Who’s Behind Everything Marbella?

Hola, I’m Charlie, the heart and soul behind Everything Marbella. For over 20 years, I’ve called this sun-drenched city home, weaving myself into its very fabric and becoming a bona fide Marbella aficionado in the process.

From the historic cobbled streets to the glamorous yacht-lined marinas, I’ve explored every facet of Marbella, making friends with locals, mingling with fellow expatriates, and enjoying the myriad of cultural experiences that this city offers. My intimate knowledge of Marbella’s beaches, eateries, cultural hotspots, and hidden gems is what makes me your go-to guide.

As a seasoned blog writer and avid photographer (check out my Instagram) I’ve dedicated myself to sharing the essence of Marbella with the world. Everything Marbella isn’t just a hub of information; it’s a reflection of my understanding and love for this city. Let’s uncover the magic of Marbella together – where every corner tells a story, and every moment is an opportunity to fall in love with this coastal haven, just as I did. Join me in celebrating Marbella, not just as a place but as an experience that will captivate your heart.


I moved to Marbella while I was still in school, grew up in Marbella itself and have since lived all over the coast.

Over the 20+ years I’ve been on the Costa del Sol I’ve lived in these areas:

I’m also a fully qualified PADI scuba diving instructor! While I don’t work in the diving industry, I make the most of living next to the Mediterranean and dive with friends often, and sometimes teach courses to help them gain experience and qualifications.
