Marbella Beach

Spain's gold coast

Marbella used to be a small agricultural town on the Costa del Sol, and today it is one of Spain’s most cosmopolitan beach resorts. Over 26 kilometers of clean beaches and the beautiful mountain sceneries of the Sierra Blanca, make Marbella an ideal travel destination for the whole family. There’s a lot to do: catamaran cruises, scuba diving, mountain biking, fishing, golfing, along with shopping in the city’s designer shops, expensive jewelers and trendy boutiques. Cuisine? Exquisite: Marbella boasts two establishments with a Michelin Star, and it is famous for its fresh fish and seafood gastronomy.
