Despite the fact Marbella happens to be the preferred holiday destination for a host of reality TV stars, the Spanish resort of Marbella is a beautiful place to spend a few days or longer. Marbella is the Spanish equivalent of St Tropez, or in other words a mecca for the rich and famous, but if you look hard enough you will find plenty of Andalucian charm and interesting attractions.
The resort has grown from a small fishing village into the most cosmopolitan destination on the Costa del Sol. The famous marina, a short distance away from Marbella, is full of expensive yachts and every other car in the town is a flash limo with blacked out windows. The Golden Mile between Marbella and Puerto Banus is packed full of 5* hotels and hip nightclubs, but despite the wealth and glamour on display, Marbella has lots of history plus a very pretty OldTown with some lovely Moorish and Andalucian buildings and the famous 'Orange Square'.
Most people visit Marbella to enjoy the beaches, do some shopping and hang out in stylish bars and nightclubs. However there are some very scenic golf courses in close proximity to Marbella if you enjoy teeing off.
Booking car hire in Marbella is the best way to explore the area. Thrifty Marbella travellers will prefer to book their hire car in advance because this will invariably be cheaper. Thrifty may not have any prestige cars or limos in their fleet, but they do have lots of all-purpose vehicles such as small hatchbacks, family saloons and estate cars.

Thrifty fees are very transparent and you don't have to pay for any services you don't need, which leaves you plenty of cash left over to pick up souvenirs and mementoes from your trip to Marbella.
Gibraltar is not too far from Marbella, so take a day trip from Marbella and climb the famous rock. Just make sure you take your passport with you. Or you could take a drive into the mountains and cool off in one of the pretty villages.
Marbella is one of the most expensive resorts on the Costa del Sol, but if you want to hang out with celebrities and pretend you are a lottery winner, this is the place to go!
