Marbella is the most glamourous tourist city on the Costa del Sol, so when it comes to shopping, Marbella stands out as a must-see destination. This cosmopolitan city is one of the world’s best cities for shopping due to the quality and diversity of its products. Marbella shopping is a real pleasure, a true tourist activity, especially if we are talking about Puerto Banús shops or those you can find around the historic centre or its shopping centres. In addition to Marbella shops, don’t forget its markets, since it is always a pleasure to hunt for little treasures among its stalls. Conversely, if what you are looking for is luxury, the place for you is Puerto Banús. More specifically, on the pier you will find all the big designers, especially fashion designers.
Shopping in the capital of the Costa del Sol is the perfect excuse to get to know its streets and people better, a different way of experiencing and appreciating this unparalleled locality, though it must be said that your wallet may not agree.
