Best Times to Visit Marbella

The best time to visit Marbella is in September and October when summer's tourists have departed but temperatures are still warm enough for a dip in the Mediterranean. The months that span November and March see lower temperatures and fewer tourists, while April is another nice shoulder season of moderate temps and bearable crowds. Summertime's peak season attracts throngs of tourists, but temps and rates on everything from flights to hotels, are at their highest this time of year.
