshine per year. The Costa del Sol is divided into an eastern and a western part. For tourism, the western part is particularly important. Because of its location at the foot of the Sierra Blanca, summers are not too hot and winters are relatively mild.
The N340 coastal road connects the airport of Malaga with the rest of the coast.
Old Marbella is definitely worth a visit. During a walk through its narrow streets you will see various churches, the old town hall and houses adorned with colorful flowers. After the walk head over to the Plaza de los Naranjos for something to eat or drink.
The popular district of Puerto Banus is perfect for a stroll if just to admire the yachts moored there. Furthermore, there are a lot of cafes and shops situated along the harbor.
The Costa del Sol offers beautiful, well-maintained beaches. The average water temperature is 18 C (24 C in August).
There is a wide array of attractions including two casinos, water parks, a zoo, bullfights and Tivoli Gardens.
Thanks to the multitude of facilities and the wonderful climate, all kinds of sports can be enjoyed here. Of course, all types of water sports (swimming, sailing, jet-skiing, etc) are possible. There are also excellent facilities for tennis and golf.
The rich history of Andalusia, with its various influences, means there is a plethora of ruins and historic places of interest to see.
There are few other places with so many restaurants of all categories. The typical dishes of the Costa del Sol are seafood dishes. The "el pescaito frito" is especially well known.
Besides the beaches there is a beautiful inland countryside with famous white villages. The mountains offer a great variety of flora.
