About the location
Marbella is where you do the Mediterranean in style. This glam resort is the jewel in the Costa del Sol's holiday crown, so it's no surprise that it's a playground for the rich and famous. The marina is a hot spot for sitting in quayside cafes, gazing out at the glossy white yachts and celeb-spotting. When the sun goes down, the famous Golden Mile comes alive with a string of chic restaurants, hotels and exclusive clubs that stretch all the way to neighbouring Puerto Banus. The sweeping palm-lined beaches are the perfect place to work on your tan - the best way to enjoy them is at one of the ultra-exclusive beach clubs, where you can relax, drink and dine in style. Marbella's charming old town is one of the prettiest in Andalucia, with whitewashed buildings and narrow, winding streets dotted with tapas bars and upmarket boutiques. At its heart is Plaza de los Naranjos, a classic Andalucian plaza with a cosmopolitan flair where locals and celebrities rub shoulders over tapas.
