If you want to visit Puerto Banús to simply look at the beautiful superyachts lining the waterside berths of the marina you will not be disappointed. The glamourous yacht harbour is a remarkable sight on a sunny day, presenting arguably one of the world’s best collections of exclusive boats—the perfect illustration of a playboy’s paradise.
Visitors looking for a fine dining experience or atmospheric nightclub can also be assured that their expectations will be satisfied by the choice of establishments on offer, whether located by the marina itself or on its neighbouring streets. Puerto Banús is also famous as a haven for shoppers passionate about designer clothes stores, and all of the high end brands can be found here, from Gucci to Prada to Versace.
However, there is a great deal more to be enjoyed in Marbella’s nautical neighbour than just boat watching, eating and shopping; below are some of the interesting amenities and events that visitors can appreciate whilst spending time here.
The water taxi ferry
Take a delightful trip from Puerto Banús to Marbella, and back again, via the water taxi which departs on the hour every hour from the front of the marina. Ticket prices are very reasonable and the view from the ferry is never-endingly stunning.
Events in the white square
The main square ‘Plaza Antonio Banderas’, situated two minutes walk from the seafront, is utilised to host events throughout the year. Activities include markets selling clothes and gifts, ice skating and Christmas fairs featuring music and entertainment for children.
If you fancy a break from the beach or a night of interesting visual entertainment, head for the port’s impressive cinema complex. Cines Teatro Goya is situated at the marina end of the White square and shows a large programme of films, including subtitled and original language versions.
Located both to the left and the right of Puerto Banús harbour are two of the loveliest beaches to be found on the Costa del Sol. These invitingly broad areas of golden sands are not only good for sunbathing and swimming but they are also home to a selection of excellent chiringuitos, cafés and beach clubs.
