Marbesa Villa Holiday Guide
Marbesa is a wonderful, beautifully kept beachside resort, just over 30 minutes drive from Malaga airport, on Spain's stunning Costa del Sol. It is situated between Cabopino and Elviria and has a stunning, safe beach. This is a lovely haven to enjoy a relaxing holiday, while still having the excitement of major resorts close by, including Marbella and Puerto Banus, a 20 minutes away and easily reached by car or bus. For the sporty types tennis is available close by and there are several amazing golf courses within a 10 minute drive, including the Santa Maria and the Rio Real.
There are many water activities available at the nearby Cabopino and Don Carlos/Nikki beaches. One of the qualities that makes Marbesa such an enchanting place to stay is its lack of shops. Of course there are plenty close by, such as in Elviria and for the serious shopper, there are the delights of Marbella. However if markets are on the 'to do' list, then you must visit Puerto Banus, held every Saturday. The array of goods on offer is staggering and you will be expected to haggle, which all adds to the fun.
The evenings in Marbesa can be spent dining at wonderful beachfront restaurants; the sunsets are amazing. Look out also for the restaurant by the Moorish watch tower, which serves an international cuisine. For a change, head into Cabopino where the beach nightlife is lively and there are some excellent restaurants to be found around the lovely old harbour. If nightclubs and live music bars are on the menu, then Marbella and Puerto Banus are happy to oblige, with chic and trendy bars and clubs, through to great Irish pubs.
If you are dreaming of a holiday villa in a quiet location, with plenty of greenery and a lovely beach, then Marbesa will exceed expectations and is perfect for all the family.
