We enjoyed promenading in the evenings, taking in the relaxed atmosphere while deciding which of the many restaurants to dine in. Nice sea views up and down the coast from a well maintained pavement interspersed with interesting Dali sculptures.

I spent a couple of hours admiring the Dali sculptures. It's easily accessible and there are some reasonable cafes in the area. My only concern lies in the fact that there is "too much going on" in the avenue, some of which detracts from the enjoyment of the sculptures.

Just what you'd expect really, lots of tourists and the usual stuff. Clean and well maintained but no real charm.

Start in the Main Street through the park near where the horse drawn carriages park and come to a lovely open area leading down to the main promenade. Pause and consider the amazing Salvador Dali sculptures, they are amazing! Carry on down to the Avenida del Mar and go to the right. It is lovely walk, best in the early... More

Great sculptures , plenty of seats to sit and soak up the vibe. Very popular place to visit and the far end is overlooking the sea. Don't forget your 📷

There was a real buzz, much to see, marina, beach activities for kids, restaurants, people. We are not beach goers and it was a bit to built up for us but it was interesting for a walk.

Even if not an art fan it is worth taking a walk to view the bronze statues. There are cafes that border the avenue that offer local fare.

A lovely walk down to the paseo though various sculptures by Dali all of which are interesting and worthy of study and debate.

The plethora of sculptures here is amazing. Awesome for fans of Salvador Dali Avenida del Mar has plenty of parking, making it a great place to park, see the sculptures, then walk over to Marbella Old Quarter. The beach is not the cleanest, but the stroll is nice. Gets 4 stars for the sculptures, 3 for the waterfront.

This fantastic sculpture park with works by Salvador Dali. This works are modern and exciting, not outrageous, as part of his production. It is a very well apointed area for the art. This is a must in Marbella.
