One of the great things about Puerto Banus is that it is compact. Everything you need for a killer short break is right here in one place. You won’t waste time trekking to far-off nightclubs or searching bus timetables to get to the beach. This place was designed to have everything in one place, so from the moment you get here it’s fun,fun fun.

There is no credit card on earth that can’t be maxed out in Puerto Banus. If designer bling is your thing then you’ll have a blast strolling down the metaphorical catwalk that is the marina front. Shopping is, according to almost everyone, one of the things to do in Puerto Banus. Here you’ll find all the names that you’d normally associate with the quarto calles in Milan or the Champs Elysees in Paris – Luis Vuitton, Gucci, Jimmy Choo, Cartier and, er, Zara.
Leave your plastic locked up in the hotel safe if you want to be sure of avoiding temptation. Window shopping is free (as Eddie Izzard once said, until you take it out of the shop you’re just moving it). Go in, have a blast trying on all the designer gear, and walk out again (or re-mortgage the house and go wild, it’s up to you).
Be careful because the shops are open at night, and the stagger-by tourists are often the ones crashing the credit cards. So do the smart thing, pull on something comfortable, like a pair of Tom Ford jodphur-slacks, and pack into the shops with the horrendously rich and famous.
Sure, you can sit around in the sun watching the beautiful people stroll by. But sooner or later, you’ll want something to get your adrenaline pumping. We offer an action-packed range of activities to turn an empty-looking schedule into a mouth-watering pot-pourai of fun. Whether you want to beat the jet-set at jet-skiing, or show those yuppies how to handle their supercar (on the karting track), the Spain Event can sort it out.

In London if you want to make an impression then you park your Ferrari outside Harrods. In Puerto Banus, you park your yacht opposite the designer shops on the paseo maritime. Of course, the difference is that here there are dozens of million pound vessels lined up in the dock. Puerto Banus is right up there with the most exclusive marinas in the Mediterranean. Proxima parade, Monte Carlo!
Like any sane person visiting the Costa del Sol, you’ll no doubt be planning to spend a good chunk of your time on the beach. You’ll be eager to find things to do in Puerto Banus. Puerto Banus Marina is cradled by two beaches, one on each side, so you can be stretched out in the sun in no time. Of course, sun, sand and sea are only three of the four vital ingredients – the last is a large run cocktail, right?! Fortunately, in this part of the world, where there’s a beach, there is also a beach club, so an iced drink (and a sexy Spanish waiter/waitress) will be close at hand.
Head down to the beach in Puerto Banus and you’ll see some glitzy and daring swimwear on show. We’re not saying that the stag’s gold mankini will go totally unnoticed, but he won’t be the only one turning heads. There are plenty of svelt curves and muscular abs on show, and we dare say that not all of the bodies are 100% natural. As with everything else in PB, it’s a matter of “if you’ve got it, flaunt it”!
At a cool kilometre in length, Nueva Andalucia beach lies to the West of Puerto Banus Marina and has slightly darker sand than its counterpart to the East. Chiringuitos (beach bars), beach clubs and hotels are peppered along the sands. Also, if jetskiing or parapenting are on your itinerary, there is a designated area here for the aqua-adrenaline junkies.
Head east from the Marina and you’ll come across Levante Beach, the most popular of the resort’s beaches. With a blue fly flying testament to the water’s cleanliness, in the summer the 500m of sand are jam-packed with sun worshippers. Levante Beach has a board walk running along its length and a host of services for your comfort and convenience (beach bars, restaurants, sun loungers, parasols, massage, WC etc)
With one of the biggest swimming pools you are ever likely to set eyes on, hitting the Ocean Club is no-brainer if fancy a day of relaxation. Kick back on one of the circular sun loungers and peruse the ample menu of excellent food. Thai fusion tapas and a large mojito? Yep, that sounds about right…Watch out for the “champagne spray” parties which are held monthly in the summer – if you like your French bubbly, it doesn’t get better than this.
Smaller than the Ocean Club but just as recommended, La Sala provides the same can’t-go-wrong combination of sun-worshipping, great food, strong drinks, chilled tunes and full-on relaxation. Munch on some sushi to make up for the previous night’s toxin fuelled revelry, or sup on a bloody mary to ease into the day…total bliss. If you can’t get enough of the place then keep an eye out for their monthly peel parties in the summer.
