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 area”
Reviewed March 29, 2013

Lovely to walk around and see the flashy boats loads of bars and restaurants to choose from - a little pricier but to be expected. Watch out for everyone trying to talk you into the bars - it can get a bit tedious!

“Another Marina”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

It is very similar to many other Marinas & seems to have a great many bars & restaurants who think they can charge a lot of money rather than the going rate for coffees, beers etc,

“Very smart !”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

Lovely shopping area grest to look at the boats in the harbour (big and small) pleasant for shopping or just strolling around. Some of the restaurant and boat owners were a bit pushy bit didn't seem to take offence when you said no.

“Unique marina”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

A lovely marina full of beautiful boats and surrounded by fabulous apartments of a unique design. Fabulous restaurants of all kinds. A breakfast of thick hot chocolate and churros is a great way to start the day.

“A Refreshing change from the rest of the resort”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

Good place to people watch, eat drink & be merry. Its a contrast from the rest of Benalmadena, although the touts can pester too at times
