What to do on a (scarce) rainy day in Marbella:

Ok so you have come on a winter escape to Marbella but you have bad luck and it rains (yes it does happen sometimes). What can you do with your time? We suggest the following options:


There are a couple of cinemas that offer the VOS (Original version so not dubbed) movies. The closest one is located in Centro commercial Miramar in Fuengirola. In Plaza Mayor in Málaga there is a really big IMAX theatre that also offers VOS movies. Plaza Mayor is a outdoors commercial center with a new outlet retail worthwhile a visit.


There are some smaller theaters in Marbella and San pedro but the theatre to go would be the Cervantes Theatre in Málaga.

Shopping malls

There are two indoor shopping malls in the Marbella area; La Cañada where you will find most high street brands (ZARA, Footlocker, Massimo Dutti, G-star and many more) and some flagship stores (Apple has a really big Apple store here), a cinema, a large supermarket (Alcampo/Auchan) and lots of restaurants. Outside the mall there is a large hardware store (Leroy merlin), a electronics store (Worten), a large sports shop (Sportzone) and a car repair center (Norauto).

The other indoor shopping facility is located in Puerto Banus and is El Corte Inglés. A department store with four floors filled with the best brands for clothes, jewelery, cosmetics, electronics, sports and more. It also has a Hipercor supermarket inside the building.
