What is there to do in Marbella20/09/2012
Marbella is about more than just Beach and Golf, that is for sure!
For those of us who spend the majority of our time in Marbella, we know that the variety of life on the Costa del Sol is what keeps us here – year-round! But many a Marbella visitor will come to the area only to lie on the beach that is most directly located to their hotel, the nearest bar and restaurant and perhaps take one or two excursions to the infamous Puerto Banús. Although this is certainly a relaxing way to spend your days in Marbella, there is more to discover.
Tripadvisor.com has its own listing of what Marbella’s top attractions may be. In addition to the classic choices of Beach, Golf and Shopping, Tripadvisor includes items such as Marbella’s Old Town (a collection of historic, winding Andalucian streets that is often overlooked even though it is the heart of true Marbella), Bicycle trails, the Bonsai Museum, true Spanish flamenco and the expansive lakes. We could easily add another 50 items to this current list of 36 Marbella attractions such as the gastronomic delights of the village of Benahavís, the eclectic San Pedro market, the sprawling Parque Paloma in Benalmadena (complete with free-roaming rabbits, ducks and chickens), Safari at Selwo and the cosmopolitan Laguna village with the highly recommended Puro Beach Club. Activities for the more adventurous include stand-up paddle boarding and windsurfing, quad biking and canyoning. And all of these attractions can be enjoyed within only minutes from your apartment or hotel in Marbella.
Whilst many people will tell you that the appeal of owning a Marbella property is the opportunity to enjoy warm, sunny weather 320 days of the year (and, of course, this is true), the real Marbella resident also knows that the true luxury of a home or a holiday in Marbella is the variety of experiences available. Not many places in the world cater for the young, old and families alike and whilst, of course, extreme decadence is always on your doorstep, there is also an abundance of fun and beauty that incurs no cost.
