The most famous area of the Costa del Sol is undoubtedly Marbella. It has always been renowned as a popular haunt of the rich and famous from all over the world, and is a well-known as a holiday destination and permanent home for people who want to enjoy the ambience and constant good weather.
Marbella is now a large area made up of a number of smaller towns and resorts. The area stretches from San Pedro to Cabopino (a pretty fishing port in the east).
The centre of Marbella is a cosmopolitan shoppers’ paradise with plenty of high street names and exclusive boutiques. There is also a great choice of bars, restaurants and cafés providing most types of international and Spanish cuisine. You can choose from small bodegas which have great selections of local wines and tapas to upmarket hotels and fine restaurants. If you want to see the traditional side of Marbella then a must-see is the old town or ‘Casco Antiguo’ as it is known locally. At the heart of the old town, once you have wound your way up through the maze of narrow cobbled streets lined with traditional Andalucian houses and boutiques, you will find ‘Plaza de los Naranjos’ or Orange Square. Here you will be surrounded by restaurants and bars laid out under the famous orange trees. Every New Year’s Eve both locals and visitors gather in the square to see in the New Year.
Heading inland, Marbella rises up in to the mountains, the most famous of which is La Concha. There are now numerous luxury new developments in this hillside area, many of which are available through Carrington Estates.
As you exit the centre of Marbella heading west you will reach the Golden Mile, a fine address that is home to some of the world’s elite and royalty. A long this stretch of Marbella as well as finding many fine restaurants, you will see some of the best five star hotels in the area such as the Marbella Club, Gran Hotel Guadalpin and the Puente Romano.
