Parks and nature in Marbella

Top nature recommendations from locals

Beach
“Marbella's beaches: The Marbella coastline stretches from Cabopino through to San Pedro de Alcantara. 26 kilometres of golden sandy beaches, shelving down to the calm Mediterranean Sea. To the east, Cabopino port and beach are home to a couple of laid-back and economical Chiringuitos (Beach Restaurants), the beach right next to the port has sunbeds for hire and is a popular kite surfing spot. As you move west away from the port, the beach becomes a nudist spot. Head west to the popular area of Elviria and the famous Nikki Beach and then on to one of the most beautiful and natural stretches of beach, which joins Elviria and the urbanisation of El Rosario. Funny Beach just outside of Marbella, is an amusement park on the beach, with go karts, parasailing, water scooters and a restaurant bar. Marbella town’s beaches are well equipped, with water sports facilities, beach restaurants line the golden sands, cooking sardines on the spit, the waters are calm, ideal for family beach days. Head further west into Puerto Banus and you have a mix of family beach zones and hedonistic beach clubs, where you’ll likely bump into a few celebrities and paparazzi. Finally, you reach San Pedro de Alcantara, at the western limits of Marbella. Here the wide, palm-fringed beaches are more laid-back, backed by a beautiful promenade and restaurants.”

“El Parque Pinar de Nagüeles se encuentra en la urbanización Sierra Blanca de Marbella, en la zona conocida como Nagüeles. Es un sitio perfecto para pasar un día en contacto con la naturaleza con toda tu familia: aquí encuentras barbacoas, mesas y todo lo que necesitas para tu picnic. Hay también dos bares, además de servicios públicos y aparcamiento. Desde el centro de Marbella puedes llegar en coche muy rápidamente, o bien venir con el transporte público, la L-7 no deja muy lejos del parque. ”

Beach
“La Playa de la Fontanilla, es quizás una de las más concurridas de Marbella en verano, tanto por visitantes como por vecinos del pueblo dada su ubicación y los servicios que ofrece. La playa está casi en la zona final del Paseo Marítimo en dirección para Estepona.En el tramo del Paseo Marítimo donde está, hay buenos restaurantes, chiringuitos y tiendas de souvenirs. La arena es gorda y oscura, eso se debe a que durante el invierno parte de ella desaparece por los embates de las olas, siendo repuesta después. Lo mejor quizás es su ubicación, ya que está prácticamente en el centro de Marbella, y puedes prescindir de coger el coche si te apetece andar un poco.”

“This is the main bus station of Marbella. Another way to get to the Airport is by using an express bus for less than 10 euros. It is very convenient, but do check the bus schedule before going on Avanzabus.”
