Marbella is a lovely Spanish town with an affluent air, lots of charm, and a steady year round population. There is a well-developed and very pretty seaside promenade lined with bars and restaurants which is a must for a stroll. There is a marina, which is a great place for eating, drinking and partying, as well as a “fishing port” which is famous for its row of traditional fisherman’s cottages specialising in fried fish.
The roads between the sea and the main shopping street (Ricardo Soriano) have lots of residential options, from marble clad developments with highly desirable apartments and penthouses, to more traditional apartment blocks, as well as some great restaurants and bars. The sea and the shopping area is linked by the Avenida del Mar, lined with Dali statues, leading up to a pretty marble paved park with a fountain, shaded by trees and perfumed by flowers.
Ricardo Soriano is a fairly standard high street with shops, supermarkets, banks, cafes and residential blocks, as well as some international brands such as Specsavers. But tucked behind it is Marbella’s hidden treasure – the Old Town. This is a maze of winding streets, whitewashed houses, squares and chapels with charm a plenty. It has been sensitively developed with independent shops, cafes and restaurants to discover and is a joy to wander around, particularly on a warm summer evening.
Behind the Old Town are more peaceful residential areas where you will find schools, post offices, health centres, supermarkets etc. Just off the motorway is the main shopping centre for the area with over 150 shops, a cinema, restaurants and a hypermarket.
It’s great for families and boasts a wonderful restaurant scene with cuisines from all over the world, not to mention several Michelin starred restaurants!
