If there’s a place that just evokes European glitz and glamour, it’s Marbella.


Set on the sunny Spanish coast and populated by some of the worlds richest and most famous, this town offers the kind of Hen weekend where you can soak up some rays on the beach, shop till you drop, people watch over a cocktail and dance until sunrise. And then do it all over again!

For nightlife, head into Puerto Banus, where some of the plushest yachts in the world are moored. Here you will find rows of dock-side restaurants and bars frequented by flashy people who have just stepped off their yachts along with some who wish they had and a variety of other tourists. Just let your hair down or have a go at bagging yourself a millionaire toyboy!

During the day, head to one of the many golden beaches for some sun and watersports, before hitting the shops at one of the massive malls, or browsing for quirky souvenirs at a flea market.

For an alternative experience, you may want to wonder around the cobbled streets of Marbella’s Casco Antiguo, the old town, for a taste of traditional Spain with whitewashed houses and flower-filled balconies.
