Marbella is one of the main cities and the main cosmopolitan beach resort in Andalusia, Spain. Over the last few decades, it has increasingly become a more and more important and sought out holiday destination as its location on the southern coast of the country means Marbella enjoys a year round warm climate and spectacular views of the Mediterranean. In addition to its fantastic location and climate, Marbella has become a fantastic hybrid of local Spanish culture and traditional atmosphere and modern international facilities, with all of the amenities one would expect from a globally renowned tourist destination. Marbella has about 116, 234 inhabitants, but the population swells during the summer months as people fly in from all over the world to spend time in the city. Although an incredibly modern town, Marbella is still full of a wealth of historical sights including the rustic old city centre which is home to much of the city`s Spanish charm and oldest buildings. In particular the Encarnation`s Church, the oldest church in the town, is worth taking note of. Other main sights in the city include the many pieces of art that line the streets and the Golden Mile which features the Guadalpin Marbella Spa Hotel and the late King Fahad`s palace. Marbella and the nearby beach resort Puerto Banus are some of the classiest areas of the Malaga province and the Golden Mile is representative of the wealth in the area. However, there are also a lot of lower priced top-quality restaurants and cafes across the city, most of which offer traditional Spanish fayre and locally-sourced seafood. Hotels are also mixed, with a large amount of top end accommodation, such as the Guadalpin Banus Gran Hotel, but there are also a variety of cheap hotels for those on a strict budget. However, the expensive and quality reputation and atmosphere of this place isn`t all negative as the up-market nature of this area means that crime is fairly low, making Marbella a relatively safe family destination. As Marbella is located on a sea front, it makes for a fantastic beach holiday but is also great for more active families who prefer activities to just soaking up the sun and enjoying the clear waters of the Mediterranean. Water-sports are a plenty with water skiing, banana-boating, jet-skiing and scuba diving facilities all on offer. Due to the amount of celebrity guests, such as Alan Sugar, Sean Connery and Joan Collins, and also the important businessman that visit, Marbella is also home to a lot of premium golf courses, with family packages and lessons involved. Marbella is also the perfect base to spend some time in the famous Spanish ski resort Sierra Nevada which is only an hour and a half away. If you are looking for an educational element to your family holiday, there are also language schools where you can spend three hours a day learning Spanish, and then put it into practice during activities in the afternoon. Other potential great trips out could be to the Puerto Banus which is a stunning yacht marina with top-notch seafood restaurants and beautiful seafronts. You could also visit the British Colony of Gibraltar, climb the rock and see the world famous Barbary Apes. Whether looking to enjoy some sun, sea and sand, or whether you want a challenging holiday doing lots of activities and enjoying sightseeing, then Marbella could very well be your perfect holiday destination.
