What’s On in Marbella for Christmas

What’s On in Marbella for Christmas

We know that Marbella is best known for beach days and summer fun in the sun, but there’s so much more to enjoy here. Back in November we shared our top winter fun activities in Marbella which you should check out if you don’t believe this is a year round destination. Now the Christmas lights are up it’s looking so festive, and soon we should have the first snows up in our nearest ski resort.

One of the things Marbella does so well is to party, and Christmas is a great excuse to celebrate! There have already been loads of Christmas markets, with many more to come, and we’re getting invitations to all sorts of great events, so we thought we’d share and see if you can join us. There’s always a cozy, welcoming place for you to stay here at our boutique hotel, not to mention some great Christmas activities, so come on over and enjoy the magic of Christmas in Marbella.
