Marbella: From a small, seaside, agricultural town with a lot of history, to an international hot spot.
To illustrate the beginning of the evolution of Marbella as a resort town, the official census population in 1950 (not counting part-time residents) was 9,991 inhabitants, increasing to 12,069 in 1960, exploding to 29,253 in 1970, and more than doubling again by 1980. Clearly our company opened its first office in 1970 at exactly the right time. Marbella was always a very seasonal resort town, like all the others on the Mediterranean coast, with a high season which started very gradually in the Spring, building up to a crescendo in the summer months, and gradually rolling up the sidewalks at the end of September or beginning of October, with many restaurants and hotels closing down for the Winter.
For a resort city to be open year-round, with enough business to keep open the boutiques, restaurants, nightspots, leisure and sporting facilities, not only does one need to have great winter weather, but a minimum nucleus population of around 150,000 inhabitants, between registered residents and the “floating population” of residential tourism. This figure was finally achieved in Marbella around 1995, when the winter “offseason”took on a life of its own, transforming Marbella into the only resort city in the Mediterranean Basin with a true year-round season.
The current official population of Marbella reached 147,633 in January of 2021 ranking as the seventh municipality with the largest population in Andalucía. Adding the floating, unregistered population, the low season population today is between 250,000 and 275,000 inhabitants, according to Town Hall estimates, rising to over 800,000 in the peak season. Today there are people from 140 different nations living in Marbella of which 26 % of these registered residents are foreigners.
Over the years Marbella has come closer and closer to reaching its full potential as a resort city and is now among the most important, high end resort destinations in the world.
You can find real estate in Marbella ranging from a duplex penthouse situated on Marbella´s sandy beaches with amazing views of the Mediterranean Sea to golf villas with swimming pools situated right next to a golf course in Nueva Andalucia. Most new homes in Marbella are built to the highest standards and some of the best architects in Spain and the world build properties in the Marbella area. If you are searching for a wide selection of villas for sale in Marbella you can choose from villas situated right on the beach to those situated on a golf course or in the mountains. These reasons all contribute to make Marbella the cherished location for properties on Costa del Sol and Spain.
