People watching is always a popular occupation – and you could spot a celeb or two while sunning yourself on the Costa del Sol as many well known faces holiday here to top up their fans and frequent the nightclubs.
Marbella, or ‘Marbs’, and nearby party central Puerto Banus, are the locations to check out and catch sight of who is strutting their stuff and hoping to make the tabloids that week.
The stars of UK reality TV show The Only Way is Essex have made Marbella their second home. Coronation Street actors, top footballers, model Katie Price aka Jordan, and Kerry Katona are among the many to have been snapped by the paparazzi.
At ‘PB’ the marina is an ogler’s delight for those with a taste for luxury yachts and super expensive cars, while the main streets are lined with designer shops. It’s the playground for the rich and famous and party hotspot of Arabian princes. Head to the famous Sinatra’s Bar on the frontline – the best place to people watch.
Party animals should include celeb fave Pangea on the harbour for cocktails, with its spectacular rooftop terrace, and perhaps finish the night off at Tibu, where the VIP area is a spotter’s paradise.
Then there are the beach clubs such as Nikki Beach, a favourite hang out for champagne swigging parties, and others including Pura Beach, Laguna Village further west along the coast. Parties run throughout the summer season so watch out for announcements.
