The European capital of sun, sand and sex, Marbella on the southern coast of Spain is where the rich, famous and fabulous come to let loose and party.
The European capital of sun, sand and sex, Marbella on the southern coast of Spain is where the rich, famous and fabulous congregate to engage in all manner of sinful activities away from the prying lenses of the paparazzi. After all, the area isn’t dubbed the ‘Costa del Crime’ for nothing.
Sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll are all out on display in Marbella, from the alluring bikini babes strewn across its palm-fringed beaches to the hedonism that goes on in its decadent nightclubs.
It’s no wonder celebrities flock here in droves; Bruce Willis has been spotted mingling with a bevy of beautiful women in its bars, Britney Spears has been snapped ordering a bottle of vodka in one of its most famous nightclubs, and heartthrob Antonio Banderas and his wife Melanie Griffith even have a home here. In fact, they flew all the way from Hollywood just so Melanie could give birth here.
A home away from their Hollywood homes for many of our A-list friends, and a bachelor’s paradise for those single and free to mingle, Marbella has it all: glamour, wealth and power. Allow us to take you on a whirlwind tour of this seaside town and fashonista hotspot.
A trip to Marbella wouldn’t be a trip to Marbella without visiting this legendary port. Dubbed the ‘Port of Abuse’ by many of its heavy-drinking insiders, Puerto Banús is named after its designer (and legendary playboy) Jose Banús, who can be credited for single-handedly putting Marbella on the map.
Elsewhere in the world a day at the beach is all about dressing down and chilling out, but not in Marbella. During the hot summer weekends the cool crowd gather at Nikki Beach Marbella, a branch of the hippest beach resort chain around.
