Once your flight lands in Malaga, Marbella is just a short hop along the Mediterranean coast. Beyond the shiny newness of its obvious flash exterior lies a pretty whitewashed old town framed by 10th century Moorish castle walls. Here visitors can soak up another aspect of Marbella’s atmosphere by wandering through narrow streets or taking refuge in shady squares. Typically these tranquil spaces come replete with pretty fountains and are flanked by flower-laden balconies, orange trees and bustling cafes. There’s much fun to be had in Marbella and below is a taste of what’s in store for visitors.

Golden Mile club scene

Nowhere is Marbella’s glamour more apparent than on the seafront Golden Mile where its dozens of bars and clubs pulse until the early hours. Extravagantly dressed crowds throng and get their groove on to tunes played by big-name international DJs. Whether R’n’B, disco, house or just chilling out is your thing, you’re bound to have nights to remember along this world-famous nightlife stretch.

Old Town tapas

If all that dancing has worked up an appetite, head to Marbella’s Old Town to chow down on the region’s famous tapas, including succulent olives, fresh bread and a plethora of Spanish cheeses. There are a host of cosy bars tucked away behind the massive wooden doors in this neighbourhood, especially around the vibrant Orange Square, a hugely popular gathering spot for locals and visitors alike, that dates back to 1485. In addition to the numerous tapas spots, there are also plenty of options for fine dining at the city’s many elegant restaurants.

Thanks to its abundance of hopping bars, sophisticated restaurants and legendary nightclubs, Marbella will no doubt continue to fabulously reign over the Mediterranean nightlife scene, as one of Spain’s top destinations.
