Our response to COVID-19
From Monday 18th May the Costa del Sol entered into Phase 1 of the de-escalation plan. This allows greater freedom of movement within the area; however strict social distancing measures are still in place.
As the global coronavirus outbreak in Spain flattens out, at Marbella For Life we are adhering strictly to the Spanish Government’s guidelines about social isolation in a bid to contain the problem as a community.
To this end our offices will remain closed to the public unless by prior appointment. We are available to show clients properties for sale so please do not hesitate to contact us should you wish to view any of the properties on our website.
Thankfully, at last, here on the Costa del Sol, the de-escalation process has started and we are gradually heading back to more normal lives. The process is still going to be slow and somewhat confusing but we will get there, and before too long we will be able to welcome back our visitors, clients and friends.
We look forward to seeing you soon and in the meantime, please stay safe.
NEW 300-metre kitesurfing zone in Marbella to rival that of Tarifa
19th May 2019
An agreement has been reached between Marbella town hall and the 250 member strong Marbella Kite Club to create a permanent 300 metre area along the beach at Playa Los Monteros to act as a home for the sport.
New decking, showers, toilets, drying areas and proper designation of the surfing channels are all set to be included in the plans. For around a decade kite-surfers had previously been forced to use the Rio Real area, which was flanked by dangerous rocks. This location meant local schools could not take part in the sport, while kitesurfing newcomers were also put off.
These plans for Marbella should see it grow in popularity among kite-surfers, in the same way the sport’s hotspot of Tarifa has.
David Gallardo, secretary of Marbella Kite Club, highlighted the ‘the high purchasing power of the kite-surfers and the economic impact that their presence has on the city’. Negotiations between the club and local council have been tough after they first began back in 2008.
The agreement is yet to be ratified by the Junta, and comes after kite-surfers demanded a safe area to practice their pastime.
