LNOF Guide to Marbella
Costa del Sol’s palm-lined slice of paradise and party hotspot, Marbella, has drawn everyone from Bismarck, to Banderas, to Connery. Packed full of ex-pats, WAGS, dreamers and schemers, Andalucia’s ace in the (Par 3) hole comes complete with orange trees, cava, sparkling senoritas and softly-lit beachside bars of breathtaking coolness. Contrary to the myth about yacht-sized wallets being the minimum requirement to even breathe here – the pricing of accommodation and cuisine isn’t always just affordable for the rich and famous.
Tailor a stag weekend in Marbella to suit your specific needs, choosing from our quality list of daytime events and activities (think go karting, catamarans or spas) so that your sunlit hours are punctuated by more than simply shuffling about from bar to bar and checking out the talent. The baking heat in Marbella tends to work against the alcoholic all-dayer.
Backed by a magnificent range of mountains and a stretch of beach that mixes mahogany-tanned playboys with those of us from the off-white speedo brigade - Marbella stag weekends are rich in fine ladies and sizzling sun. With Puerto Banus only a short cab ride away, you’re bang in the centre of Malaga’s white teeth tourism belt, so make the most of your stunning surroundings before you even arrive by taking on board a level of advice that money really can buy. Last Night of Freedom have been operating in Spain for over a decade, which equates to one hell of a lot of dinner reservations, boat cruises and clubbing queue jumpers. Stag weekends are not something to leave to chance - least of all when you’re jetting off to a place synonymous with big boats and bling – and the last thing you want is to stress under that lazy old skyline.
Marbella has always blurred the sublime with the ridiculous, as underlined by the fan club it’s gathered over the years. Not many towns can boast Salvador Dali, Mike Reid and Dolph Lundgren amongst its former residents, for instance, and it’s safe to say there’s more than the Bonsai Tree Museum to attract folk to its shores.
