Flea Market in Marbella – and all of Spain!

If you like us are totally and utterly into markets, wether it is old antique, useless things or artists selling their latest work, you must not cheat yourself of visiting one of the largest flea markets on the entire Costa del Sol Coastline!

It’s official name is Nueva Andalucia Artisan Market and it takes place every sunday morning with more than 120 stalls and it is possible to buy everything from hand carved furnitures, homemade soap, Spanish cooking pots made of clay to used books, bikes and boats. There’s also a big selection of antiques, textiles, paintings, spices and other type of food, so if you are looking for a cheap unique souvenir to bring home, this is a great place to shop.

The marked is located next to the Bullring in Puerto Banus, a 8€ taxi drive from Marbella – and no, it is not possible to miss it, if you aim for the Bullring on Avenida Manolete in Puerto Banus. 120 stalls don’t go unseen! The place is surrounded by local bars and tapas restaurants where you can relax from the buzz or just sit and do a lot of people watching!

The market is open from 09.00 pm till 14.00 pm.

If you are looking for additional markets in the area around Marbella – or anywhere in Andalusia or Spain, then take a look at this official market website for all of Spain. Simply click on the area where you want to go bargain hunting – but keep in mind, there are just as many non-official markets in Spain as there are officials!

You can even choose to get the markets in a certain area on a certain day displayed. For instant, if you have chosen monday as your market day, just pick monday in the calendar on the website and all the markets that are registered for that upcoming monday in your area, will be shown.

Have a GREAT bargain hunting!

Ferry from Marbella to Puerto Banus

The Fly Blue Uno motor Catamaran boat offers daily cruises between Marbella Marina and Puerto Banus, with a duration of some 30 minutes each way. The price varies depending on a single trip, round trip, season, adult, child etc. so make sure always to check up on the prices before heading out on the Marina. Use the blue button below.

You have the option of leaving Marbella to go shopping in Puerto Banus and then return to Marbella, eat a late spanish dinner and head off to Puerto Banus later to hit the sparkling nightlife out there.

Alternatively, you can just jump onboard and enjoy the sun on the huge deck, relax and look at the view for the complete cruise and decide not to get off in Puerto Banus, which we however encourage you to do, especially if you are a bit of a car and fashion freak.

The gated Puerto Banus Marina is covered in expensive luxurious cars alongside shops from all the famous exclusive clothing and designer brands in the entire world.

We can recommend that you eat at the award winning – and always busy Italian Pizzeria “Picasso” 
99,9% of the time there is a huge line of people waiting to get in, and it’s understandable once you taste the food. It must however be some sort of a drag to all the other almost always empty restaurants, surrounding Picasso Pizzeria!

Leaving Puerto Banus, which elevates the mode, fortune, glamorous parties and high standards, you will enjoy the panoramic views along the coastline of Marbella and its Golden Mile where the most luxurious villas are found lying at the foot of the mountain La Concha.
