Expect to see golf buggies galore as soon as you touch down as challenging fairways are one of the main attractions that bring visitors flocking, especially when holidaying in Marbella. Many of the five-star hotels can be found in close proximity to at least one or two, with some even boasting their very own. The leisure facilities cater wonderfully to families and couples wanting to relax thanks to the world-class spas and award-winning eateries on offer. What can be better than unwinding with a cocktail in hand, taking in the panoramic sunset after a facial?

Some of the resorts are also located on the beachfront so if you want to be mere metres from golden stretches and the warm Mediterranean Sea, make sure to book well in advance as these go quick. Adrenaline-junkies are sure to be in their element here too, with an abundance of water sports on offer at many of the beaches in Torremolinos, Fuengirola, and Toree de Mar. Whether you want to jet ski, snorkel or scuba dive, you’ll get the opportunity while finessing, or picking up a new skill to revel in world-class scenes. Marbella is one of the busiest cities, and a fabulous base should you want sun, sand and golf courses all in one place. Here, Puerto Banus marina is nearby, so you can marvel at the super-yachts, bars and boutiques that call the tranquil waters home.
