    LA CAÑADA SHOPPING CENTRE, MARBELLA

    MARBELLA SHOPPING
     
    The Old Town is a lovely place to shop.  The narrow cobbled streets are full of a variety of shops and history at every turn.  In the Centre is the famous Plaza de Naranajos where you can relax, eat some tapas and enjoy a copa de sangria (Glass of sangria)  The majority of shops in the Old Town close for a siesta.
     

    The main high street is where you can find the chain stores, Zara, Mango, Bershka, and Sephora to name a few.  Off the main street heading to the sea front, you can find more independent stores.  The sea front hosts the souvenir shops (Shop around though) and restaurants.

    MIRAMAR SHOPPING CENTRE, FUENGIROLA
     
    This is very similar to Cañada boasting over 160 shops, a supermarket and cinema, which does show movies in English.  There is also a free wi-fi zone located in the eating area and a children’s play area.  There is also a Miramar Park, which is a mini commercial centre to the East of the shopping centre.  For directions click here

    PLAZA MAYOR

    Located close to the airport and Ikea. Plaza Mayor is an ideal place to pass the day. Not all the shops are under one roof, so there is plenty of strolling to be done. As well as shops and outlets, there is a large entertainment area, eating area and plenty to do in the evenings.  For directions click here

    PUERTO BANÚS SHOPPING
    This port is Shopping!  Everywhere you look there are shops for a variety of budgets.  There are the high street shops like Mango and Zara (For women, kids, men and home) and then you have the more exclusive Jimmy Choos, Dior and Versace.  This is one of the few areas where shops do not close for siesta.  The shops open from 10 am til 10 pm.  However during the summer a lot of them stay open for longer. 
     
    The key areas to visit are the Front Line.  This is the main tourist area as well.  With fantastic boutiques and restaurants on one side and the fabulous boats on the other, this makes for excellent shopping location.  If your other half is moaning leave them at a café for a caña (small beer) so they can watch the cars drive by and the moored boats, whilst you shop in peace.  Not so idyllic though in bad weather.
     
    Back from the Front Line is the small shopping centre Marina Banús.  Here there is a selection of shops ranging from lingerie to perfume to fashion for all ages.  There is also a small toddler area downstairs.
     
    Opposite Marina Banús is Corté Ingles, the largest Spanish department store.  The best place to shop in bad weather in Puerto Banús.  Everything under one roof.  There's even a post office (Downstairs) a lottery booth, two eating places, Starbucks, Children’s play area, a supermarket and parking.

    TOWN CENTRES

    Obviously we have named just a few of the larger areas for shopping.  In all the towns San Pedro, Estepona and Fuengirola to name a few, you can find small independent shops.  Nueva Andalucia has Centro Plaza where you can find hairdressers, shops and restaurants.  Guadalmina has a small commercial centre where there is a supermarket, restaurants and a few shops, mainly for the home though.

    STREET MARKETS
    Every town has at least one weekly street market. Puerto Banus also has an all summer long market located in Plaza Antonio that opens late into the night.
