Marbella is the No. 1 holiday destination in Europe amongst the international jet-set crowd and the very rich and famous. Often referred to as Spain’s equivalent of Saint-Tropez in France, the area of the Costa del Sol and many of the beach clubs here are well known for their beauty, their beach parties and their greatest luxury. The start of the beach club season is now!
At Marbella’s many Beach Clubs, you can spend the entire day lounging on a sunbed with a cocktail, followed by an evening of luxurious dining and finally dancing through the night at some of the best parties on the Costa del Sol.
Although there are many beach bars (chiringuitos) along the beaches of Andalucia, a Beach Club is something more. A Beach Club typically has a swimming pool although is usually located directly on the beach with sun loungers to offers their guests the best of both worlds. Although, they are called ‘clubs’, you cannot become a member of a beach club. For some beach clubs there is an entrance fee, however for others you have to reserve a sunbed. Beach Clubs will usually charge a fee per sunbed, but will provide towels and water. They normally also have a restaurant and bar.
Those Beach Clubs that do not belong to hotels are normally only open during the summer season, from Easter until late September, but check the pages for individual opening times.
