With Marbella's stunning coastal views and frequent inflow of well-heeled visitors, it should come as no surprise that golfing is a popular pastime here. Many of the region's top hotels boast their own courses, but if you want to venture beyond your resort, you'll find several highly praised greens.

One of the most popular is Los Naranjos Golf Club, which is located down the coast from central Marbella near Puerto Banús. Recent visitors said the greens are immaculately kept and that the staff was friendly and helpful. The course charges different fees based on the time of year and the number of holes played. For instance, from March to May and October to November, Los Naranjos charges 59 euros for nine holes (about $70); it charges 44 euros per nine holes (or about $52) between late May and September.

Marbella Club Golf Resort, located about 15 miles down the coast from central Marbella, is another favored spot. The staff members earn high praise from recent golfers thanks to their warm and friendly service, but others warn of potential pickpockets. Tee times will cost visitors who are not guests of the adjoining hotel 80 euros (about $95) for a round of 18 holes.

#1 Marbella Old Quarter

Although much of Marbella is defined by its glitzy resort-town trappings, the Marbella Old Quarter – also known as Casco antiguo de Marbella – gives travelers a taste of old Spain. Here you'll find plazas spilling with flowers, punctuated by trees, narrow, cobblestone streets and historic residences and churches. The heart of this quarter is Plaza de los Naranjos – Orange Square – and around it, visitors will find a 15th-century fountain, a 16th-century town hall, a 17th-century church and a handful of unique shops. The best way to experience this area is by slowly meandering, stopping in various shops and eateries along the way.

Most recent visitors highly recommended a stroll through Marbella's pedestrian-friendly Old Quarter, but they also warned that the district is hilly. Others say that the restaurants, cafes and bars are filled with delicious treats; freshly squeezed orange juice and churros, for instance.
