On the elegant southern coast of Spain, vacationers flock to the sun-drenched Andalusian port of Marbella year-round, thanks to its inviting weather and well-groomed beaches. Spend an evening strolling through the Old Quarter, marked by ancient Moorish ruins, cobblestone streets, and charming plazas housing fine restaurants and boutiques. Marbella’s claim to fame is its beaches: El Fuerte and La Fontanilla are the two most popular. The sleepy town is also an excellent jumping-off point for outdoor recreation, such as canyoneering, rappelling, and ATV tours, in the Sierra Blanca foothills.
Hikers who make it to the top of this nearly 4,000-foot summit will be rewarded with panoramic views of Marbella and the Mediterranean.
This 18th-century park sits between Marbella’s Old Quarter and the sea; its main draw is the large Virgen del Rocio ceramic fountain bubbling in the park’s center.
Grab a table and linger over drinks beneath a canopy of leafy orange trees in this Old Quarter plaza, whose name translates to "Court of the Orange Trees."
Near a peaceful marina between Marbella and Benalmádena, the beach at Puerto Cabopino continues to receive upgrades. Natural, protected dunes and clear water make for a family-friendly outing.
The Costa del Sol area prides itself on its preservation of a historic legacy. Also known as Casco Antiguo, the Old Quarter spans narrow streets and small plazas that enclose authentic cafes and family-owned restaurants.
The bustling port known as Puerto Banús is located in a marina in Nueva Andalucía and known for its nightlife. Bars and restaurants line the coast and lavish beach parties and live music are commonplace.
The weather in Costa del Sol is best described as mild, with locals sporting shorts even in the winter months. Autumn and spring have light winds but the area enjoys more than 300 days of sunshine annually. An ideal month for swimming in the sea is August, when the average temperature near the shore is a warm 73 degrees.
