Shopping in Marbella and Puerto Banus
Marbella Shopping has it all
It is the playground of the rich and famous. As you would expect, it has an unusually high number of designer clothes and jewellery shops. But it also has several large shopping complexes, as well as hypermarkets, specialty food shops, accessory shops, interior decor stores and gift stores. Most of the top-end brands can be found in Puerto Banús and in the centre of Marbella on Avenida Ricardo Soriano. Marbella Old Town is great place to explore the gift shops and pick up some souvenirs to take home. La Cañada (pronounced Canyada), the main out-of-town shopping centre, has everything you’d expect, from clothes, sports and accessories shops to cinemas and restaurants. Spain’s leading department store, El Corte Ingles, has a massive store at Puerto Banus. The best market is at the Plaza de Toros (Bull Ring) Nueva Andalucia and operates on a Saturday.
How and When to Shop
Unless you are in a hurry, the best way to explore Marbella's shops is by simply strolling through the streets. However, the following is a brief list of some of the better known outlets to help you locate that particular item you are looking for.
Stores in Marbella usually open between 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. Some stores close at lunchtime for siesta (1:00 or 2:00 pm) and they reopen at 4:00 or 5:00 p.m. However, larger shops are usually open even during siesta hours. Most of Marbella’s shopping centers are closed on Sunday but smaller tourist type shops may well be open - especially in summer.
Summer Sunday Shopping From around 1st July, shops along the Costa del Sol and Andalucia start their peak season hours. It means most shops will be open seven days a week until around September 15th. This applies mostly to areas of great tourist influx (ZGAT), and benefits Torremolinos, Nerja, Mijas, Marbella, Manilva, Fuengirola, Estepona and Benalmadena. Popular centres like La Cañada (Marbella), Miramar (Fuengirola) and El Corte Inglés (Marbella and Mijas) will be open every day during this period.

The Puerto Banus and Nueva Andalucia markets are mainly for tourist selling arts and crafts, handbags, watches, clothes etc. The Marbella, San Pedro, and Ojen markets are more traditional and sell fresh fruit, vegetables and spices as well.
