Things to do

There are several extremely entertaining things to do in Marbella, not simply go to the beach or sample the famous nightlife. Buy a souvenir at the traditional street markets or go hiking, sample the tapas or visit the historic centre and more!

The Casino is without doubt one of the main attractions in Marbella and enjoying a night is something you have to do during your break in the area. Find a games room to test yourself against the Black Jack and Caribbean Stud Poker or try your luck with roulette ... if you prefer something quieter, you have the room with the slot machines.

Going to the Casino is also a good opportunity to end your days visit to Puerto Banús, walking along the Boulevard of Fame and the docks, among the yachts and luxury shops. Puerto Banus is also the perfect place if you like commercial centres and shopping, but especially if you want to go out: beach clubs, nightclubs, bars, pubs ... you choose!

If you love shopping and want to mingle with the locals, you can visit the markets of Marbella and San Pedro de Alcántara.
Return laden with bags, and certainly you may have fun browsing among the stalls.

Visiting the old town is another thing to do during your holiday in Marbella, walking through its streets, squares and viewing the monuments is a pleasure. This visit is mandatory and becomes even more interesting if you decide to sample the local tapas, as in the centre you will find many tapas bars ... a beer and a plate of spanish ham always goes down well.

Marbella also allows you to go hiking and visit the most important towns and villages of the Costa del Sol and Andalusia. You can quickly get to Ronda, Mijas Pueblo, Malaga or Casares, or decide to leave a little early in the morning you can reach Tarifa, Gibraltar, or even Granada, Nerja, Seville and Cordoba for the seasoned hikers. And do not forget to pay a visit to Istan, a village in the Sierra de las Nieves which while not as famous as the other destinations mentioned, it retains an amazing rural charm.

If you do not want to drive, and you would prefer to use a guide to explain everything you need to know about what you see, check out the page devoted to trips/excursions.

There are also many sports and activities to try out in Marbella. From canyoneering down a ravine to rolling down a slope in a huge ball (yes, true!), you will not get bored in Marbella.

In the municipalities of the Costa del Sol there are also many theme parks that is a pleasure to visit with family. In Benalmádena you will find Tivoli World or Selwo Marina, while in Fuengirola there is also the Bioparc, and of course Funny Beach in Marbella, a playground that will appeal to you and your children.
