Marbella The Essential
Interesting
Marbella is situated at the end of a bay sheltered by the Sierra Blanca and is the Costa del Sol's largest international resort. Thanks to its superb climate, magnificent beaches, countless tourist facilities, and popularity with well-heeled visitors, this former fishing village has been transformed into a glamorous resort with something for everyone. Despite this growth, it has managed to retain its picturesque old quarter, which is full of traditional Andalucian charm.
