- Why Puerto Banús
Puerto Banús is one of the major attractions of the Costa del Sol. Every year around 5 million tourists come here to enjoy all the luxuries of the Costa del Sol. Here you can go shopping in the most glamorous shops of the Costa del Sol and go out in one of the many nightclubs. In Puerto Banús people are always looking for that extra touch. This makes it one of the most exclusive marinas in Europe.
In Puerto Banús, the port itself is of course the center of attention. Here is room for more than 900 boats. Many yachts stay there permanently and are only used as holiday homes. In addition to the view of the yachts, you will also encounter many luxurious sports cars that are driven or simply paraded by the owners.
The harbour, which opened in 1970, was built in the classic Andalusian style and therefore resisted high-rise buildings. However, the founder of the port, José Banús, first wanted the port to be surrounded by skyscrapers, but after a few meetings with the architect, he understood that this would be out of place here.
José Banús is honored in the harbor in different ways. You will find his statue at the entrance of the marina and there is also la Avenida Jose Banús. This is almost a walk of fame of the port where the city council of Marbella has paid several starfish tributes to the locals who have done a lot for the city.
