Marbella beaches

The twenty-seven kilometres of safe sandy beaches along the Marbella coast have been a major attraction for visitors since the 1950s. Marbella itself has 24 beaches to suit all tastes, from the busy central beaches to the quieter exclusive beaches with beach clubs, restaurants and bars. To name just one, since 1992 the Guadalmina beach has held the prized Blue Ribbon award for excellence; although this is by no means the only one, but just one of the beaches of the Costa del Sol capital awarded this Europe-wide distinction, along with the beaches at la Fontanilla, la playa Real de Zaragoza, la playa del Alicate, numerous others …

If you are a watersports enthusiast or intrigued enough to try, we recommend the watersports centre H2Osports, where you can dive, surf, take courses in PADI qualifications and more.
