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!!

“Worth a visit”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

Had food in a few of the restaurants here with my family on a few occasions during a recent stay in Benalmadena. There is a decent choice - some very good and some are just average from our experience.

Shopping - there are shops here selling items inc clothes, toys, perfumes, souvenirs and sunglasses. Plenty to pass a couple of hours.

Lots of boats to see - all shapes and sizes, some of which were offering trips for very reasonable prices although we didnt get time to try these.

“Good night out.”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

If you want to see how the other half live this is for you. Boats that cost the earth, supercars driving over a drawbridge to get to their luxury apartments. Shops , were bargains can be found & various bars & restaurants.

“Memories”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

This place brings out so much memories because we spent with our three children when they were growing up so much time over there. Now that they went to college, our wish is to go back there again with them and revive some of those great years ! I hope that it has not changed !

“the whole buzz great @the marina”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

The Marina is beautiful @night, lots of people browsing around and lots of restaurants and shops. Watch your handbags @beach bars and marina. My friend's was stolen when she hung it over the back of her chair in a restaurant @beach and no one saw anything unusual, just be warned.
