A Winter Skip in Marbella

While Marbella holds the title of one of the most acclaimed Spanish tourist destinations in the world, many consider it an exclusive summer destination. Big mistake. The city hides an open secret…


In winter, Marbella transforms into an oasis of tranquility with average temperatures around 18-21°C, adorned by a radiant sun that caresses the skin. This unique microclimate, a product of its location protected by the Sierra Blanca mountains, makes it an unparalleled winter paradise in Europe.

Relax and disconnect in first-class spas, where you will be pampered with the best treatments. Stroll along the Paseo Marítimo, breathing in the sea breeze and soaking up the sunny atmosphere.
