How to Spend 2 Days in Marbella

How to Spend 2 Days in Marbella

With two days in Marbella, you’ve got enough time to enjoy palm-lined beaches and chic bars, and explore the Old Town; you can also take a day trip to the historical cities of inland Andalucia. To get the most from your short stay on the Costa del Sol, here are our top tips.

Day 1: City Sights and Beaches

**Morning:**The best way to tick off Marbella’s highlights is on a sightseeing tour, which typically cover Alameda Park, the sculpture-lined Avenida del Mar, and the Old Town’s plazas and chapels. Or, opt for a Marbella and Puerto Banus tour to discover old Marbella, the Golden Mile, and Puerto Banus’ marina, home to expensive yachts and swanky restaurants.

**Afternoon:**After lunch, hit Marbella’s beaches, which are scattered along its 16-mile (27-kilometer) coastline. Alternatively, explore Andalucia’s rugged countryside and White Villages (Pueblos Blancos) on an electric mountain bike tour that focuses on tapas and wine. Or, take a hiking excursion into the hills to discover Roman ruins and prehistoric caves.

**Night:**Marbella’s locals and party crowds play hard at night, so follow their cue and enjoy some high-octane nightlife. Glam up with a makeup masterclass from professional makeup artists and enjoy a decadent night out in Marbella’s bars and clubs. 

 

Day 2: Explore Wider Andalucia

**Morning:**Granada’s Alhambra is within day-tripping distance of Marbella, making it a must-visit. Book a private trip to this UNESCO-listed palace for undivided attention, or visit Cordoba to experience its old-world streets and UNESCO-protected Mezquita Cathedral-Mosque.

**Afternoon:**Spend the afternoon exploring your chosen destination. At the Alhambra, admire the elaborately carved stonework, patios, and gardens as your guide chronicles the palace’s Moorish rulers. In Cordoba, view the multi-arched Mezquita and explore historical enclaves such as the Jewish Quarter.

**Night:**After a busy day’s sightseeing, ease back into Marbella’s nightlife scene. Sip a cocktail overlooking the yachts at Marbella’s marina (Puerto Deportivo), stroll the promenade for pre-dinner tapas, and then hit the Old Town’s cobbled plazas for dinner.
