Puerto José Banús, more commonly known as Puerto Banús is a marina located in the area of Nueva Andalucía, to the southwest of Marbella, Spain on the Costa del Sol. It was built in May 1970 by José Banús, a local property developer, as a luxury marina and shopping complex. It has since become one of the largest entertainment centres in the Costa del Sol, with 5 million annual visitors, and is popular with international celebrities.
Developed around a coastal village in the Mediterranean architectural style,Puerto Banús contains expensive shopping malls, restaurants and bars around the marina. It is also scene to many exotic cars that are owned by international celebrities and wealthy owners that also own large yachts. Luxury cars like Rolls Royce and high end sports cars like Ferrari’s, Lamborghinis and Mercedes Benz are a common sight in the summer months around Marbella and Puerto Banús.
These cars are brought to the eye of the public via huge showrooms and dealerships showcasing the latest supercars. And that was the reason for our visit to Puerto Banús, the famous Marbella Luxury Weekend !
This time we rented a car from Malaga center with the company Prima rent a car, we arrived the office at 10, and we got a nice car for a price of 70 euro for 1 day. They gave us a map with all the information about Marbella. From Malaga to Puerto Banús it’s about 70 KM, almost 1 hour. The scenery was very beautiful. We arrived at Puerto Banús in the late evening, and it was packed. A lot of nice cars, which we enjoyed very much, shopping, eating, and taking a lot of pictures. We had a lot of fun. Many rich people wondering around, nicely dressed and showing off. It was a good example of how rich people meet rich people.
At the promenade there was an opportunity to sample delicatessen products, to enjoy a moment of leisure enlivened by music and to exchange views with professionals dedicated to the different professional sectors represented in Marbella in the Luxury and High Class Sector.
After walking around for a while we went to some of the discotheques that were giving free entrances for that night, and enjojed the Marbella nightlife for a few more hours.
Thanks to Prima rent a car we had an incredible day in Puerto Banús. Really nice, we will rent a car with Prima again.
