Marbella occupies an area of land that stretches across forty-four kilometers of coastline of the Penibetico region and is sheltered by slopes of the coastal mountain range. Due to the proximity of the mountains to the coast of Marbella, there is a large gap between the north and south sides, providing great views of the sea and mountain vistas, from every part of the city during your summer holiday trip.
The people of Marbella, over time, have been called different names. These include “marbellero,” and “marbellenses”. In recent times, however, Marbellan residents have been called Marbellis or Marbellies.
There are city walls to walk around as you relax and enjoy the old town of Marbella during your holiday vacation, and two historical suburbs of the city, namely: Barrio Alto, and Barrio Nuevo. The former extends north, and the latter is located in the east of Marbella.
Marbella’s Golden Mile is a stretch of four miles, which begins at the western edge of Marbella city and runs all the way to Puerto Banus.
