Between Marbella and Estepona lies Puerto Banus. Renowned as a holiday resort and home to the rich and famous, Puerto Banus offers one of the best year round climates in Europe. Puerto Banus was opened in May 1970 by the developer Jose Banus. Situated only 5km to the east of one of the Costa del Sol largest beach resorts, Marbella, Puerto Banus has become one of the most famous ports in Europe. Until 10 years ago, Puerto Banus was so exclusive only a few people had actually heard of it, but in recent years 'The Port' has grown and what once consisted of just two roads and a marina has now developed into an International Resort. The focal point of Puerto Banus is, of course, its port, which has berths for 915 boats, including those belonging to world's wealthiest individuals. The ostentation of the boats is only matched by that of the cars and the designer clothing and the grandfathers taking their granddaughters for a cruise round the port, well that is what it looks like anyway. Puerto Banus still has a lot to offer visitors on less extravagant budgets and a visit to the port is one of the best things to do on the Costa del Sol. Why not take a walk around the marina, drink or dine in one of the many bars and restaurants. As one of the liveliest beach resorts. Puerto Banus has a good share of beach clubs. Try Plaza Beach, Buda Beach, Mistral, AzÃºcar Beach, Soul Beach, the Ocean Club... There is also a good choice of night life in Puerto Banus. Puerto Banus has something for everyone. Beyond the port, in an area of 10 km of circumference, up to 9 Golf Courses can be enjoyed even at night as they are lit up. The choice is completed with a bull fighting ring, offering significance summer concerts, a casino, international tennis clubs, etc. Puerto Banus has also witnessed many important events and competitions in its history.
