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!!

“Fantastic place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2014

This has to be one of my favourite places for a holiday, with a choice of many different types of food, all kinds of boat rides available and lovely shops to buy souvenirs and clothes. Lovely bars to have a drink and a dance at.

“Crazy Marina!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2014

We've been visiting the Marina since it opened - it still reminds us of a pile of meringues. A fun place with good shops and eating places - and you can gawp at the luxury yachts moored in the marina!

“marina visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2014

Myself and my partner visited the marina in May. It has an array of shops and places to eat. You can go on a boat trip or just sit in the relaxed surroundings and enjoy the sun. I would recommend you visit as the architecture is amazing. It is a good place to leisurely walk round.

“A Vibrant Family Area”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2014

Benalmadena port is a developed area with luxury flats surrounded by shops & restaurants. There is a wide range of attractions for families, with a good choice of boat trips available. There are good parking facilities for which there is a reasonable charge. The port is also adjacent to the beach. The restaurants vary from the ubiquitous pizza and burger joints to steakhouses and good standard italians. In all there is something for everyone.

“Buzzing”

Amazing place. Very busy and buzzing. Nice to sit on an evening and have a drink looking out over the marina. Lots of coffee bars, restaurants, bars and loads of trips to go on.
