This is one of the most exclusive and glamorous spa cities in the world; a summer resort for the international jet set. Many people compare the luxurious marina of Puerto Banús with Saint Tropez.

Glamour in the sand

The Sierra Blanca mountains protect 27 kilometres of sandy beaches bathed by the Mediterranean. A good way to start discovering Marbella is in the morning with breakfast on Avenida del Mar, which connects Alameda Park to the seafront promenade with its 10 bronze sculptures by Salvador Dalí. Alameda Park is at the entrance to the old town, whose central hub is the Plaza de los Naranjos. Surrounded by white Andalusian-style houses, everything in this square revolves around its Renaissance-style fountain. Calle Ancha is a beautiful and elegant 19th-century street with houses with large balconies full of flowers. The Plaza de Santo Cristo is home to the best flamenco performances in the city.
