Marbella Old Town

Marbella Tourist Offices
There are now two offices in Marbella town, the main office is one road  back from the Paseo Maritímo (The Promenade) near the lighthouse and next to the Skol apartment complex.  The other one is in the Town Hall building in a corner of the Orange Square in the old town

If you are driving into Marbella from Málaga then stop under the arch at the entrance to the town and consult the tourist office there or if you are coming up the N340 from Gibraltar, you'll find a tourist office under that arch.

Marbella has a charm and character all of its own and different to any other Spanish town or city.  It has changed greatly especially in the last ten years or so. Although once a quiet fishing village and now a sophisticated resort city with many nationalities living side by side going about their daily life, you will still find the locals using the benches in the Alameda Park!

The beach promenade is wide and clean, and there are always street cleaners busy at work ensuring that any rubbish is disposed of quickly.  Palm trees line and colourful plants line the main road, and the streets are leafy and attractive. 

Parking can be a nightmare especially in summer and it's best to use the car parks to avoid going round and round and then risk getting towed away by the very efficient local "grua" (towaway truck) In case you do get towed away, your car will end up in the police car pound under the football stadium! Don't park on a taxi rank whatever happens and don't argue with the policemen in general!

Eating out is wonderful, prices vary according to establishments obviously, but overall it has to be said that there is something for everyone.  There are many places slightly off the main beach promenade or in the old town for example which are fantastic - let us know if you find a great restaurant or bar which we can add to our list.
