The Costa del Sol is a destination so varied and full of attractions that one single day or a weekend is not enough to enjoy it all. But if you are cruising and calling on the Costa del Sol, we help you to make the most of your stay: a stay that may be brief, but very intense and truly unforgettable. Welcome to Marbella.
Your cruise arrives to the Port of Malaga. You are landing in the capital of the Costa del Sol and only 1 hour by car, along its spectacular coastline, you get to Marbella. A perfect plan that could start with a little beach in this “Mediterranean pearl”. You can choose from one of its many Blue Flag beaches: El Cable, Casablanca, Artola - Cabopino ...
In Marbella, glamour is in the air… all the time, in every place. Also the beach is a fantastic setting to feel that sophistication. Beaches such as Real de Zaragoza or Los Monteros give you the possibility to enjoy exclusive beach clubs like Don Carlos Beach Club, La Cabane or the famous Nikki Beach, an emblematic establishment characterised by luxury, parties and the desire to have a good time.
From Malaga to Marbella, as through all the Costa del Sol, you will see that golf courses are constantly in the landscape. Marbella boasts nothing less than 16 of the more than 70 courses of the province. If you like golf, get ready because you will find some of the best clubs in the world, such as the Marbella Golf Club, designed by Robert Trent Jones Senior, La Quinta Golf or Rio Real Golf, located by the Mediterranean Sea. But if you haven’t come with enough time to enjoy your favourite sport, don’t worry, you can always play some holes with the "pay and play" system, in Santa Clara Golf or Cabopino Golf, for instance.
Before nightfall, how about crossing the Golden Mile among stunning houses and approaching the exclusive Puerto Banus? Breathe that magical sunset air by the sea and marvel at all kinds of luxury products: yes, this is the time to go crazy about shopping. In Puerto Banus, the boutiques of the leading brands are the perfect complement to the succession of yachts and the parade of luxury cars. A true spectacle.
The taste of a charming town
Back to the centre of Marbella, we will further enrich your experience. Marbella is not just luxury and parties full of glamour… it is also a taste of the sea and tradition. Explore its old town and discover the soul of this old fisherman's village.
We propose you enter in its narrow streets, visit its shops, let yourself be surprised by the corners and squares you will find on your way. The Plaza de los Naranjos is the core of Marbella’s centre. A lovely place where you can sit on a terrace and enjoy the most authentic cuisine. Taste the “porra” (refreshing tomato cream), the “gazpachuelo” (an exquisite white hake soup), the “fritura malagueña” (anchovies, mullets, horse mackerel ...).
The gastronomy of the Costa del Sol is an exciting way to integrate into the local culture. And if you want a taste of the Mediterranean haute cuisine, not far from there you have the Skina Restaurant, a Michelin star in the heart of Marbella.
