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?

My 9 yr old wasnt that interested so I didnt see it all. We took the bus and missed the stop as there was no indication by the bus driver when to get off. It was a bit windy that day so we didnt hang around very long and didnt walk round all of it. It would be a nice walk one way and the buses ar fairly priced. 1.50 Euros each one way.

There is a good atmosphere about the Marina area with a large selection of shops, bars and restaurants. As the name suggests it backs onto the marina and a lot of the bars and restaurants have views out onto the marina which is virtually only a few feet away.

A number of stylish shops, great eateries and ice cream parlours and a view to die for. Soak up the view with a glass of sangria and try out the Segway tours for only 10 euros all around the marina - fantastic fun!!

Lots of nice boats but a bit tatty overall. Restaurants and Bars with a "Hard Sell" approach very off putting.

Some nice shops and good for a browse
