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 to stroll around”
Reviewed March 3, 2014

When the sun gets too hot for the beach, or even on the odd rainy day, this is a nice place to take a stroll around and while away an hour or two. There are plenty of shops and cafe's to visit if you want to spend some money, but just walking around the interesting marina looking at the boats and novel architecture of the buildings is free.

“OK to visit once or twice”
Reviewed March 3, 2014

The marina is basically loads of bars, restaurants and shops surrounding a port with lots of boats tied up (but not as posh as the boats in Puerto Banus.
As someone else has said there is a lot of hustling with barmen trying to get you in for a drink/meal.
There are various boat trips on offer and I suppose it is worth a visit or two but it is a bit over-rated.

“Shop, drink and eat”
Reviewed March 2, 2014

Went each day for a stroll and sat and dreamt of which yacht we would buy while eating lunch. Best place to eat or just have a drink is the Port.
