It comprises a number of lively neighborhoods, each of which feels like a small town in itself. As for shopping, Marbella boasts one of the best shopping scenes in southern Spain. Its old town is packed with smart boutiques specializing in clothes, shoes, handbags and jewelry, all of which are interspersed with a plentiful supply of tapas bars and beautiful old townhouses. Shopping here, then, is as much about exploring one of Marbella’s prettiest neighborhoods as it is about extending one’s wardrobe. To top everything off, Marbella enjoys 320 days of sunshine a year – that’s inviting at any time.

AREAS

A beautiful place is made up of lovely areas and so it is in Marbella. Here are five of the prettiest spots in town:

Benahavis

Benahavís is known to be the most expensive municipality in Spain when it comes to purchasing a home. It’s very exclusive and upscale and the perfect marriage of lush green spaces and close proximity to the coast and its lovely beaches. Benahavís’ center is on a hilltop with tiny streets, where some of the best restaurants in southern Spain can be found. Visitors will find everything within a five-minute walk. The area is also home to Villa Meribel with its contemporary gleaming white façade and open-plan layout both inside and out. The villa has a refreshing outdoor pool for sipping an afternoon or evening cocktail and an indoor Jacuzzi for soaking tired muscles after a day of sightseeing and an elevator to rest those muscles even more. With seven beautifully-decorated bedrooms, Meribel can accommodate up to 14 guests.

Marbella East

This area has a lot of green space, no high rises and lovely golf courses. It offers wonderful beaches with a beach bar/chiringuito every 325 feet or so. Most of Marbella East is surrounded by pine trees and cork oaks. The area is busy year-round with a number of boutiques, restaurants, and bars. It’s also home to four 18-hole and three nine-hole golf courses on a more than six-mile stretch. Luxury travelers who are avid golfers and who adore beachfront living would love making Villa Verna their vacation home in Marbella East. This gorgeous property is replete with posh amenities such as a massage room, sauna, hammam, gym, cinema room, indoor and outdoor pools, and a glorious outdoor dining area complete with BBQ, terrace and patio. This incredible villa can accommodate up to 14 guests.

Nueva Andalucia

Nueva Andalucia is the largest neighborhood in Marbella with 15,000 permanent residents. That number swells in the summer. Centro Plaza shopping center – a popular meeting point – includes and number of quality shops, restaurants, bars and offices, as well as a supermarket, and gym. Sports enthusiasts can find plenty of activities here including tennis, paddle tennis, and several gymnasiums as well as the Aloha Sports Club. Travelers who want to settle in a private location like Nueva Andalucia, but want to be close to bustling nightlife, shops and restaurants will enjoy staying at Villa Olivia. This very elegant property is just a hop, step and jump from the beautiful Club Naranjos Golf Club and two minutes to local amenities. It has a beckoning heated outdoor pool along with an outdoor Jacuzzi. The designer lounge features a 75-inch plasma TV for watching favorite movies. With six sumptuous bedrooms, up to 14 people can enjoy these lovely surroundings.

Santa Margarita

Santa Margarita is the small enclave that ultimately gave Marbella its essence. It has been home to a number of film stars, entertainers, royalty and business moguls and it is definitely the most expensive area of the city. Elite visitors continue to flock to Santa Margarita for its coastal magnificence. The guest list at the Santa Margarita/Marbella Club has been a who’s who of the great and the powerful of society from the 1950s onward. This is an ideal place for luxury travelers to put down vacation roots and Villa Denise is a befitting choice. The palatial beachfront mansion has utterly amazing water views. Up to 12 guests can enjoy the outdoor pool, indoor and outdoor Jacuzzis, gym, sauna, and hammam. Take advantage of the famously beautiful weather in this area and stretch out on a lounge chair on the terrace by the pool, step down to the ocean for a swim, and end the day with an al fresco dinner.

Sierra Blanca

Sierra Blanca is one of the most exclusive residential areas of Marbella and has been dubbed the Beverly Hills of Marbella. The area takes its name from the mountain range just north of Marbella famous for its iconic La Concha mountain peak which offers shelter from the summer heat and strong winds. This gated location offers tranquility, privacy and fresh air and it’s close to all amenities. It is right in the middle of stunning countryside and natural beauty. It’s the ideal area for Villa Minnie with its spectacular water view and lush landscape. There are nine bedrooms, one of which is a very private penthouse suite. Amenities include a private elevator, sauna, cinema room, massage room, gym, and indoor and outdoor heated pools. This luxurious home can comfortably accommodate up to 18 guests.

RESTAURANTS

There is no shortage of fine dining establishments in Marbella. For a lazy lunch or an elegant dinner, these six establishments are worth investigating:

Besaya Beach

This international fine dining restaurant on Marbella’s Golden Mile has stunning sea views paired with a contemporary vibe. Specialties are fish and seafood dishes with a nouvelle cuisine approach and a pinch of Asian influence. Here, guests will find platters of fresh oysters, king crab salad, octopus salad and fresh salmon tartare. The restaurant also offers steaks cooked on a hot stone that some say even the fussiest love. Besaya is also open for breakfast and has an incredible selection of fresh juices. It’s the ideal place to push the pause button for those on a morning run or bike ride along the Promenade.

