Spain’s answer to St. Tropez – a holiday to Marbella
A holiday to Marbella gives you the chance to see how the other half lives. Think tanned bodies, white yachts, dazzling jewellery and cocktails – shaken not stirred. Marbella oozes glitz and glamour and it’s not afraid to tell the world that it is the chic place to visit in Costa del Sol. Socks and sandals are a definite no-no here, holidays in Marbella are about looking good and feeling great. Keep your autograph book handy because you’re about to mingle with the rich and famous. Not just popular for its own merits, holidays to Marbella are great for holidaymakers who want to see more than just one destination. Day trips are easy to Malaga, Puerto Banus and Mijas so you can have a sneak preview of everything Costa del Sol has to offer. Release your inner night owl in the clubs of Malaga, get away from it all in the traditional village of Mijas or head to Puerto Banus for some more celebrity spotting.
If you can’t beat them….
Although Marbella has been glammed up for its influx of tourists, surprisingly it has kept a good deal of its authentic charm. There’s a few high rises, inevitably, but a short walk into the old town and you feel like you’re getting a glimpse into the traditional Spanish way of life. The people are friendly, the streets are cobbled and everywhere has that warm, glowing feeling – although that could be the sangria. Style and fashion are of upmost importance in the city, making holidays to Marbella ideal for those hoping to get a little bit of European retail therapy. Explore the narrow winding streets and you’ll stumble across an independent boutique, take a wrong turn and there’s a high-end designer. However you decide to do your shopping, rest your weary feet at one of the plaza bars. Order a fancy sounding drink from the menu and watch the world go by.
