Located a few kilometres west of wonderful Marbella, Puerto Banus is a peaceful marina in the heart of the Costa del Sol. Holidays to Puerto Banus are spectacular if you’re looking for a beautiful setting matched by ocean views and a mountainous backdrop. This sophisticated marina is known as one of Europe’s top party destinations, but the luxurious hotels, long blonde beaches and high-end boutiques and pretty squares make Puerto Banus holidays so much more.
The pleasant climate makes holidays to Puerto Banus an ideal choice for sun-seekers. This quaint marina has it all – from a buzzing nightlife scene to beautiful Blue Flag beaches, luxury boutiques, fast cars and extravagant yachts – it’s no surprise it’s known as the St Tropez of Andalucia. The resort is also famous for its beach clubs, from Ocean Club Marbella to Nikki Beach, or even an afternoon spent in the quirky Astral cocktail bar.
If you fancy a change of pace, swap the champagne bars for the authentic Old Town, where the hustle and bustle of the horseshoe promenade is replaced by winding cobbled streets spilling with shops, local tapas joints and bars to eat, drink and unwind in – including the gorgeous hidden gem that is “Plaza de los Naranjos”, or, Orange Square. For those wanting to explore the resort, hire a bicycle or walk the Golden Mile, almost 5 miles in total, where you’ll pass popular squares, parks and landmarks including Plaza de la Iglesia, Paseo Maritimo and the Marbella Lighthouse. Equally, you can navigate around the resort via boat, with plenty of day trips leaving from the port. Puerto Banus holidays are as much for kids as they are for adults, with bundles of activities to enjoy held in the main square.
