Beach or pool, which one do you prefer? Do you find yourself attracted to the endless sea and the waves, or does the idea of a private pool with a cocktail in hand sound more appealing? Here’s a Swish recommendation for every personality. Which one are you?
The Secret Mermaid
You love to dive deep and explore every nook and cranny of the pool or the ocean. You’re not one for sitting still, and you’ll spend hours swimming, diving, and playing games with your friends. You need a beach, and on The Golden Mile, Marbella you can find plenty of spots to swim and relax.
Choose from numerous beach bars to chill at or spend the day tanning/lounging in. The Golden Mile beach is a perfect blend of luxury and natural beauty. The calm waters make it perfect for families, while the lively atmosphere and nightlife options are ideal for groups of friends.
Our tip: choose a property that is close to the water, like LV One, only 50 metres from the sea.
The Lounger Lizard
You’re not one for getting wet, but you do love to soak up the sun. You’ll spend all day lounging on a deck chair, reading a book or listening to music. You appreciate a good poolside bar and can always be found with a cold drink in hand. One of Marbella’s many beach clubs will suit you perfectly!
If you’re the kind of person who enjoys the finer things in life, then a beach club in Marbella is definitely your scene. With luxurious daybeds, private cabanas, and a variety of drinks and food options, you’ll be able to relax in style. And it’s not just about the glamour – a day at a beach club is also about socialising and meeting like-minded individuals. Some of the most popular beach clubs in Marbella include Nikki Beach, Ocean Club, and La Sala by the Sea. Read our guide to Marbella’s best beach clubs here.
The Lap Legend
You’re a serious swimmer and you’re not here to play games. You’ll swim laps for hours on end, tracking your time and distance like an Olympic athlete. You appreciate a clean and well-maintained pool, and you’ll be the first to call out anyone who doesn’t follow pool etiquette.
Luckily Swish can cater for you. We offer a range of villas with private indoor and outdoor pools. Try out Villa Anamaya in The Golf Valley, which has a perfect – lap style pool and even better, stunning scenery all around too.
The Lake Lover
You prefer the crisp, clear waters of a lake over the chlorinated waters of a pool. You’ll take a dip in a lake any chance you get, and you will appreciate the serene surroundings of nature. You’re not too concerned with lounging poolside or getting a tan – you’re here for the natural beauty and refreshing swim.
If you’re looking for something different, why not take a short drive from Marbella to Istan Lake? With its inviting crisp water and beautiful natural surroundings, this lake is the perfect spot for those who want to escape the hustle and bustle of Marbella. The lake offers plenty of water activities such as kayaking, and of course, the “away from it all” feeling.
The Toe- Dipper
You’re not a huge fan being in the water and avoid it at all costs, yet you love to admire a good view of the sea or a crisp pool. You’ll sit poolside with your feet dipped in the water, but you won’t go any deeper than that. You’re happy to watch your friends swim and have fun, but you’ll stick to dry land. Luckily for you, the majority of our villas have stunning terraces, where you can sit comfortably away from the water and still enjoy an uplifting scene.
The chill-out Balinese style terraces at Villa La Luisa will tick all your boxes.
Villas with Private Pools in Marbella
If you’re looking for something more exclusive just to dip your toes into or train for your next Olympic freestyle relay, then renting a villa with a private pool is an excellent option. Swish offers a range of marvellous homes to suit your preferences, and the pool is often the central meeting point for your party.
