Situated on the Mediterranean coast, beneath La Concha Mountain, Marbella is perhaps best-known as a playground for the rich and famous. If you get bored of sunbathing on Marbella’s magnificent beaches, you can visit the old-town, home to the oldest church in the city, the Iglesia de la Encarnación. You may even want to stroll down the Golden Mile, which features the late King Fahad's palace. This stylish Andalucían city hosts a WTA tennis tournament and boasts many excellent golf courses. You can’t go to Marbella without taking a trip to Puerto Banus Marina, where Rolls-Royces and Ferraris meet mega yachts. Marbella’s beaches are rightfully lauded and there are 24 beaches along the 27km of coastline. Several of the beaches carry the prestigious blue flag, that identifies their water quality, services and environmental impact as some of the the best in the world. The Playa de la Fontanilla and Playa Alicante are two of the most popular.
