I am looking for suggestions for things to do in Marbella. I will have a car and 2 1/2 days to spend there before heading to Barcelona.
One, see Gibraltar, but park outside and walk in and then take a taxi for a tour (25€ pp).
Two, go to see the Serranía de Ronda, Ronda and the Smurf Village (Júzcar) where I live (take A397 from San Pedro (Malaga) to get to Ronda and environs). This is in the interior of Malaga province which is well worth seeing if you like nature, which is under promoted and well worth seeing. If you would like some tips on Ronda, ask me.
