    OFICINA MUNICIPAL DE TURISMO

    Turismo Oficina
    1 more image

    Favorite thing: I thought I would stop in at the OFICINA MUNICIPAL DE TURISMO to see what kind of brochures they had and what there was to do here. First of all, it was a very small office and they really didn't have anything to offer me, not even a map. They only had the usual brochures of the attractions available in the area. Sniff Sniff - nothing for my scrapbook.

    NUESTRA SENORA DEL CARMEN

    Our Lady and Child

    Favorite thing: Right near the Harbour area, you will see a lovely little chapel dedicated to NUESTRA SENORA DEL CARMEN. It is all enclosed, with a little slot to slip in your donation. It really is beautiful to see "Our Lady and Child" looking over the Harbour and perhaps protecting the sailors that pass by.

    La Torre

    Favorite thing: Located near the Harbour is the watchtower LA TORRE. I tried to find out a little bit about this Tower but did not have any success. We did have a peek inside and you'll never guess what it is used for --- a Bank. Yes I said --- a Bank. The upper area of the Tower had curtains on the windows, so perhaps it contains living quarters??? Hey, it must be a fabulous view from up there.

    Puerto Banus since the 70´s

    by Carmela71 Updated Mar 6, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Puerto Jose Banus was inaugurated in May of 1970.

    When José Banús gave his name to this famous port none though it would become as famous as it had happened being one of the most famous marinas in Europe.

    Now Puerto Banús is synonymous with wealth, fashion, glamorous parties and the 'highlife & nightlife'.

    The "place to be" and "to be seen".

    Different looking boat.

    Favorite thing: Look at this one ,this different ,it looks like a boat from an Asian country, I forgot to find out where this boat was from , it sure looks different from the other ones.
    It does have a Spanish flag ,so it might be a local boat.

    Puerto Banus Tower

    by Carmela71 Updated Mar 6, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Puerto Banus is one of the world’s most famous holiday destinations.

    That’s why many British pop stars and Hollywood movie stars come often in summer.

    Few other small towns in the world can boast such notoriety.

    The beach

    Beach at Purto Banus
    4 more images

    Favorite thing: The beach is great at Puerto Banus, in the way that it's a great place to take the kids. The bottom is sand all the way out, and the piers make it safe for the smallest.
    You have to come early if you want to park nearby, but an alternative is to park next to the Casino on the other side of the highway. From there there is a pedestrian tunnel under the highway, and the walk down isn't to bad.
    Sundays the Spanish families go to the beach, and it get's real crowded.
    There is much better space at the beach in nearby San Pedro, but it's more rocky and not that ideal for kids. Parking is a lot easier though.

    The Saturday market

    The Saturday market

    Favorite thing: On Saturdays there is a market at the area above the Bullring in Nueva Andalucia. There is a slight difference with this market compared to the Thursday market at nearby San Pedro. There you can get friut and vegetables, while at the Saturday market here you will find more of things like leather ware, art and furniture. Both markets have the usual clothes, handbags, sunglasses and other cheap stuff.
