The Malaga province is building an international reputation attracting hundreds of Europe’s top companies and talent to set up a presence here. Multiple tech conferences are hosted here, including Jo on the Beach and JS Nation Conference. Malaga itself has the Techpark, with more than 600 of the biggest names in technology having an office.
Marbella is ideally located to explore the rest of Spain and even further afield. The international airport of Malaga – with connections worldwide – is only 40 minutes away, with Gibraltar airport an hour away. High-speed rail services are also available from Malaga, including fast trains to Madrid in less than three hours.
The Marbella area also boasts high-quality schools and universities, world-class dining, a relaxed and affordable way of life, and has a truly international feel.
Here’s what we love
The Costa del Sol has more than 125 beaches spread over 100 miles with highlights including Marbella, Estepona, and Benalmádena. Close by is Cádiz, with even more incredible shorelines and the Spanish surf mecca of Tarifa.
Food is a massive part of Spanish social life, and it’s hard to find a bad meal around Marbella. Enjoy traditional tapas and stunning paella, but Marbella serves an international clientele with excellent sushi, Middle Eastern cuisine, steakhouses, and many more fine dining options.
Enjoy kitesurfing at the beach, padel on one of the hundreds of courts, go hiking in and around any easily accessible mountain trails and national parks of Andalusia, or head to the snow in the Sierra Nevada for skiing and snowboarding. And don’t forget golf. Whether you’re new to the greens or a wannabe Tiger Woods, Marbella is the perfect place to play.
Another great aspect of Spanish life is long evenings and longer nights. And it’s not just clubs that party into the morning, but great cocktail bars, authentic music nights, and even tasty ice cream parlours that stay open much later than your usual bedtime.
