Walking in and Around Marbella

Best Time of Year

Walking in Marbella is best done between the months of October and April when the weather is warm but not so hot as to cause de-hydration. See our Marbella Climate page for more info about the weather. Normally the weather is quite good in October but do take in to account sun and rain. You will not always be walking in the shade, a hat and sunscreen are a necessary part of your equipment.

Walk the Golden Mile from Marbella to Puerto Banus

The walk is about 7.6km (4.8 miles) and should take less than 2 hours at a brisk pace, but with sightseeing it could take a lot more. Fortunately, you will pass our apartment about half way so you could drop in for a rest if you happen to be renting it that week.
