"I finally went to Spain!" Marbella by Durfun

Marbella Travel Guide: 568 reviews and 2,067 photos

A Euromeet was just what I needed!

My Dad always wanted to go to Portugal, and when a Euromeet was planned I thought I could kill 2 birds with one stone, ie catch up with some VTers & accompany Dad to Portugal.

But, I always knew Spain is also special. The fact it's so big kept putting me off, because I would've wanted to see a lot more of it, not knowing where to start 1st.

In the end, started with the South > Andalucia.. Marbella, Ronda, (squeezed in Gibraltar), Granada, Sevilla. Certainly whetted my appetite for more.......

Welcome to Marbella!

What a great sign! Don't you agree? A warm, sunny & 'sea-ful' welcome!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Beautiful Old Town; clean, wide promenade, sunny sunny!
  • Cons:Are there any, except they say August is too hot!
  • In a nutshell:The best of the Concrete Costas, lot prettier than the rest!

    Residencia San Cristobal, sounds like an excellent place to stay. Like Buffet Breakfasts! Some handy transportation tips, like getting around the place in the local Bus.

    It was a pity I missed the second European VT meeting. I'll try not to miss the third one. Ciao!
