Travelers seeking sunshine in the spring are increasingly turning their attention to the Spanish city of Marbella. This southern Spanish territory is well-known among golfers and avid shoppers.

It is also a real hotspot for aristocrats, celebrities, and wealthy individuals and their luxury yachts. According to tourism experts, in addition to stunning beaches and marinas, there is also incredible food and drink, fantastic shopping, museums, and art galleries, as Metro writes.

Things to do in Marbella:

  • Explore the old town and the most famous square, Plaza de los Naranjos (Orange Tree Square), which was built between 1487 and 1493.
  • Visit the Iglesia de la Encarnación (Church of the Incarnation), which is the largest church in Marbella - it is one of the most popular attractions in the area on Tripadvisor.
  • See the walls of the Castillo de Marbella (Marbella Castle). The castle itself no longer exists, but you can walk around the massive walls and imagine what it was like in the 9th century.
  • For nature lovers, the Parque de la Alameda opens its doors, where you will find a lot of greenery and a historic fountain decorated with sculptures.
  • Art lovers have the opportunity to see sculptures created by the famous artist Salvador Dali on Avenida del Mar (Sea Avenue).
  • Add the Museo Ralli Marbella to your itinerary to see collections of contemporary art from Latin America and Europe.
  • For shopping enthusiasts, the Mercadillo de Marbella is a street market where you can find handmade accessories, clothing, and home goods.

Experts say that although you can visit Marbella at any time of the year, in October and November, the temperature is more comfortable in the mid-twenties compared to 31°C in the height of summer. Both lovers of noisy parties and those who prefer cozy tranquility will find a home in this city.

We would like to add that tourists will be able to travel between Marbella and Malaga in less than an hour in the future, after passengers, engineers, and railway experts proposed a new train route last month that will simplify the connection between the two regions. The trip could last as little as 45 minutes, giving passengers plenty of time to reapply SPF before heading to the beach again.

The best beaches in Marbella:

  1. Playa del Real de Zaragoza
  2. Cabopino beach
  3. Playa de la Fontanilla
  4. Playa de Nagüeles
  5. Playa Nueva Andalucía
  6. Playa de la Vibora
  7. Playa don Carlos
