What to pack - Essentials / What to wear
There is nothing worse than the horrific realisation of having forgotten your lovely bikini back home when going to Marbella. Make sure to pack plenty of them as let's face it, you won't be wearing much else.
Factor 50 sun screen is a must, nobody wants itchy burns after a lovely holiday, why not use it as your daily moisturising cream.
Best places to find the locals
Religious Virgins are hugely popular in Andalucia, they are usually handcrafted from wood and porcelain and spend 99% of the year in glass-covered alcoves at the local church. The ``Virgen del Carmen´´, however, has her own special day. On the 16th of July, they celebrate by parading her statue across the fishing villages and towns and they then take the procession out into the sea where crowds will be cheering and fireworks are set on fire.
What not to miss
