Marbella has taken the traditional concept of a “Chiringuito”, i.e. a beach bar, to the next level: Exquisite beach clubs, with refined decoration, international menu, DJ, Balinese beds, entertainment and of course, lots of beautiful people. The best known, such as Nikki Beach and Ocean Club, are daytime beach clubs.
