Best Things To Do In Marbella, Spain Boat Tour

Nestled on the coastline, south-west of Malaga, Marbella is an incredible place to visit whilst on a trip to Spain. Not only is the coastline stunning, but there are heaps of the best things to do in Marbella dotted all across the city. It’s incredible. 

Now, you can easily visit Marbella whilst driving between the best places in the south of Spain and stay for a few days. That being said, you can also have Marbella as your main destination. On my last visit, I stayed for around a week and rented a car to explore some of the wider area, too. 

So, to help you get the most out of your time visiting Marbella, I’m sharing my top places you don’t want to miss. Have the best time visiting Spain. 

1.) Sailing the Marbella coastline

One of the things that makes Marbella so special is the incredible coastline that’s totally pristine to explore. 

Before arriving in Marbella, make sure to book this dolphin-watching and sailing trip from the harbour itself. You’ll spend around 2 to 3 hours navigating the Spanish coastline and you might even spot the northern tip of Africa or Gibraltar in the distance. 

Just be sure to book this tour before arriving in Marbella. Tickets sell out fast and you don’t want to miss it during your trip.

Just shy of Marbella Harbour, Puerto Banus beach is really easy after having lunch in the harbour area itself. Not only is it convenient to visit, but it’s actually really lovely too. 

Once here, make sure to hire one of the sun loungers and stop by Aurora Beach Banús for cocktails and sangria. Best of all, the waters surrounding Puerto Banus Beach are nice and calm. However, always take extra care if you’re visiting with children.

Not too far from Venus Beach, Alameda Park is so easy to visit and totally lovely to visit if you’re looking for a more chilled day. 

Dating back to the 18th century,  Alameda Park features a main promenade where you can stroll or even head across for a little picnic. Yes, it might not be the largest park to visit; but totally lovely nonetheless.

Afterwards, head into the Old Town of Marbella and visit Taberna La Niña del Pisto. Their tapas and Salmorejo (similar to gazpacho) from the area are so good.
