When we are not travelling, the hubb's and I have a lovely Saturday routine. We take a a drive down to Marbella, park the car in Puerto banus and take the coastal walk all the way up to Marbella old town
And back again...
There's no denying its a long way... but its so pretty. And a great way to catch up with each other about our respective weeks and make plans for the future. And add into it the exercise, that really you don't notice your doing as your too busy chatting and taking in the sights.
And if you find yourself tiring, just stop off at one of the gorgeous chiringuito along the way. A particular favorite of ours is El Chiringuito. Best mojitos EVER
It always feels extra special as its only open for the summer months.
The coastal road leads all along the costa del sol, but we turn off once we hit Marbella old town. Its one of my favourite places in Spain, and it always makes me feel like im on vacay.
We get lost through the little white town, taking the windy cobbles streets and checking out the pretty boutiques and art shops
Another favourite stop off is La cuisine, on Avenida de Ricardo Soroano
We order cafe con leche, zumo de naranja (freshly squeezed and tastes amazing) and something to nibble on. La Cuisine also has a fabulous roof bar with views over the old town, perfect for cocktails with friends.
Straw bag here
Its such a pretty little town to potter about in. Filled with old churches, Bougainvillea draped buildings and flower-filled plazas.
And once we've had our fill of gorgeous old town, we turn around and walk all the way back.
This time only stopping periodically to admire the views of Gibraltar and Africa which on a clear day are truly incredible
We are always looking for Marbella recommendations so if you have any, please do let me know below in the comments
