Marbella is, almost certainly, the most international municipality of the Costa del Sol. Located approximately 60 kilometers from Malaga, in the summer months its population is multiplied due to the large number of visitors that fill its hotels, and those that have chosen this treasure of the Costa del Sol as a second residence.
Most of the, great international fame, 5 star hotels in the province of Málaga are concentrated in Marbella. For decades it has been the favorite destination of illustrious personalities worldwide for their vacations: royal families from all over the world, leaders and rulers, writers, singers, actors, footballers, etc. Its varied tourist offer, its paradisiacal beaches and party halls, its exclusive shops and the areas that offer great privacy are its main attractions, which continue to place Marbella in the focus of international luxury.
This wonderful combination of coast and mountain is available to enjoy all the alternatives that Marbella offers: virgin beaches, beach bars, the historical character of the old town and its residential areas in a sophisticated environment that marries perfectly with the closeness of its people.
Costa del Sol, Costa del Golf
To speak of Marbella is to speak about golf. Costa del Sol, Costa del Golf was the motto of the Ryder Cup held in Marbella in 1997, the first held in continental Europe and the “local” team captained by Severiano Ballesteros reached the victory. Lovers of this sport will find the perfect paradise for golf, with an offer of almost 20 golf courses (only in the municipality of Marbella), most also completed with options for the practice of other sports such as tennis, paddle or water sports, and health and spa treatments.
