Local Flavours

Local Information

Get to the heart of Marbella and the Costa del Sol by experiencing life as the locals live it, from food to flamenco. After all, it's the local flavours that really make your trips away memorable.


Tapas restaurants

You may have experienced tapas restaurants at home, but there's nothing like experiencing the real thing in Spain – especially when you can enjoy seafood caught locally that day. You'll find tapas on offer in many bars and eateries, but head to the restaurants of Marbella's Old Town for a true authentic dining experience.


Flamenco, the passionate dance form, is the life and soul of Southern Spain. Seeing authentic flamenco dancers clapping, stamping and twirling is a mesmerising and exciting sight, so look out for the traditional venues, such as Tablao Flamenco Ana Maria, in Marbella's Old Town.

Whitewashed Villages

While the upmarket marinas of Marbella and Puerto Banus draw in the crowds, there's plenty to discover in the more tranquil charm of the whitewashed villages that surround Marbella, such as Estepone, Istan and Ojen. Many are set in spectacular scenery – an ideal way to spend a day of exploration.
