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!!

Marina area is full of shops and restaurants. Lovely place to take a stroll. Lots of boats available for trips out into the bay or to go to Malaga or Fuengirola .

A good way to visit Benelmadena Puerto Marina is by sea on the ferry from Fuengirola. It's a pleasant trip along the coast and relaxing. There are plenty of places to eat in the marina area but some of the restaurants can be a bit pushy. The better ones are around the area where the ferry comes in. The shops used to be excellent but they have gone a bit downmarket. Still a pleasant place to spend a few hours.

“Great place to Shop!”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

Marina lovely, nice stroll for walking off your breakfast or dinner. Although if you are going for food there are plenty of nice restaurants to choose from. We did lots of shopping!
You can also take a boat ride along the cost. Do some bartering to get yourself the best deal.
