An overview of Marbella

Marbella is a seaside town located in the region of Málaga, in the independent region of Andalusia, in southern Spain. This renowned resort attracts visitors from all over the world thanks to its beautiful seaside, its sumptuous marina and its lively nightlife.

The city of Marbella has a rich history that dates back to Roman times, when it was known as Salduba. During the Moorish occupation, Marbella developed into an important business community, and many of its structures and fortresses were worked on during this period. After the Christian reconquest, Marbella became a centre of trade between Europe and Africa, and its key area made it a target for corsair attacks. During the 16th century, Marbella was granted the status of a city, and has been developing and growing ever since.

Today, one of Marbella’s most prominent features is its beautiful coastline. There are over 20 beaches in Marbella, each with its own personality and appeal. The most famous beaches in Marbella probably include Playa del Link, Playa del Faro and Playa de Venus. These beaches are known for their reasonable turquoise waters and delicate, shiny sand, and are ideal for sunbathing and swimming.

Another well-known attraction in Marbella is the marina. Home to probably the most extravagant yachts and boats on the planet, the marina is a nerve centre, with shops, restaurants, bars and nightclubs covering the promenade.

The marina is also an extraordinary place to watch the sunset, when the sun dips behind the mountains, painting the sky with a warm orange glow.

Marbella is also known for its vibrant nightlife, which is why it attracts so many holidaymakers. There are many bars, clubs and pubs in the town, each offering something else for the party-goers. Marbella’s best known clubs include Pangea, Olivia Valere and Tropicana. These clubs are known for their high energy air and music, and are perfect for night owls.

Another good reason to visit Marbella is its rich social heritage. The city is home to a number of exhibition halls and works of art, including the Gallery of Contemporary Spanish Engraving, the Contemporary Art Museum of Malaga and the Picasso Historical Centre. These exhibition halls showcase works by the main artisans of the 20th and 21st centuries and are an extraordinary way to discover the city’s social heritage.

Marbella is also an incredible place to shop, with many boutiques and shops selling everything from ready-to-wear dresses to private creations. The city is home to a few shopping centres, including Centro Comercial La Cañada, one of the largest shopping centres in southern Spain. This shopping centre houses over 200 shops, restaurants and cinemas, making it the ideal place to spend a day shopping and entertaining.

Finally, Marbella is also an incredible place for outdoor exercise and sports. The city is surrounded by beautiful mountains that are perfect for climbing, trekking and horse riding. There are also almost 80 golf courses nearby, including the Marbella Club Golf Resort, one of the most outstanding fairways in Europe. These greens are perfect for both expert and novice golfers.
