Topping Up Your Tan on Holiday in Marbella
Two fine sandy beaches are where the beautiful people can show off their perfect tans and designer swimwear as they lounge in the sun, while paragliding behind a speed boat is a blast for Bond and Bond Babe wannabes.
The smart Avenida del Mar runs along the beach, lined with beach bar "chiringuitos" and seafront restaurants where you have to try the succulent spit roast sardines. The 'Puerto Deportivo' marina offers the complete lavish package being the glittering hotspot of the bay.
