Many people choose Marbella year after year as a vacation destination but the beautiful Spanish city is also becoming a central location for holiday homes from people all over the world.
Why is it so popular, you might be wondering? It goes without saying that the climate may have a part to play in it. Most people would choose 300+ days of beaming sunlight than regular rainy days and gloomy clouds that always seem to be present in other countries.
If you want to rub in some sun cream and wear Summer clothes to your heart’s content, Marbella is definitely the place to do it. It is not only ideal for people who want to spend their days lazing in the heat however, there is lots to see and do in Marbella and with lots of transport routes nearby, it is easy to get around.
Marbella is home to some of the most beautiful beaches and you can’t be there without strolling along the golden sands and checking out the Mediterranean Sea and the exquisite Rock of Gibraltar. It doesn’t have to be all fun and games, perhaps after soaking up the rays – you will want to do something a little more interesting with your time.
There is lots to explore with lots of historical towns and cities nearby that hold heaps of stories. You should definitely head to the Torre Tavira in Cadiz, the beautiful landmark has been around since the eighteenth century when it was originally constructed as a watchtower.
If you would prefer to do a fun activity then why not head over to Tarifa and check out its amazing kite school? The old town of Marbella itself has winding streets and quaint little local shops, letting you explore a bit of the culture and promising to make you smile.
If you want to check out some street performers and soak up the electric avenue of Marbella then a trip along the Paseo Maritimo between the towns of Puerto Banús and San Pedro Alcántara is in order. The walkway is home to fun beach bars, gymnastic performances and much more.
If shopping is something that excites you then this is also something that Marbella delivers on. Puerto Banús holds many stores selling both modern and more traditional goods including clothes, jewellery, gifts and a whole lot more. All that shopping might tire you out so stop off at one of the city’s restaurants for a spot of something delicious to eat.
If you want to take a break for all the sunlight then why not experience a little snow too with a skiing trip to the popular ski resort, Sierra Nevada. It is over a two hour drive away from Marbella but it makes a great day out for the whole family and it is definitely worth a short road trip.
As you can see, there is so many things to do in Marbella and these are just the tip of the iceberg! You will never run out of things to do if you vacation in the beautiful city or even if you purchase a home out there. With beautiful sights, warm weather and paradise beaches, what’s not to love?
