As the winter approaches some visitors to Marbella are pleasantly surprised to find the town still offering a vibrant lifestyle.

Marbella, Hansa RealtyYes, it is a resort town but unlike others in Spain and further afield, it does not close down when the summer visitors head home. Marbella has lots going on, making it perfect not just as a year round tourist destination, but also as somewhere to make your home.

With its wonderful microclimate of mild winters and seemingly endless days of glorious sunshine, Marbella has long attracted winter visitors and ‘residential tourists’, enabling the town’s restaurateurs and businesspeople to remain open year round, offering top quality dining and entertainment. This ensures there is always something to do in the quieter months for people who have bought a villa, townhouse or apartment in Marbella and its surrounding areas.

Its five-star leisure facilities and sporting attractions are other important factors in attracting the winter visitor. Here we give you five ideas on what to do in Marbella in the winter:

1. Visit Puerto Banús: a day out in itself, this glamorous marina is the place to spot a celebrity on a winter break. Apart from viewing the spectacular super yachts, there is fine dining, a vibrant nightlife and some of the best designer label shopping to be found in Spain at its stylish boutiques.

2.Soak up some culture: there are several museums and galleries that are well worth a visit. The Bonsai Museum (Museo del Bonsai) in the Parque Arroyo de la Represa is unique, as is the popular Contemporary Engraving Museum (Museo del Grabado Espanol Contemporáneo), which has works by Picasso and Miró. The Municipal Exposition Gallery (Galería Municipal de Exposiciones) and the Casa Grande gallery showcase the work of artists from all over the world in a series of changing exhibitions. The latter also displays an impressive collection of Byzantine art, crafts and sculptures from the 4th Century, while the Ralli Museum on the Golden Mile is a delight where you will encounter Miró and Dali, among many others.

3.Time for some Flamenco: experience an authentic performance of this famous Andalusian dance genre at Flamenco Ana María (Plaza Santo Cristo, Casco Antiguo) and Donde María – Sala Flamenca (Vicente Blasco Ibañez).

4.See how the jet set live: spend an evening at the Marbella Club or Puente Romano resorts on Marbella’s Golden Mile. This is where Marbella as a luxury resort town first evolved and the glamorous fun does not stop in winter.

5.Take to the fairways: the Marbella area, with its top quality courses, is Europe’s premier winter golfing destination. Take advantage of the winter sun to enjoy a round or two in perfect conditions.Golf Marbella, Hansa Realty
