Marbella. Puerto Banus

The Puerto Banus marina in Marbella

Spain’s most luxurious marina of Puerto Banus is located in the suburb of Marbella, Nueva Andalucia, 6 km west of the city center just before you reach the small town of San Pedro.

Even though it first can be perceived as a developed old Spanish fishing village with an impressive hillside in the background. But the fact is that Puerto Banus is designed and built in 1970 by the local developer Jose Banus as a luxury marina and shopping center.

Puerto Banus is known as the Costa del Sol’s playground for the rich and famous who come here for the beaches, beach clubs and the lively nightlife. Shops and restaurants reflect the expensive lifestyle with many upscale designers like Dior, Louis Vuitton, Dolce & Gabbana and Versace offered around the marina.

If you like to people watch and are visiting during the summer months it is never shortage of spotting celebrities and stars. If sports cars and large boats are more your thing, there are plenty of Ferraris and luxury yachts to admire.
