For the expat looking for a small town with a big-city vibe, then they need not look any further than Marbella. Located on the infamous Costa del Sol and renowned for its luxury amenities, famous residents and beautiful beaches, Marbella is a haven for anybody looking to live a life of luxury. In this article, we are going to cover why Marbella is one of the most popular locations among expats.
Is Marbella a good place to live?
Situated between the Mediterranean Sea and the Sierra de las Nieves mountains lies Marbella. The perfect combination of sea and mountain allows the town to have an idyllic climate all year round, never being too hot in the summer nor too cold in the winter.
Great weather is not the only thing that Marbella has to offer. Known as a hotspot for the rich and the famous and those looking to live a life of luxury since the 50s, it is full to the brim with luxury amenities. In Marbella, you can find top class restaurants, the hottest nightclubs and some of the biggest names.
Not only this, but Marbella is very well-connected, both by air, sea and road. With Málaga airport located nearby, other European cities are just a short plane ride away.
Is Marbella safe?
Throughout the years, Marbella has attracted its fair share of people, looking to live a life of luxury and little stress on its golden shores.
Statistics show that in Marbella violent crimes such as robbery and assault are low. Various studies even show that Marbella is just as safe, if not safer, to live in as either Madrid or London.
What to do and see in Marbella
Marbella is full of things to do and see, from its famous blue flag beaches all the way to its flawlessly designed golf courses.
If you love being outdoors, then you will be spoiled for choice, Marbella has over 18 miles (ca. 29 km) of beach. That includes the renowned beaches of El Faro and Rio Verde, national parks and the stunning Sierra Nevada mountain range.
Both old town and Puerto Banús are ideal for an afternoon of shopping, with old town offering a more traditional shopping experience surrounded by beautiful whitewashed houses and vibrant flowers, and Puerto Banús offering a more luxury shopping experience with various top brand names and exclusive restaurants with the best views of the port.
If you like to live an active life full of sports, then Marbella also has you covered. Being located on the coast, the town is full of opportunities to take up a water sport such as sailing or swimming. Alongside all of this, Marbella is also famed for its golfing scene, and has a wide range of golf courses apt for both pros and beginners.
