Marbella Mini Guide
Lapped by the crystal blue Mediterranean of the Costa del Sol and lazing at the foot of La Concha Mountain is Marbella. The keyword there is beautiful - that's the place and the people! Whether you dream of being rich and want to see how the other half live, or whether you want to spend your own Lotto windfall, this is definitely the place to visit. It's also a popular destination for golfers and those who love all things in/on the water.
Hollywood Stars and Super Cars
Marbella and nearby Puerto Banus are popular destinations for the rich and famous, with many celebrities taking up residence. Today's commercial image can be attributed to a German Prince who was smitten when his luxury car broke down in a then sleepy hamlet. Regular features now include super-charged sports cars, luxury yachts and handbag dogs.
Arrival by air, Land and sea
The nearest airport is Malaga Airport
. After a happy landing onward routes to Marbella, to other areas of the Costa del Sol and further afield are by bus or car (chauffer optional). The suburban train line should extend to Marbella over the next few years. The harbour is a popular stop for cruise liners and numerous yachts and luxury boats are moored at the marina in Puerto Banus. To really make the most of your visit, hiring a car is highly recommended and Rhino has a wide range of models, from economical to high luxury, available to suit your desired level of self-indulgence.
Even the Culture and History is Rich
For those less into materialism and status symbols, there are plenty of historical and cultural adventures in the area. Visit the Arabian wall, the local museum or the old city centre where you will find the oldest church: Iglesia de la Encarnacion. Relax on one of several beaches or take a leisurely stroll amongst the beautiful people at the marina.
What About Shopping and Eating?
Shopaholics beware: with smartness and exceptional taste, comes expense! There are plenty of designer boutiques and outlets to indulge your fancies, particularly at the Andalucian style "old quarter". Prices are high, so you might want to exert a little self-control. There are lots of restaurants, many offering up-market cuisine. The marina is a hot-spot for dining with a fabulous view, all served with a chaser of lively and sophisticated atmosphere as the piano bars and discos of Puerto Banus awaken. A simply beautiful destination!
