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!!

“Over-rated”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

Having read the reviews before I went I was expecting it to be spectacular but to be honest I found it to be tacky, busy and full of restaurants and bars that weren't that great.

On saying that, it was the best place to go to in Benalmadena in the evening and, going on my experience, the safest place to get the least hassle.

The walkway is very busy and overcrowded and full of sellers trying to flog fake goods. Unfortunately, they do let them into the bars and restaurants which is extremely annoying. The icecream stand by the Metro restaurant is the best one we found.

Take an evening boat trip for 5 euros for 30 minutes, it's good fun.

“Well worth a visit”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

This marina is well worth a visit whilst visiting the area. Lovely to stroll around whatever the time of day, although looks so pretty in the evening when lit up.

A good assortment of shops, some selling designer clothes, others with ceramics and wooden items. Prices ranging from high end to the 2 euro shop which sold a varied selection of goods all for the same price. Plenty of bars and restaurants also. Boat trips can be taken from the marina.

Something for everyone and very enjoyable to visit.
