For hot summer days…
One of the biggest attractions of Marbella for tourists, holiday-homeowners and residents alike are the long, hot summer days.
A seasonal beachside resort, the whole town thrives in the warm summer season. Yet it is not to everyone’s taste to lie out soaking up the rays all day – so what to do in Marbella if you’re not a sun worshipper or want some variation?
Just because the temperatures are rising doesn’t mean that you have to miss out on your favourite sports.
Shady trails in the pine-tree clad mountains behind the coast are ideal for cyclists to blow the cobwebs away, or follow winding dirt tracks to some of the hidden rock pools known only to locals, and cool down in their crystal-clear depths.
Even if you’re not a fan of sun-bathing, the beach can be a fun location for a wide range of activities available both for thrill seekers and those who take life at a slower pace.
The most adventurous can try out the Flyboard – a James Bond-esque skateboard that hovers the rider high in the air thanks to jets of water propelled from underneath. Not for the fainthearted!
Take it easy
A far more tranquil way of enjoying the sea is by kayak or canoe, which can be rented from most beaches along the coast.
Heading parallel to the shoreline, you really get a feel for the awesome beauty of this part of the world, with La Concha acting as a benevolent backdrop to the golden sands laid out at its feet.
For a real change of pace, take a boat trip to search for dolphins in the Straits of Gibraltar. There are few experiences as moving as watching these beautiful creatures accompanying the boat as they play and jump alongside, creating memories few will forget in a hurry.
