In August in Marbella there is no distinction between night and day, and there’s hardly any time to rest!  It’s one of those places where visitors lose all sense of time and sleep happens at snatched moments during the day, usually when the sun is at its peak. From the city center to the Puerto Banús marina, Marbella is a hotbed of activity, usually at the coolest times of day, where it is impossible to be bored.

To explore Marbella, visitors should choose places and times while bearing in mind the soaring August temperatures which force people to abandon whatever they are doing in the middle of the day.  But when the sun starts to set, innumerable restaurants and bars open for somewhere to eat, as well as all kinds of shops and nightspots.  Evenings usually begin late, with table reservations at restaurants often made for after 10pm.  This eases up people’s schedules and means it is normal to go out after midnight.  In fact many places don’t open before 11pm, when the atmosphere is yet far from what it will be at 4am.  At this time the bars have to shut their doors, but not the clubs, so you can follow the last drink of the night with your breakfast coffee with no trouble at all.

But on top of this, Marbella has an attraction that other places in Spain don’t have. Lots of famous people who are passing through the country congregate here. Little wonder the Andalusian city has hosted concerts for many high profile artists touring round Europe.  Julio Iglesias, the Buena Vista Social Club, Sara Baras, Alejandro Sanz, Paco de Lucía, Forever Michael & Whitney, Enrique Iglesias and UB40 are just some of the big names who will be performing in Marbella this August.  So it’s not inconceivable that you might bump into one of them having dinner at a restaurant or at one of the city’s most exclusive nightclubs.

Essentially, Marbella has an inexhaustible party atmosphere for all kinds of visitors, from budget travelers looking for cheap thrills, to those who will only accept the very best of products and services.  All this in one of Spain’s most popular tourist destinations.



Marbella is the most famous tourist destination in Malaga, located on the shores of the Mediterranean, on the Andalusian coast, between the capital Malaga and the Straits of Gibraltar. The IBEROSTAR Marbella Coral Beach, which has 4 stars, is one of the most emblematic hotels in the Costa del Sol. It is renowned for its fabulous “Beach Club” in one of Marbella’s most exclusive areas. “
