My visit to Marbella was a very pleasant surprise! Located on the Costa Del Sol, I must admit that I’d expected the city to be full of tourists and lacking in character. I’m pleased to confirm that this is not the case at all!
I arrived in the evening and was delighted to find the sun still shining. The taxi ride from the bus station to the school provided a ‘mini’ city tour, and after depositing my luggage in one of the on-site apartments, I set out eager to explore.
The school is located just five minutes’ walk from the beach, and I soon found myself strolling along the promenade in the evening sunshine. The seafront is lined with bars, restaurants and ice cream parlours (yum!), and I was in good company as I meandered along the shore. Holidaymakers and locals young and old were also taking advantage of the pleasant evening, and the place buzzed. Even though I was alone, it was impossible to feel lonely! The hum of conversation and the aroma of fresh fish being barbecued on the beach made this one of my favourite places to relax during my time in Marbella.
