Puerto Banus - Disappointing
I recently went on a golfing trip located inland from Marbella. The golfing was fantastic and later that evening my friends and I wanted to sample the local nightlife. We were advised to go to Puerto Banus where there is an abundance of bars and clubs.
It was busy with mostly Brits and lots of pretty women. But something about this place wasn't quite right. It didn't take long to work out that practically all the beautiful ladies were either nightclub dancers or prostitutes. There were very few legitimate female tourists and being a single guy, I like the prospect of meeting decent single women. However, after chatting to several girls, they soon dropped the question, "Would you like some business - 300 euros?"
The Spanish don't seem to regulate these popular destinations. I've got nothing against hookers, but they should have an established area for whores, like Amsterdam, rather than ply their trade in clubs. Verdict - there are better places in Spain.
For dinner or to watch the huge yachts!
Puerto Banus is a very cosmopolitan marina, with many restaurants, bars, shops. People usually come here to walk around but you can also have dinner in Puerto Banus as its restaurants are among the best in Marbella.
There is a large parking in front of it, so , if you're driving, you will not have any problems parking it.
Here you can also see the huge yachts anchored, from all over the world. It's a very lively place and , specially at night , it gets very partying.

We stayed a very short time in Puerto Banus,just 15 minutes!! the boat we took was the last one and we arrived there at 5.45 p.m and the boat departs at just 6.00 p.m so I just had the time to have a fast coffe at Puerto Banus promenade.This place is very exclusive and luxury,so all cafeterias and pubs in the promenade are very expensive!!! one coffe it cost 3 Euros,and a coke can cost between 5 to 10 Euros!! so is better don't get drunk here,at least if you aren't a millionaire man!! :-)
You'll see some luxury apartment complex along all the sea promenade,sourrounded by gardens,palm trees and fountains.
This piece of sculpture was a gift of Russian citizens who live here to the former Marbellas' Major, Mr. Gil. It tries to represent an inhabitant of Marbella.
Esta escultura fue un regalo de ciudadanos rusos que viven aquí al antiguo alcalde de Marbella, el señor Gil. Intenta representar a un residente de Marbella.
Marina - Puerto deportivo
Puerto Banus is one of the most luxurious marinas in the Mediterranean Sea. Taking a walk along the port you will have the chance to see some of the most impressive yachts and cars! You can enjoy the magnificent restaurants, cafes and shops that surround the port. The small streets inside the port are crowded with pubs and discotheques too. You arrive to Puerto Banus from town-centre by road along the 'Golden Mile', in 10 minutes, or by sea, as there are boats that carry passengers from the Leisure Port in Marbella to Puerto Banus regularly. And don't panic! Prices are not as high as you could think, at less not in every place.
Puerto Banús es uno de los puertos deportivos más lujosos del Mediterraneo. ¡Dando un paseo por el puerto puedes tener lá oportunidad de ver algunos de los modelos más impresionantes de yates y coches! También puedes disfrutar de los magníficos restaurantes, cafeterías y tiendas que rodean al puerto. Puedes llegar aquí por carretera a través de la "milla de oro" desde el centro de la ciudad en 10 minutos, o por mar, en alguno de los barcos que llevan pasajeros desde el puerto de Marbella hasta Puerto Banús. ¡Y no te asustes! Los precios no son tan elevados como puedas imaginarte, al menos no en todos los sitios.
Never before have I personally been exposed to such wealth! Aaaah Puerto Banus... dine at TGI Fridays and watch the Bentleys and Ferraris drive by... drip ice-cream on your Old Navy jeans in front of a multi-million dollar yacht complete with private guards... fight the old lady int he 1980 Claude Montana blazer for the last silk blouse at Zara or Mango... what a clash of high and low!

Puerto banus is a must
Puerto Banus is located just west of Marbella, before you reach the small town of San Pedro de Alcantara. This is the place to be pampered yachtside and ogle those fabulous luxury yachts while sipping a drink at one of the many open air restaurants and bars. The setting is close to ideal, with its impressive mountain backdrop and ocean views.
Since its inception some forty years ago, the port has steadily grown and now features a casino, commercial shopping centre, a Corte Ingles department store, marine observatory and a multi cinema with films shown with their original soundtrack.
Nightlife buzzes at Puerto Banus with your choice of alfresco bars, piano clubs and discos while during the day this is a window shopper´s dream with several of the world renowned fashions houses featured here, in addition to small, interesting shops and boutiques.

For The Rich & Famous, And The Beautiful
Just go West of Marbella and visit Puerto Banus; the "high-life and night-life" will begin for you! Wealthy, fashionable and glamorous people welcome you at their parties you'll never forget again!
This is too much to watch this fabulous catwalk of luxury yachts, pampering Puerto Banus and its public. Although an ideal, fashionable setting with beautiful ocean views ...
While bewildered by its abundance, the marine place will show you why about 5 million visitors come here every year. Well, most visitors come to watch the boats, ... euhhh, yachts! And the Ferrari's, and the Porsches ... and the ladies. You know where rich men are ... the beautiful ladies ... ... ...

Check Out the Yachts in the Harbor
Take a stroll down the dock and get a glimpse of the life of the wealthy international crowd that make an intermediate stop here. Many are coming from the Balearic Islands and others from ports much farther away. Especially take time to check out the yachts and sailboats in the harbor and brush up on your nautical lingo while hobknobbing with a mixture of people.

Fast Cars & Beautiful People
We travelled to Puerto Banus on an empty stomach having missed the hotel breakfast, so we stopped at the first place we came to for some food. This was Jacks - an American themed restaurant on the harbour.
We sat outside and ate pizza whilst watching Ferraris, Mercedes et etc cruising past - oh how the other half live eh?
There are some wonderful shops around the harbour but bring your credit card and extend your overdraft as it's all rather expensive!!

for normal people, just for a walk, some shopping, going out ... lol you can go there without being rich ...
Flashy and Fun
Puerto Banus is worth a short visit if you are in Marbella. If you have alot of money to spend, love to shop, and have the extra time, come here for the high-end shopping, expensive restaurants and bars, and nightclubs. If you don't have extra money but you have a little extra time, stroll down the nice harbor front and look at the yachts and dream you are rich. If you don't have extra money or extra time, skip it - there is more to see in other places in and around Marbella.
