Owner description: Located on the Costa del Sol, has proven itself as being one of the top marinas in the world. With many restaurants, shopping, attractions and nightlife. It has won the award "Best Marina in the World' several times. The Marina of Benalmadena officially opened in 1979, with the name "Port au Prince" but in1982 was named Puerto Marina Benalmadena. The thing that really stands out about the marina is its unique architecture/design, which has lead to its international recognition especially with our European tourists. Puerto Marina has a huge capacity to moor boats and yachts, with just over 1,000 moorings for boats from many different nationalities.  'Puerto Marina' is one of the Costa del Sol's busiest centres. There are loads of different shops including the shopping centre. On top of it all there is a large choice of quality restaurants. You are spoiled for choice. Fancy a drink or a dance? Or how about hitting a nightclub or pub? With well over 20 establishments, you will have difficultly to decide. Puerto Marina Benalmadena entails a big chunk of the town of Benalmadena and is a true touristic destination. There is also the  Harbour Master, hotels, and the beautiful promenade that leads to Puerto Marina Benalmadena Yacht Club. Plus, residential areas of luxury and an aquarium among other activities making it a destination for leisure tourism for the Med and it's beaches!

“Nice and clean”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

Lovely port, very clean, food not cheap but good quality. Boat trip not so exciting. Sea life centre a bit small and expensive. Worth a visit overall

“Nice area to visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

Lovely part of Benalmadena and worth a visit. We hired a Catamaran for 240 Euros for a couple of hours at the marina, but to be honest it was a bit of a waste of time and all we did was travel south towards Torreblanca for an hour and turn back. Idea was to allow the kids a chance to try fishing but despite assurances, all the crew did was stick two rods at the back of the boat. Better spend your cash at one of the nice restaurants in the marina.
