Puerto Banus - the Glamorous heart of the Costa del Sol. Love it or hate it Puerto Banus cannot be ignored!
The marina with its impressive display of large boats and cruisers is surrounded by all the major designer shops and a continual parade of exotic cars makes it an exciting and envigorating place to visit.
Puerto Banus has grown considerably since its original conception as a Marina surrounded by shops and restaurants and is now a town in its own right. It is home to the El Corte Ingles department store and there is also a wide variety of independent shops and boutiques which will have your credit cards jumping out of your pocket.
The nightlife is legendary and there is a natural progression from the wide choice of quality restaurants via the “early” bars to the clubs and late night bars which in the summer season are always busy into the early hours of the morning.
During the daytime the beaches are a major focus and in addition to the traditional chiringuitos and beach bars there is also a good choice of up market beach clubs which attract the movers and the shakers with a combination of parties, live music and food and drinks.
Property prices in and around Puerto Banus tend to be at premium levels although it is still possible to buy a one bedroom “pied a terre” at prices from around 160,000 Euros.
