Often referred to as the playground of the rich and famous, the stylish port features a large offering of vibrant beach clubs, elegant restaurants and lavish nightlife, making this the entertainment and shopping hub of the Costa del Sol.
Known above all for its glamorous marina lined with large super yachts and surrounded by luxury designer label outlets, trendy nightclubs and panoramic restaurants overlooking the yacht harbour, Puerto Banús offers a lot more besides.
In addition to being the nightlife mecca of Marbella, you will also find a shopping destination second to none, with elegant boutiques and designer brand outlets such as Dior, Dolce & Gabbana, Hermes and Louis Vuitton to choose from.
The area is also home to Spain’s iconic department store El Corte Inglés, which offers several storeys of clothing, luxury accessories, home decoration and electronic goods.
Just across the road is Marina Banus, one of several shopping malls in an area that also offers a cinema with the latest releases in original soundtrack, beach clubs, art galleries, fine dining and a summer night market.
But Puerto Banus is also a residential area, with beachside penthouses and luxury apartment complexes set within lush gardens close to all the action, and frontline beach apartments and villas with open sea views to be found further along the shore. A villa in Puerto Banus is one of the most coveted properties in the whole of Marbella.
In the marina itself, elegant whitewashed apartments overlook the sparkling water of the port, while the picturesque La Concha mountain provides a scenic and soothing backdrop.
The entrance to Puerto Banús is also home to a beautiful monumental sculpture of a Rhinoceros, known as Le Rhinocéros habillé en dentelles (Rhinoceros dressed in lace), created by Salvador Dali in 1956.18th Jul, 2017 by Manolo Alarcon
