7 fabulous things to do in Marbella
1) An hour’s drive from Marbella you can find the rock of Gibraltar and taking a boat around the rock you will see a pod of 20 and to 30 dolphins and sometimes they bring their babies too. How incredible does that sound!
2) Marbella is the place for golf enthusiasts there are over 100 golf courses and a whole host of golf tournaments,
3) Culture and history abound – The oldest church in Marbella, the Iglesia de la Encarnacion it dates from the 16th-century and is really ornate with a variety of architectural styles throughout. Well worth a visit for history buffs and architectural lovers too.
4) Canyoning is really popular in Marbella and a great way to investigate the Marbella nature and wildlife. Not sure what it is? Well, canyoning involves making your way down a river gorge, by slipping and sliding down the natural water slides, jumping into deep natural pools, and abseiling down waterfalls and swimming..so not for the fainthearted but a truly fabulous way to explore.
5) The weather is great. Marbella is on the Costa del Sol on Southern Spain’s Mediterranean coast so it has lots of warm weather across Spring through to Autumn. Marbella is sheltered by the Sierra Blanca mountain range and this gives it slightly warmer temperatures too. Toasty!
6) A visit to the La Concha mountain is a real treat. It stands 1200 metres above sea level. It is absolutely perfect for hiking and watching the sunset. La Concha means shell in Spanish and the mountain is so-called because of its shell shape.
