A Unique Gastronomic Experience for Friends and Family

Savoring the Sun and Flavors: Beach BBQs in Marbella

At 3SA Estates, we believe that the essence of the Marbella lifestyle is not just about luxurious homes but also about creating memorable experiences. One of the most delightful ways to enjoy Marbella’s picturesque scenery and vibrant culture is through a beach BBQ, a perfect blend of relaxation and culinary delight. Whether it’s a gathering of friends or a family reunion, a beach BBQ in Marbella offers a unique way to indulge in food and fun under the sun.

Introduction to Beach BBQs in Marbella
Imagine a day spent by the gentle waves of the Mediterranean, lounging on the sand with your loved ones as the aroma of grilling fills the air. This is the quintessence of a Marbella beach BBQ, locally known as “Moraga.” This tradition involves setting up a grill within old fishing boats on stilts in the sand, where you can cook a variety of meats, fish, and vegetables.

Getting Permission for a Beach BBQ
Before setting up your BBQ, it’s essential to obtain permission from the local town hall. This can be done at the Oficinas de Atención del Ciudadano (OAC) in Marbella or San Pedro. You’ll need to fill out a Solicitud de Moraga, specifying the details of your event. It’s crucial to follow these steps to ensure that your beach gathering is both fun and legal.

Choosing the Perfect Location
Marbella offers designated areas for beach BBQs, ensuring that every gathering is both enjoyable and respectful of the environment. These locations include Playa de la Vibora, Playa del Cable, Playa de Nueva Andalucía, and Playa de la Salida. Each spot offers its unique charm, from tranquil shores to vibrant beach scenes.

Planning Your Menu and Supplies
A successful BBQ is all about preparation. Visit local markets to pick fresh produce and seafood, a staple for any true Marbella BBQ. Ensure you have all the essentials: charcoal or wood for the fire, utensils, plates, and of course, your favorite beverages. Don’t forget a Bluetooth speaker to set the mood with some music.

The Ultimate Beach BBQ Checklist
To guarantee a seamless experience, here’s your ultimate checklist:


  • Official permission from the town hall
    A chosen location from the designated spots
  • Fresh ingredients from local vendors
    Essential BBQ gear and cooking utensils
  • Comfort items like chairs, tables, and a cooler
  • Protective gear such as sunscreen and hats
  • Entertainment options like music and games
  • Cleanup supplies to leave the beach pristine

Alternative BBQ Locations
If a beach setting isn’t your style, Marbella also offers beautiful parks like Parque de la Alameda and Parque Nagüeles for a more secluded BBQ experience. These spots provide green spaces equipped with public BBQ facilities, perfect for a family-friendly outing.

A beach BBQ in Marbella transcends mere dining; it’s a festive celebration of food, family, and the outdoor lifestyle that defines this beautiful region. By following local guidelines and embracing the communal spirit of a BBQ, you can enjoy a day filled with laughter, delicious food, and unforgettable memories. So gather your friends, pack your picnic basket, and prepare for a gastronomic adventure that only Marbella can offer.
