Marbella Beach Clubs

Marbella is well known as the favourite destination in Andalucia amongst the international jet-set crowd and the very rich and famous. Often referred to as Spain’s equivalent of Saint-Tropez, the city and many of the beaches here are well renowned for beauty, opulence and the greatest of luxury.

At Marbella's many Beach Clubs, you can spend the entire day lounging on a sunbed with a cocktail, followed by an evening of luxurious dining and finally dancing into the small hours at some of the best parties on the Costa del Sol.

Although there are many beach bars (chringuigtos) along the beaches of Andalucia, a Beach Club is something more. A Beach Club should have a swimming pool with sunbeds and be located next to a beach so that guests can enjoy the best of both worlds. Although they are called 'clubs', you don't have to be a member to spend the day by the pool. Some beach clubs there have an entrance fee, however for most you simply have to reserve a sunbed. Beach Clubs will usually charge a fee per sunbed, but will provide towels and water. They is always a cocktail bar and usually a restaurant serving at a terrace or by the pool.

Those Beach Clubs that do not belong to hotels are normally only open during the Summer season, from Easter until late September, but check the pages for individual opening times.
