Marvellous Marbella

The restaurants in Puerto Banus aren't all that - for lunch I recommend you continue to closeby Marbella.

Currently Marbella is logistically somewhat challenging, owing to the fact that you can't get there by train. It is currently the only city with population over 100 000 that isn't accessible by train. For a long time there have been talks about extending the C1- line operating between Malaga and Fuengirola to Marbella, but it looks nothing will ever come out of those plans. Because of the heavy building going on all over the Costa, majority of the tracks would have to be built underground which means that the costs would soar so high Andalusia can't afford it.

Marbella in itself isn't much different from the other towns on the coast, but it's Old Town is beautiful. It's a wonderful place to lose yourself in the sleepy atmosphere of the charming little alleyways.

The Old Town in Marbella has a bohemian vibe. There are a lot of artisan shops as well as shops specialized in textiles and artefacts brought over from North Africa just across the bay.
