    Love it here, chilled and picturesque… great to spend an afternoon here in the square drinking good wine and chatting to folk around us… this is a great place that many would over look thinking Marbella is all about the Marina and Puerto Banus… this would appeal to an older crowd or younger cultured couples/friends.

    Great for watching, cars, ships, stores, restaurants, bars, clubs and people with money and without :-)
    In the morning see the sunrise and in the evening the sundown. Great colors.

    Just spend maybe 30 minutes walking around this lovely designed area in Marbella and simply stroll through the free space then cross over the main road past the fountain and through the garden area and then you are in Plaza de Los Naranjos ..if you like authentic Spain, this is a tad touristic.. but its always "nice to sit and watch the world go by " is that a Q for a song ?
    Happy place...If you find yourself in Marbella..
    then visit just for a coffee or a beer or alternatively an al fresco lunch...

    Great place to people watch and enjoy fantastic restaurants on the beach. It gets very busy but quietens on a night time when the place lights up and turns into something special. The only downside is the busy road above which you need to go on to get there.

    I’ve hiked and climbed many places, Patagonia, the Andes, New Zealand, the three peaks in the UK over 24 hours, and more, but La Concha was by far the toughest! Don’t let anyone tell you it’s a few hours, you will need an eight hour day, the entire hike/climb is 95 % rocks and boulders. It’s is steep in places, dangerous and then the drop below is on narrow ledges, a couple of places have chains to help you across. The views all the way are beautiful. If you have bad knees, this may not be for you, otherwise strap the knees up well. The stones are marked to guide you along, but they are poorly marked, you may lose your way, we did, resulting in us taking a more difficult climb up. On return we heard shouts for help in Spanish (Ayuda) we helped two young boys completely lost 2.6km from the exit down below in pine trees, no clue where they were, it very grateful.
    It feels like three mountains, but the summit and views from the top are breathtakingly stunning.
    Tips:
    Do take plenty water
    Do take lunch pack, snacks, some sugary snacks/drinks. You’ll need them
    Do take a sun cap and glasses
    Do wear proper walking shoes, or ankle supported trainers, it’s tough terrain all the way up and down
    Don’t go alone
    Take repellent, the summit has wasps galore, it’s not the place to eat
    Stop to enjoy the views because you’ll be busy looking down trying to navigate the rocks and boulders
    If you get lost retrace your steps to the last marked stone, it worked for us

    This is a great little park in the city centre of Marbella. The benches are of tile in Spanish decor. So pretty to look at. The park has some amazing old trees. It’s clean and most importantly safe park.

    The simple whitewashed exterior hides a beautiful little church. We were able to slip in on a Saturday afternoon as a wedding was ending. Beautiful chapels with richly decorated altars.

    It sits on a small plaza with a fountain and some statues.

    We enjoyed the views of the sea from the board walk. There are several points where you can leave the boards to access a beach. Peaceful walk. Free car park and restaurant nearby.

    Lovely sandy beach, backed by sandunes, with toilets and showers. Free car park was nearly empty but it is November! Boardwalk to the Marina with bars and restaurants along the way

    The fountain located in Alameda Park with tiles on the fountain showing Marbella in various date / time lines. A nice place to visit; walk past and view. Several other attractions near by to view, as well as the old town and nice tapas.
