Marbella is a shopping paradise with its supermarkets, hypermarkets, back street souvenir shops, and designer boutiques. Your visit to Costa del Sol is not complete if you do not pass by this area to indulge yourself in new clothes, shoes, bags and accessories. If you happen to spend your vacation in Marbella (especially with a luxury car hire!) during January, February, August, and September, you are lucky enough to experience and enjoy the summer and winter sales. Here are some of the most popular shopping destinations in Marbella.
Puerto Banus is the place to be if you are looking for designer boutiques like Versace, Prada, Louis Vuitton, Yves Saint Laurent, Hermes, Celine, and much more.
You can also enjoy shopping in a five-storey El Corte Ingles, which is the largest department store in Marbella that offers brands like DKNY, Loewe, and Karen Millen. Located directly opposite this area is Marina Banus, an indoor shopping center that showcases clothing and accessories from H&M, Zara, Yamamay, and Stradivarius.
If you want to shop before you head out to Malaga airport, the Plaza Mayor Centre is the best spot for you. It offers more than 25 varieties of shops including Imagine Mombou, Imagine, Arlandy, Levis, and Bossini.
You can also buy in a large factory outlet of Nike also located in this complex. After all the tedious shopping you do, have a decent meal in a good range of international and local restaurants such as Foster Hollywood, Chimarrao, and Pasta City.
You can visit wonderful shops like Artesania Espanola and Ceramica San Nicolas in Marbella's Old Town that sells hand-crafted ceramics at a reasonable price. You can choose from the plates, cups, and other ceramic items that you can add to your collection back home.
