What to see in Marbella? The ten things to do

Here’s a list with the 10 things to do in Marbella.

Marbella is one of those places where you'll feel like you don't have time for everything, there's so much to see and so much to enjoy that you'll have to make a selection of the best. It's difficult, but here's a list with the 10 things to do in Marbella.

1. Touring the Old Town of Marbella
The Old Town of Marbella with its network of narrow winding streets typical of Andalusia, where you will find shops, art, architecture, small squares flooded with terraces of bars, restaurants and lots of life that give this part of town a unique and charming atmosphere, both during the day, where you can take refuge in the cool of the street, and at night were going out for dinner and a drink is a pleasure.

2. See the Alcazaba and the city walls
Next to the old town, in the historic centre of Marbella, you cannot miss a visit to the majestic Walls of the Castle, which have been declared an Asset of Cultural Interest due to their good state of conservation and their long history, as they date back to the 11th century during the reign of the Caliphs in the Arab period. You can take a walk along the walls as a perfect complement to the visit to the old town.

3. Discover the Avenida del Mar
Don't miss a stroll along this lively avenue that leads out towards the sea between the Alameda and the Paseo Marítimo. The Avenida del Mar is an open-air museum with 10 sculptures by Salvador Dalí. Enjoy them while you stroll or have a drink on one of the terraces. This area is another of Marbella's must-see places if you like lively atmospheres.

4. Visit Puerto Banús
When you think of Puerto Banús, you think of luxury, but if you know how to look for it, you can enjoy this beautiful area of Marbella where there are also places to eat and drink as well as leisure activities for all budgets. Although the most typical thing to do in Puerto Banús is to sit on one of its terraces and simply watch the incredible sports cars, luxury yachts and glamorous people.

5. Stroll through the Alameda Park
Just a few steps away from the Paseo Marítimo you will find the lungs of the city, the Alameda Park. Beautiful ceramic benches where you can sit and disconnect or simply take a pleasant break in the shade. The park is a refreshing green oasis of tranquillity in a city, and is surrounded by bars where you can eat tapas and have a drink.

6. Get to know Marbella's nightlife.
When the sun goes down in Marbella, the lights start to come on and the locals get ready for a spectacular and long night that usually lasts until dawn. One of the nerve centres of Marbella's nightlife is Av del Mar, where you can have dinner and then start with a drink at La Notte or go to one of the many nightclubs such as Opium Marbella Vip Tables, Key Boite, Olivia Valére, Funky Budda or La Suite.

7. Go to Artola Beach in Cabopino
If naturism is your thing and you like nudism, we recommend one of the best nudist beaches on the Costa del Sol, Artola Beach, nestled between dunes, this long beach of fine golden sand is the perfect place to relax and sunbathe. It has been awarded the European Union Blue Flag. There are also restaurants and eateries nearby and a small marina.

8. Spend a day shopping
If you fancy a day's shopping in Marbella you will find several options, if you like to wander the streets and small shops we recommend the old town where you will find the most curious things and lots of souvenirs, but if what you like is to get lost in a shopping centre with air conditioning, we recommend La Cañada Shopping Centre is the largest and also includes cinema and attractions.

9. Enjoy its rich gastronomy
Eat deliciously in any of the many restaurants to suit all budgets. You can't leave Marbella without trying the fresh fish from its beach bars, one of the must-try's of Marbella. But above all without trying the espetos de sardinas (sardine skewers). If what you like is tapas, get lost in the old town, there are plenty of options and if you can afford it, there are three incredible Michelin-starred restaurants.

10. Go to Bounty beach
It's really hard to choose which is the best beach in Marbella, there are so many beautiful beaches, but we can recommend Bounty beach as one of the most fashionable. It is actually called Playa del Cable, but the beach bar Bounty beach has become so famous especially for its parties that the beach is already called by its name. It is in the centre of the city and has 1300m of fine sand with several chill out bars and good restaurants.
