Why go to Marbella

A Spanish St Tropez, Marbella has it all: beautiful beaches, fantastic bars and some seriously swanky boutiques. It’s not hard to see why it’s regarded as one of Europe’s top beach destinations, and over the past 60 years (the first dedicated beach hotel opened in 1943), it’s transformed into a family-friendly paradise which combines the best bits of Europe’s chicest beach resorts with oodles of old-school glamour.

Located on one of the sunniest stretches of Spain's Mediterranean coastline, the town is perfectly situated for exploring the surrounding villages, as well as the region’s luxurious resorts, beautiful forests (including the famously fragrant El Juanar forest, to the north) and sandy coves. It’s also a quick 45 minutes to get from Marbella to Malaga International Airport (AGP).

Fancy splashing some cash? Head to the Puerto Banus marina, with its neat rows of beachfront boutiques, including Louis Vuitton, Dolce & Gabbana and Jimmy Choo. This is where you’ll find some of the region’s best restaurants, whether it’s the Oak Garden and Grill, with its delicious seafood platters and enormous steaks (we recommend the Galician fillet) or D-Wine, with its Bible-like menu of over 5,000 wines. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Puerto Banus is also a brilliant people-watching spot, and despite the super yacht-packed harbour and endless designer boutiques, you don’t need to be a billionaire to enjoy it. Restaurants such as the Hard Rock Café and the Pasta Factory (nab a spot on the latter’s roof terrace if you can) are both incredibly affordable and family-friendly.
