Car Theft is very common in the Malaga province with Rental cars being a prime target. They do not usually take the cars which are mostly fitted with tracking devices but they will break in even if you have nothing of value on show.
Remove your back parcel shelf to show nothing is being carried. Thieves broke into my car when my laptop was in the boot, and it was left in a public place in the middleof the day!
You will not have to worry about the quality of the beaches. All Marbella's wide beaches fly the European Union blue flag there are national and international schools for students of all nations. So keep an eye out for beautiful and intelligent people who may capture your heart!
Keep a careful eye out for pickpockets. For example anyone who chooses a seat suspiciously near you when there is plenty of vacant seating available as happened to us in a tapas bar. Fortunately we sussed what was about to happen and the bar owner was more than happy to help chase off the undesirables.
'Don't reject the flames just because the cold coals are easier to handle!... It is better to be a conscious servant of fire than the king of the ashes.'
The path leading to the fortress hill is very popular among tourists, which naturally attracts thieves. Take caution and don't carry all your valuables with you.
BEWARE OF PRETTY GIRLS SELLING FLOWERS, THEY ARE SOMETIMES PICKPOCKETS.
DONT STEP ON ANYONE ALONG THE BEACH.....LOOK OUT FOR BEACH BUMS.
