Situated on the Costa del Sol in southern Spain, Puerto Banus is Marbella’s flashy neighbour. With a glistening marina filled to the brim with million dollar yachts and streets that are lined with designer shops, Puerto Banus is a great place for a luxurious break without having to break the bank.
Designed by local property developer Jose Banus in 1970, Puerto Banus was built to attract the jet-setting celebrities of its time. The port was opened with an extravagant and sophisticated party which was attended by the likes of Hugh Hefner and Princess Grace of Monaco. This party set the benchmark for the lavish lifestyle Puerto Banus wanted to provide for its visitors.
Nowadays, Puerto Banus is still very stylish and is becoming more popular year by year. If you visit, expect to spend your day poolside in one the exclusive beach clubs and in the evening you can enjoy a few drinks at one of the many bars in town. In between the pools and the bars you can take a stroll on the beach, dine in the amazing restaurants in town or even take a little trip to nearby Marbella.
