Valentine's Day in Marbella
Special Day for Lovers
Valentine's Day is a special day for lovers. In Britain it may mean a special dinner or giving of gifts. But in Marbella you can add to this walks along long sandy beaches, moonlit walks along the marble promenade, dinner on the beach as the waves crash around you or dinner in the Old Town with its typical Andalucía ambiance.
Spanish men put on a great show of romance. Flowers, chocolates and perfume are commonly given as gifts, and Marbella restaurants are packed to the rafters with swooning couples. It is normal practice in Spain for husbands to give wives bunches of flowers, and unmarried couples exchange other gifts, including red roses and, interestingly, books.

A beautiful beach, exotic location and breathtaking views of wonderful countryside can be found throughout Andalucía on Valentine's Day and the restaurants in Marbella and Puerto Banus are just exquisite. If you are thinking of spending a few days on the Costa del Sol to celebrate Valentine’s Day, you won’t be disappointed.
Have a special Valentine’s Day meal at one of the many superb fine dining restaurants or perhaps on the balcony of your own rented apartment. Then after dinner, continue well into the night at the parties or dances in Marbella or Puerto Banus or perhaps one of the beachside chiringuitos overlooking the Mediterranean.
Love is in the air – Looking for the perfect gift?
Jewellery is always a hit at Valentine’s Day. What about a 100€ Cartier bracelet. The unisex bracelet has a white gold central piece on which the word LOVE is engraved. It is then fastened with a coloured silk cord strap.
Perhaps your girlfriend would like a bubblegum pink iPod Nano. It may be small, but a perfect gift for Valentine’s Day. She will be able to enjoy movies, TV shows and music whilst you drive her around Puerto Banus in your hired Porche.
For a unique Valentine’s Day gift that will last a lifetime, get down to the Castle Gallery in Guadalmina. Show your love with a piece of limited edition art and impress your loved one with something from their special Valentine’s range.

This year, forget sending the predictable bunch of red roses. An edible treat is so much more pleasurable. The creative bunch at Kukis have produced a valentine’s cookie collection that all really are good enough to eat. Send a beautifully packaged box of heart-shaped kukis, decorated with cute pretty pink, hot red or pastel coloured icing. Or what about the luscious lip shaped kukis to send a kiss to your Valentine. Perhaps make it unique with a really personal message or any photo.
A touch of bling is always appreciated by your Valentine. The Bibi range
