Puerto Banus is the internationally famous yachting marina with leisure and shopping facilities. The port was constructed in the 1970´s and has been made in to a vibrant shopping, nightlife and exotic area. The port is a special place and you can spot the most expensive and largest yachts and cars here. Designers like Gucci, Dolce & Gabbanna, Versace and Louis Vuitton all have shops to full fill the shopping needs of the wealthy visitors and residents.
Puerto Banus is right next to its glamorous big sister, Marbella. And it’s every bit as glitzy. A Spanish alternative to St Tropez, this party port is all about the see-and-be-seen lifestyle. We’re talking a marina packed with sleek millionaires’ yachts. Shiny super-cars purring through the streets. And a shopping scene that’s all about names – Chloe, Louis Vuitton and Gucci, it’s all here. You can almost smell the money. So it’s little wonder it’s such a hit with the jet-set. Everyone from celeb royalty to real-life royals have been papped on their summer holidays here. It’s not unusual to see the likes of Simon Cowell or the Beckhams strolling along the seafront. But that’s just the famous face of Puerto Banus. On the flipside of the coin, you’ve got a kilometre of golden sand, high street shops and some of Spain’s best golf courses. And there’s still a trace of authentic Spain to be found, too. Head away from the super clubs and champagne bars of the marina and you’ll discover plenty of tapas bars and pavement cafés. That said, if your pockets are deep enough – check out some of the celebrity haunts like the Ivy Marbella and Nikki Beach to mingle with those beautiful people, use the search for Puerto Banus holiday properties.
