7 Highlights of Marbella

Find out for yourself why the Spanish town of Marbella, with both Andalusian and Moorish influences alike, is the Costa del Sol's top tourist destination.

Ermita de Santiago XV

Dating from the 15th century, this church is the oldest religious building in Marbella.

Golden Mile

King Fahd's palace and some upmarket hotels are just some of the fancy buildings you can spot as you walk down this street on the way to Puerto Banus.

Puerto Banus

Visit luxurious shops and restaurants at this 1970s marina, a few miles just outside central Marbella, for a swanky Mediterranean experience.

Dali sculptures

See some of the master of Surrealism's signature unusual but brilliant sculptures down on Avenida del Mar!

Buggy Safari

Experience the rugged red countryside surrounding Marbella, traversing deserts and rivers!

King Abd el Aziz Mosque

This mosque was named after the first king of Saudi Arabia and is built in the Andalusian style - there are similar buildings in Fuengirola and Malaga!

Day trip to Morocco

Finally, if you've exhausted all that Marbella has to offer, just jump onto a ferry and see another continent. There are frequent day trips available to Tangier, Morocco.

Planning Your Marbella Visit

Don't forget your passport

If you are going to Morocco or even just to the nearby British colony of Gibraltar, you are subject to border control - don't forget your passport.

Stay safe in the sun

It's hard to forget that the sun is shining, but remember to reapply sunscreen every hour to avoid nasty burns.

Dress code

If you are visiting any places of worship, Islamic or Catholic, be sure to dress modestly as a sign of respect.

Drinking age

The drinking age in Spain is 18, but children may be allowed to drink wine in restaurants with their parents.

What People Are Saying About Marbella

a good geography and history class combined

a really great tour with a lot of things that school doesn't teach you, combined with a great atmosphere from Paco and Paul - the local guide in Gibraltar. If you have the chance for a nice sunny day, then the view is more than breathtaking from up there, and take care with the monkeys :D

Excellent day, an overview of the important landmarks of the city

The tour is a whistle stop of most of the landmarks in Saville. Our tour guide Paco with a dry sense of humour made the 2 hour journey a little entertaining. The tour focused on the cathedral which was magnificent. Generally a good day & the weather was kind, the rain ceased to allow us to walk about comfortably.

Full-Day Tour of Seville from Costa del Sol Reviewed by Christina, 10/14/2016

Great visit, enjoyed by everyone. Loved the Rock tour

Our party of nine adults had a busy but very enjoyable day on the rock. Time was allocated for shopping before and after the rock tour, although the time after was curtailed somewhat due to the rock tour over-running. The rock tour itself was great, especially seeing the monkeys. Our guide was very courteous and provided some well received comedic moments. Overall, everyone enjoyed the day and returned happily to Spain with their many purchases.

Lovely trip on a top quality coach and top quality tour guide.

The coach arrived at the pick up point promptly and we had a warm welcome from the guide. The coach was clean, well maintained and air conditioned. The journeys to and from Gibraltar were unremarkable, which in itself is a major compliment.

Gibraltar Full-Day Shopping Tour from the Costa del Sol Reviewed by Jacqueline, 07/10/2016

Well organised. The guide Lucy at Alhambra excellent.

Have to admit it is not an easy task to deal with a group with four different language speaking people. Nati, Julian's guide was so good. I invite people all over the world to come and visit the Red Fort, Agra Fort and THE Taj Mahal and enjoy the creation, the art and artisans skill. Believe me they are extraordinary. I only hope we could organise our tours so efficiently and with educated proffessional guides.
