Puerto Banús

Puerto Benús is well-known around the world as one of Europe’s most exclusive harbours, where the rich and famous of the world keep their luxury yachts when holidaying in Marbella. 

The marina was built in the 1970’s by local property developer José Banús as an exclusive and luxury marina and shopping complex. Now one of the largest entertainment centres on the Costa del Sol, Puerto Banús sees some five million annual visitors, including the world’s wealthy and A-list celebrities.

The streets of Puerto Banús are lined with exclusive boutiques and shops, including Versace and Dolce & Gabbana, exquisite restaurants, lively bars and entertainment for all ages. Puerto Banús also offers two shopping centres.

The marina itself offers berths for 915 yachts, home to the vessels of international celebrities, entrepreneurs and royalty, including the yacht of the King of Saudi Arabia. The port offers beaches on either side, with world-famous beach clubs including Ocean Club, popular among celebrities during the summer months. The beaches are also lined with traditional Spanish chiringuitos, each offering fresh fish dishes, including the famous barbequed sardines.

During the day, Puerto Banús is popular among shoppers and café-goers admiring the luxury yachts and sports cars that fill the marina. During the evening, the port offers spectacular nightlife at its local bars and nightclubs, as well as fine dining in some of the most exquisite restaurants on the Costa del Sol.
