Planning Your Marbella Visit

Don't forget your passport

If you are going to Morocco or even just to the nearby British colony of Gibraltar, you are subject to border control - don't forget your passport.

Stay safe in the sun

It's hard to forget that the sun is shining, but remember to reapply sunscreen every hour to avoid nasty burns.

Dress code

If you are visiting any places of worship, Islamic or Catholic, be sure to dress modestly as a sign of respect.

Drinking age

The drinking age in Spain is 18, but children may be allowed to drink wine in restaurants with their parents.