Casa Eladio

This three generation family owned and operated quaint little restaurant is on one of the prettiest streets in Old Town. Casa Eladio offers Spanish, and Mediterranean dishes using the freshest products at the local market. Try a starter such as ham croquettes with toasted almond aioli, a main dish like Pintxo hake with citrus hummus, garlic spinach, sweet potato and toasted pine nuts. A must try dessert is the lemon cream pie with lime meringue, citrus and mint. This is relaxed fine dining at its best.

Magna Café

Located in Nueva Andalucia, Magna Café is a lovely venue with a diverse menu and a tranquil ambiance. From the large, wrap-around terrace, guests can enjoy wonderful views of the golf course, the Mediterranean Sea and Gibraltar. The indoor dining area has a lounge bar, ideal for those pre- or post-dinner drinks. The main course dinner menu offers a selection of lobster, fish, and meat dishes such as monkfish osso bucco baked with black olives, and tomato served with fried eggplant or beef tenderloin with foie gras, prosciutto, Madeira wine and truffle oil.

The Marbella Club Grill

Thought to be one of the finest restaurants in Marbella, the Marbella Club Grill provides exceptional cuisine on a spectacular terrace that’s hugged by sumptuous gardens. To start, enjoy a cocktail or two before choosing from the delicious and innovative menu. Spanish and international dishes are created by Michelin-starred chef Juan Glavez. The on-staff sommelier is on hand to help guests pair their meals with the perfect wine from the vast wine list.

Messina

Messina has a very exciting, eclectic menu with dishes such as grilled skate with onion cream and tomato; Argentinian fillet steak and Iberic pork “lasagna” with caramelized apples. Diners at Messina are letting themselves experience sophisticated fusion tastes. The extensive wine list is surely to have a pairing with a luscious meal. The atmosphere is casual chic, but the dishes are anything but casual.

Vovem

Vovem is a beef lover’s Nirvana. The restaurant features specialty beef from around the world including Aberdeen Angus, Wagya, Kobe and the famous Chilean beef. Choose a ribeye, porterhouse, fillet or a full rack of ribs. All dishes are made with the utmost care and scented with aromas from oak coals. Vovem also offers tapas for sharing dishes and the freshest fish of the day. Desserts are all homemade, and delicious.

THE ARTS

When vacationers want to step away from their luxury holiday villa rentals Marbella has lots to offer such as these five very interesting venues:

Bonsai Museum

This lovely little museum has the largest collection of wild olive trees in the world. The Bonsai trees are glorious with specimens like the hackberry from China, a 300-year-old olive tree, and a 400-year-old juniper, among others. The museum is said to have the best collection of Bonsai trees in Europe. The main part of the museum has a selection of 30 trees all spaced out on columns and plinths. A second indoor selection of very large ficus olive trees between 300 and 500 years old. A third area is outside with a wide variety of all sorts of lovely bits of nature.

Cortijo de Miraflores Museum

The Museo Cortijo Miraflores (Cortijo Miraflores Museum) is an active and versatile little cultural center housed in what was a country estate centuries ago. It hosts all sorts of cultural events ranging from lectures to music, meetings and exhibitions. The original building was constructed in 1706 as part of a country estate, including oil and sugar mills. The building underwent numerous changes over the years, and both the building and the surrounding gardens took on their present look in the 19th century. It was abandoned for years and fell into disrepair, but was renovated and turned into a museum, which includes spaces not only for exhibitions but also for other cultural activities. In one of the museum's rooms visitors will find the old oil mill and see the old process for extracting oil from olives.

Museo del Grabado

This museum schedules national temporary and touring exhibitions of prints and graphic works, and also arranges courses on print-making, lectures on art, concerts and drawing competitions. Every year the Spanish Contemporary Print Museum organizes the National Print Awards. The museum’s collection of prints and artworks covers the whole panorama of the best contemporary Spanish art expressed in a medium widely embraced by contemporary artists, and includes etchings, aquatints, lithographs, woodcuts and other examples of graphic art by such internationally-renowned artists as Dali, Picasso, Tápies and Miró.

Ralli Museum

Located at the very heart of the Costa del Sol, on the avenue that joins Marbella and Puerto Banús, Marbella’s Ralli Museum opened in 2000 and contains one of the most important Latin American art collections in Europe. Ten exhibition rooms show the different avant-garde movements that took place in both continents through various artists from different countries and styles, and with the particular presence of Surrealism from Europe and Latin America. Visitors can see works by Wilfredo Lam (Cuba), César López Claro (Argentina), Roberto Matta (Chile), Herman Braun-Vega (Peru), Mario Aguirre (Mexico), Marc Chagall (Russia), Joan Miró (Spain), Salvador Dalí (Spain) and Giorgio de Chirico (Italy), among others.

Salvador Dali Sculptures

Marbella is home to an open-air collection of sculptures by Salvador Dali (1904-1989). The Catalonia-born artist never lived or worked here, yet 10 of the surrealist’s intriguing bronze works are scattered along the Avenida del Mar, a spacious boulevard connecting the modern city center with the Paseo Maritimo. The seaside location provides the perfect setting in which to contemplate these works of art at leisure.

