Description

The municipality of Marbella covers a land area of over 100 square kilometres and is home to a population of over 100,000 inhabitants. Unlike most of the popular tourist destinations in the country, Marbella was home to a fairly large population even prior the expansion of tourism in the 1960s. The city is bustling with life during the summer season when flocks of tourists - mainly from United Kingdom, Ireland, Germany, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates - arrive. It is a popular destination amongst wealthy people, with luxury yachts and cruise ships being quite common in the area.

The history of the town is also believed to date back to the 7th century BC, when several colonies of Phoenician settlements were first established. Marbella is also host to a variety of festivals throughout the year and a number of both privately and publicly managed venues are found in the city to accommodate such events.

In addition to the beaches and numerous museums in Marbella, other places-of-interest that are worth visiting include the Marbella Old Quarter, Avenida del Mar, Beach Fit Marbella, Iglesia Mayor de la Encarnacion, Constitution Park, Puerto Banus Marina, Marbella Club Golf Resort, La Quinta Golf & Country Club, Flamenco Ana Maria, Ralli Museum, Alameda Park and the Museo del Bonsai.
