If you ask anyone what to do in Marbella, they will surely tell you about the beaches. And the truth is that the beaches are some of the attractions in Marbella that you simply cannot miss. All located very close to the village, Puerto Banus and San Pedro de Alcantara are of the best-known and most-visited, but if you're looking for quieter places to visit in Marbella, you should pay a visit to the Artola Dunes.
The port city is also one of the most famous things to see in Marbella. After a day at the beach, there's nothing better than visiting the historic center, taking a leisurely stroll through the whitewashed streets, and enjoying the wealth of stuff to do in Marbella.
The history of the different civilisations which have passed through the city can be seen in the castle, with its mixture of architectural styles, along with the Town Hall, which was built by the Catholic Monarchs. Also make sure to see the baroque Church of Santa Maria of the Incarnation and the Chapel of San Juan de Dios Hospital. These are just some of the rich historical Marbella attractions.
One of the more unusual things to do in Marbella is to take a walk along the Paseo de la Alameda. Here you can pass along the coast and see ten sculptures by Salvador Dali. Nature lovers can take advantage of the city's great location and go for a trip to the Sierra Blanca, a mountain where walking, one of the most popular Marbella activities for the more physical tourist, is a real pleasure. Along the way you can stop to regain strength in one of the small towns in the area. And before you leave the city you must take a walk along the Golden Mile. It is an area full of great hotels, palaces, and international brand stores.
