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?

A bustling marina with lots of shops, bars and cafes. Ideal place to sit and while away an hour or two.

Visited the Marina a few times during June 2013 with family. We hired a Catamaran for 2hrs which took us out in to the med where we were able to stop and have a swim. The Marina has a lovely variety of shops and restaurants, some inside and some outside. There is a little ice cream shop by the Metro restaurant which is amazing!! You must try this. Very pretty when lit up in the night time too.

This is a lovely place - some nice shops and plenty of places to eat.Some of the boat trips are worth taking for a day out.

Always try to get an apartment/ villa a walk away from here when we go to Spain, the marina is a brilliant place to take a walk down, you get a few people offering boat trips, but none are pushy at all and take no for an answer

There is an area near a little café/ bar that you can buy stale bread and feed to the fish which is always nice and relaxing (and fun) there is a brilliant sweet shop and enough well priced resturants to take your pick from!

I have been on three different boat trips here and found that I preferred the normal boat trips to the catamaran one which made all members of the party slightly queasy!!
