Holidays to Marbella bring the bling, with chilled-out days and party-filled nights in this resort of the rich and famous.

Marvellous Marbella

The beach city of Marbella sits on Spain's southern coast, and is famously frequented by suntanned stars. Here, the Costa del Sol's most chic restaurants and fun-loving bars reside, not to mention a 25-kilometre stretch of golden sand. Casco Antiguo, the quaint old town, blends Moorish architecture with flower-strewn balconies.

City that never sleeps

Marbella's nightlife starts to stir about an hour before midnight, when people throng to the glitzy bars of the Golden Mile. Whether you like a casual tipple or an all-hours club, you'll find your happy place here.

Walk in wonder

Stroll peacefully among the fountain-studded squares and Moorish walls of Casco Antiguo, the 10th-century old town, before coming to the Avenida del Marto's Instagram-worthy Salvador Dali sculpture garden beside the sea. Top it all off with a sunny session on the 24-kilometre stretch of golden sand.