NIGHTLIFE

The three venues here are sure to give vacationers a terrific night out:

Joy’s Live

Joy’s Live pub has made quite a name for itself in Marbella. Over the past three decades, the establishment has been entertaining locals and visitors in the best way possible. There is a front terrace ideal for cocktails while watching the fascinating folk go by. Joy’s really comes to life at night and attracts a varied clientele. Live music is appreciated by the hip crowd and the music genre can vary from rock to jazz. This is a late night bar for those who like to party into the wee hours.

La Sala

The ultimate social and dining experience, La Sala is the place to be seen in Marbella. The venue has many different areas where guests can congregate to eat, drink and reconnect with friends. There is live music and DJs throughout the week to get the party started. It might be best to book ahead since La Sala is a very popular place.

News Café

Here is one of the trendiest bars in Marbella. News Café attracts its share of celebrities who like to experience the funky house vibe. The views are pretty amazing as well – overlooking the boats in the port. There are two terraces from which to do so while sipping a cocktail under the stars. News Café is just for summertime fun since it closes during the winter off months.

EVENTS

If travelers like to partake of local events to get a sense of the cultural scene, here are three in Marbella sure to entertain:

Fuengirola International Fair

The Fuengirola International Fair is one of the most anticipated events of the spring on the Costa del Sol. With more than a million visitors per year, the fair is a great way to learn about cultures from around the world without leaving the area. The five-day cultural festival hosts more than 33 countries and features music, dancing and foods from all over the world. Spanish regions such as Madrid, Basque Country and Valencia are represented as well. Visitors can buy all sorts of crafts, clothes, and art. Have fun dancing to international music and celebrating the cultures from around the globe. Guests are encouraged to get into the spirit by wearing something from their own cultures.

Marbella Carnival

This carnival includes fun and entertainment in four different areas of the city: Marbella center, San Pedro de Alcantara, Nueva Andalucia and Las Chapas. The "Carnaval de Marbella" is celebrated every year and is a festive occasion for those of all ages. Everyone dresses up in costume and participates in a number of activities offered by the city such as a parade of costumes, costume contests, a comedy parade and a children’s parade.

Verdiales Music Festival

The Verdiales Music Festival happens right smack in the middle of Christmas festivities every Dec. 28. The festival brings together competing “pandas” as they are known. These groups practice one of three different forms of Verdiales singing accompanied by traditional folk dance and unforgettable costumes. Agility seems to be one of the top requirements for the couples who provide performances in leaps and bounds. Verdiales is a form of flamenco that first developed a century ago. It's also one of the earliest forms of fandango. This is an original folk song form that has been slowly adopted into the flamenco tradition but still retains its distinctive character.

ACTIVITIES AND EXPERIENCES

Activities and experiences in Marbella can be as unique and customized as guests would like them to be. Here are four interesting choices:

Caminito del Rey Trail

Those who aren’t affected by heights, might want to add some adventure to their Marbella holidays by taking a day trip to hike the Caminito del Rey. Once dubbed the world’s scariest hike, it has been completely renovated as a very safe, but still thrilling way to experience the spectacular El Chorro gorge from more than 325 feet in the air. There is a combination of gentle hiking through stunning scenery and vertiginous sections of boardwalks, with an amazing suspension bridge spanning the gorge. The route is nearly five miles and is fairly flat, so hiking the trail normally takes around two-and-a-half hours.

Day Trip to Granada

A day trip will allow travelers to experience the beautiful city of Granada. Explore the Alhambra, the palace of Charles V. Declared a World Heritage Site, it is the most famous and best preserved Moorish building in Spain. Stop by the cathedral in Plaza de Las Pasiegas and the Palace of the Marques de Salar. Before heading back to Marbella, make sure to savor the Arabic-Andalusian traditional cuisine such as Sacromonte tortilla, Papas a lo Pobre, stews and casseroles including the San Antons.

Day Trip to Malaga

Málaga is the largest city in the Costa Del Sol region and provides a good mix between tourist infrastructure and a local vibe. Famed as the birthplace of Pablo Picasso, visitors can take in a museum dedicated to the artist right in the city center. There are a myriad of interesting museums and art galleries scattered across the city, making it a cultural delight. There is also a beautiful beach stretching across the waterfront and marvelous views of the Andalusia Mountains. Seafood lovers will be in heaven trying out the restaurants along the coastline.

Visit Puerto Banus

Puerto Banus is one of the oldest and most luxurious marinas of the Andalusian coast. A must-visit place for tourists who choose Marbella and the Costa del Sol as a destination for their holidays. Whether visiting it by day or by night, travelers can enjoy shopping at its fashionable boutiques, have a drink in one of its many bars, eat in its restaurants and admire spectacular yachts and luxury cars. Plus, each summer, Puerto Banus is the place for celebrating artisans. In the Plaza de Antonio Banderas, an international crafts market is set during the months of June, July and August. This is a terrific chance to buy all kinds of objects crafted by artisans from different countries such as Morocco, India and Turkey, among others.
