What to do in Marbella?
When you choose to rent a boat in Marbella for a week or just a few days, you'll find plenty of options to keep you busy. To make sure you never get bored sailing around the Costa del Sol
, here are a few recommendations for boat parties in Marbella.
Boat trips around Marbella make a great choice for birthdays, hen or stag parties, or any other celebration. If you and your friends are hoping to have a carefree time out at sea, it's a good idea to rent a boat with a skipper. This way, you can focus on fun, while an experienced professional takes care of the sailing side of things.
To turn your Marbella boat charter into an open water party by day, look for fun activities to keep the whole group entertained. Snorkelling, jet skiing, or enjoying banana boats and lilos are a great way to make the most of the beautiful Mediterranean weather. For more organised fun, ask your skipper to set sail for areas with dolphin watching. Striped and bottlenose dolphins are both common in the waters around Marbella, and they're a delight to see in their natural habitat.
Depending on your point of arrival, you may choose to rent one of our boats from another location and sail to Marbella. However, if you wish to start in Marbella, we suggest flying into Malaga and picking up your boat rental from the nearest port, Puerto Deportivo de Fuengirola, and sailing west along the South Coast. This route is practical for those short for time, all the while allowing you to explore the Costa del Sol region to the maximum. Rent a yacht in Marbella and spend a few days or a week discovering the different parts of the island!
The good news is that Nautal not only offers boat rent in Marbella’s central harbour, Puerto Deportivo de Marbella, but also in Puerto José Banús and Puerto Pesquero de Estepona. The bad news is that this means you have even more choice as to where to start your charter!
Whether you have come to sizzle in the sun, sip a cocktail in the shade or shop till you drop, Marbella provides for all audiences. Boutiques, bars
and bistros layer the waterfront
and spread further inland behind Marbella’s distinguished, high class harbour. The shopping is boundless with markets lining the streets during the high season. Estepona
holds a street market weekly on a Sunday, a popular affair with both locals and tourists. You can rest assured that you’ll never go hungry as the never ending buzz of restaurants and cafes here endeavour to tickle all taste buds.
Fuengirola is a town along the east coast known for its beaches and medieval castle overlooking the coast. Within a 15 minute’s walk of the harbour you can reach the Bioparc, an animal park (awarded certificate of excellence by tripadvisor) which sets the European bar high on the preservation of animal species and respect for nature and wildlife.
Of course, you might want to drop anchor and head to one of the fabulous nightclubs that Marbella is famous for. They attract the rich and famous from around Spain and beyond. If you'd rather not go to the pricier bars in Puerto Banus, set sail for Estepona, where you'll generally pay a bit less for your night time entertainment.
Make your boat trips in Marbella the way you want to! The beauty of a boat hire in Costa del Sol are the endless possibilities that suit everyone. Don’t miss out on this Marbella trip.
