whitehouses-marbella-guideA highlight for any type of traveller who goes to Marbella is a browse through the ‘white towns’, a series of whitewashed towns high up in the Spanish hills, all with their own charm.

Lanjarón is an appealing day spa town renowned for its ham. Inland from Estepona is preferred Casares, in the Sierra Bermeja. Its cuboid houses tumble downhill in a glorious race to the sea and also the dark-walled Moorish Citadel towers over the landscape.

Estepona, Marbella


canyon-marbella-guideUp in the mountains of Malaga lies the amazing town of Ronda, divided down the center by a 100m canyon, called ‘El Tajo’ that divides the middle ages old part of the community from the 18th century part. Ronda is 60km far from Marbella and also is preferred among day-trippers from the Costa del Sol deemed to visit Hemingway’s favourite city in Spain.

The canyon is extended by three bridges ‘The Roman Bridge’, ‘The Old Link’ as well as ‘The New Bridge.’ The most outstanding of the 3 is ‘The New Link,’ a fancy rock framework standing 120 metres above the canyon floor. Created by the renowned designer Aldehuela, it was lastly finished in 1793 having taken 40 years and several lives to build. You can take an excursion bus to the bottom of the gorge to catch the classic Ronda photo for yourself.

The beach

The Costa del Sol flaunts kilometre after kilometre of sandy beaches, the best which could be found a 10 min drive to the east of Marbella in the Elviria and also Resort Don Carlos areas. The whole time these beaches are beautiful little coastline bars.

Paseo Marítimo


Paseo-MaritimoExtending alongside the coastline is the paved Paseo Marítimo. No holiday in Marbella would be complete without strolling at a leisurely speed along such a boardwalk, particularly to appreciate among the Coast’s incredible sunsets. To seem like a local, head to the paseo on a Sunday when all the Spanish appeared in their Sunday ideal to walk and also chat.
