The city and resort area of Marbella in Spain is a famous tourist hotspot.  Situated in the South of Spain’s famous Costa del Sol, this is the place to be.

The Golden Mile, a prestigious area in Marbella Spain, along the Mediterranean coast stretches for 2 km from Puerto Banús to Marbella center. Nightclubs, Puerto Banús Marina, and the luxury yacht clubs all looking very high-end and luxury touristy.  Surrounded by upmarket boutiques and bars, you will see why this is a popular holiday spot.

But there is something for everyone in the beautiful Marbella.  With a fantastic promenade that begs you to come for a walk and little shops everywhere, Marbella has a lot to offer.

Best time to visit Marbella

Obviously, this is a summer destination.  However, if you are looking for fantastic weather but a little less touristy then September and October might be the best months to visit.

Is Marbella worth a visit?

In my opinion, everyone will enjoy going to Marbella (young and old). Surrounded by upmarket boutiques, bars, perfect beaches, nightclubs, luxurious venues, and interesting sight-seeing opportunities worth exploring, Marbella also offers some quiet time. The beautiful pedestrian-friendly streets have hundreds of beautiful restaurants from where you can just sit and enjoy your holiday.
