for hotels in Marbella and Puerto Banus
Banus Tourist Information by Gary Marshall
marina of Puerto Banus is one of the best-known attractions on the Costa
del Sol. Situated to the west of Marbella, this marina was the brainchild
of Madrid-based property developer, Jose Banus, who wanted to create something
that would attract the international elite. Puerto Banus was designed by
architects Marcos Sainz and Noldi Schreck, who took their inspiration from
traditional Andalucian fishing villages. The result is an attractive harbour
lined with bars, cafes, restaurants and expensive boutique-style shops.
Puerto Banus Marina, Marbella, Malaga Province, Andalucia, Spain.
After its official opening in 1970, Puerto Banus soon began to attract
the rich and famous as its creator had originally intended. Huge mega-yachts,
owned by the likes of Saudi Arabia's King Fahd, and Monaco's Prince Rainier
and Princess Grace, were often moored in the marina. More recently, actor
Banderas and his wife Melanie Griffiths have both been spotted
here. Puerto Banus is especially renowned for its bars, restaurants
and nightclubs. Situated at the entrance to the port is the small Sinatra's
bar, which has become a popular meeting place in the resort....
