Villas in Marbella

Southern Spain’s equivalent of St Tropez, Marbella is traditionally the playground of the rich and famous. However, it is also a favourite location with those wishing to discover the cultural aspects of this town. The famous ‘Orange Square’ is located in the back streets of the old town and is well worth a visit with its stately buildings, shops, art galleries, bars and bistro. The vast choice of restaurants available range from cordon bleu to traditional Spanish tapas, and the coastline consists of 26 kilometres of beaches bathed in Mediterranean sunshine.

Attraction parks

Funny Beach Marbella

Far more than a go-karting venue, Funny Beach is the ideal venue for lovers of speed, adrenaline and sheer fun. As well as go-karting both for adults and kids, there are trampolines, bumper boats and electric vehicles, not to mention an array of water sports and a beach club in the summer months. It’s located right on the beach between Marbella and Elviria.

Aventura Amazonia

Located just 500 metres from the beach at nearby Elviria, this superb adventure park is just the ticket for anyone up for a challenge. You’ll find six amazing forest adventure circuits, complete with zipwires, rope ladders and climbing walls at various levels to suit all ages from 4 upwards and all levels of fitness. Safety harnesses are provided, along with plenty of advice and encouragement from the park staff and your entrance ticket offers three hours on the circuits of your choice.

Water Parks

Aqua Arena

Not your typical water park, Aqua Arena is in fact a huge inflatable assault course moored in the sea just outside Marbella at Golden Beach, Elviria, during the summer months. Fabulous, supervised fun for children and adults alike, the course offers a chance to challenge friends and family to leap, bounce, slide and splash your way to the finish. Children under 8 must be accompanied by an adult and sessions last an hour.

The old town

At the heart of Marbella’s Old Town is the delightful Plaza de los Naranjos (Orange Tree Square), its charming alfresco restaurants shaded by leafy orange trees. The surrounding buildings are full of character, many dating from the 15th and 16th centuries and with a blend of Arabic, Gothic and Renaissance architecture. From here you can wander down numerous cobbled streets to discover dozens of individual boutiques, taps bars and cafés.

Churches / Cathedrals

Iglesia de Santa María de la Encarnación

This magnificent cathedral dates back to 1485 and was beautifully restored after being damaged during the Spanish Civil War. With three naves, numerous smaller chapels, a breathtaking gold altar and stunning arches, this is a wonderful place to visit, especially if you are lucky enough to hear the spectacular grand organ, one of the largest in Spain, in action.

Other Places of interest

Avenida del Mar

This broad pedestrianised area between the old town and the beach is laid with attractive yellow marble and devoted to ten magnificent bronze sculptures by Salvador Dalí, including Don Quixote, Greek legend Perseus and the Roman god Mercury. There are also two sculptures by Eduardo Soriano along with some beautiful fountains and benches where you can sit awhile and admire the art.

Paseo Maritimo

This lovely coastal promenade, lined with palm trees, stretches all the way to Puerto Banus, with some 2 kms of the pathway paved with marble. There are bars, boutiques and restaurants offering all manner of cuisines along one side while walkers, cyclists, joggers and skate-boarders get to savour the wonderful sea views, especially at sunset, on the other. You’ll find free exercise areas, children’s trampolines and playgrounds and often street musicians and sand sculptors along the way.

Puerto Deportivo, Marbella

Located on Marbella’s paseo maritimo (promenade), Puerto Deportivo is a delightful place to sit and watch the nautical comings and goings of sleek yachts and motorboats moored at the marina. It’s packed with restaurants, bars, cafés and even a children’s playground, so whether you’re visiting with a young family or on a night out with friends, you’ll find plenty of choice.
