The sophisticated resort of Marbella is undoubtedly the most charismatic coastline on the Costa del Sol. Sheltered by the rolling hillside of Sierra Blanca, Marbella is best known as a glamorous resort town popular with the rich and famous.
Marbella's spectacular beachfront is the perfect place to unwind and absorb the splendid year-round sunshine before enjoying the resort's vibrant nightlife. Despite its reputation for hosting lively evening affairs, it also has a traditional old town with whitewashed alleyways and a fantastic selection of quaint bars, coffee shops, boutique hotels and restaurants serving a smorgasbord of cuisines.
Costa Del Sol and Torremolinos offer around 300 to 320 guaranteed days of bright sunshine annually with a mean temperature of 18 degrees centigrade, and peak temperatures in high season (June to September) up in the late 20s centigrade. The cooling breezes on the Mediterranean coast take the edge of high temperatures, making for perfect family beach holiday resort conditions.
