The 5 Highlights of Marbella
1. A Walk through the picturesque Old Town
This beautiful and unique part of Marbella's city center is where everything started and where the nucleus of today's town was embedded. Dating back to Roman times this establishment was transformed into a fortress during 7 centuries of Arabic domination. The castle built by the Arabs during the 10th century is still well preserved and can be visited during a tour. When Catholic kings took over the city in 1485 they started building the characteristic churches and monuments, which can be seen today. The center with its eye-catchy square called Plaza de Los Naranjos is where the townhall and the most traditional restaurants and shops are located. Marbella Viewings offers this beautiful 2 bedroom townhouse, whose terrace is overlooking the whole old town of Marbella. Click here to discover it.
2. The Marina of Puerto Banús
The beautiful location called Puerto Banús was built in the 1970s and it was born as an extra-size urbanization offering residence-like living with hotel complexes, restaurants, leisure facilities and sandy beaches. The world-famous harbor was inaugurated with a huge party and at that event the most trendy international jetset showed up. Since then, Puerto Banús has been growing steadily and its Marina is today the 4th most expensive harbor in the world. If you are interested in buying a property in Puerto Banús, we have a selection of homes for you here.
3. World-famous Golf Courts
The Costa del Sol is known also as the "Costa del Golf", since some of the world's best golf courts are located in this municipality. From Las Brisas in Nueva Andalucía, to Los Naranjos and Los Arqueros Golf, from Los Flamingos Golf Resort located in the exclusive Villa Padierna to the Paraíso Golf Court, wherever you look you will see green acres and tastefully designed landscapes. If you are interested in a frontline golf property, Marbella Viewings offers this unique project with exceptionally modern units.
4. Family Fun Activities
Turn a family day into an unforgettable adventure visiting the spacious Aquamarina of Mijas, a leisure water park including many pools, slides and other funny activities. This aquapark is located close to Fuengirola, which is situated only 15 minutes from the International Airport of Malaga. The area of Mijas is very popular among foreigners thanks to the big international community living there, including Scandinavian, German and English citizens. The very competitive price of the homes and its closeness to the capital of Malaga turn this location into a strategic and nice place to live in or to buy a second home in. Marbella Viewings offers many well-priced properties in the area of Mijas.
5. A Day on the Beach
The beaches of Marbella are numerous and varied, it doesn't necessarily have to be summer to spend a day on the beach. Thanks to the pleasant climate with 320 days of sun per year, the beaches of Marbella and its surroundings are never empty. The wide range goes from exclusive beach resorts to trendy beachclubs with international Dj sets, from family beaches to even nudist beaches. Many of the Costa del Sol's best restaurants are located along the beachwalks and the ambitious project to complete the pedestrian way from Estepona to Malaga will be accomplished very soon. Especially in the area of Estepona (municipality located 15 km from Marbella's center) there are many well-priced beachside apartments for sale.
