Spring and Easter in Marbella on the Costa del Sol are among the best times to visit this little piece of paradise in southern Spain.
As the temperatures start to rise, without the summer crowds clogging up the roads and packing the beach bars, spring is a magical time to make the most of the coast.
With Easter 2020 falling on April 12th in 2020, why not stay in a luxury Marbella event villa with the family and travel to Malaga to see the stunning Easter processions? This brightly coloured and emotive celebration of Spain’s culture and religion includes a week of lavish and ornate processions through the streets of Malaga during the week before Easter.
The Holy Week period is unlike anything else. The unmistakable smell of incense, and the breath-taking processions make this one of the most beautiful, inspiring, and moving traditions that can be experienced anywhere in the world.
Aside from the processions, spring is a time when the Costa del Sol comes back to life after winter, the golf courses attract plenty of visitors to sunnier climes and the beach bars re-open. Enjoy fresh seafood, a jug of sangria or two and live music at one of the many chiringuitos, just metres from the sea.
