Puerto Banus Holiday Villas 2017 | Villa Plus

Holiday Villas in the Resort of Puerto Banus

Puerto Banus, six kilometres away from downtown Marbella, is estimated to attract 4,400,000 visitors a year. It is a millionaire’s playground with the ultra-chic marina as its focal point. Marbella’s world-famous port continues to attract the jet-set, so if you enjoy celebrity-watching as a sport just take a front row seat at one of the waterside cafés, and be prepared to pay quite a lot for your coffee. (You will need a copy of Hello magazine for last minute swotting.) The marina has berths for 915 boats, some of which belong to the world’s wealthiest people. Don’t expect a Happy Hour at any bar round here! Puerto Banus is Marbella´s answer to the Champs Élysées, and home to the biggest names in fashion such as Dolce & Gabbana, Louis Vuitton, Fendi, Armani, Prada, Valentino and Jimmy Choo. The high end shopping is matched by luxury apartments, night clubs, piano bars and gourmet restaurants. To get away from it all, boat trips to various destinations are available from the central promenade.

Exploring Puerto Banus On Villa Holidays
Puerto Banus

Plaza de los Naranjos or Orange Square in the heart of Old Marbella is considered to be one of the most beautiful plazas in the Costa del Sol. The square was constructed in 1485 design on the orders of King Ferdinand, who wanted a Castilian plaza. It takes its name from the orange trees growing there which perfume the whole area when they are in bloom. It is steeped in history – for example, the City Hall was built here by the mayor Juan de Pisa in 1568, and the fountain in the middle of the square was built in 1604. The buildings around the square are whitewashed in the Andalusian style. At night, candles from the many restaurant tables light the square, which makes it a very romantic setting for a meal. Plaza de los Naranjos is surrounded by a maze of narrow streets and tiny squares, well worth exploring.

There is a magnificent statue of a rhino by Salvador Dali at the Cristamar roundabout entrance to Puerto Banus. It is a known as the Rinoceronte Vestido Con Puntillas - The Rhinoceros Dressed in Lace - and it stands on a granite pedestal. A businessman donated it to the city in 2004 to celebrate the centenary of Dali's birth. It is 26 metres high and weighs three tons. Dalí created the amazing sculpture in 1956 after the making of his surrealist film “La aventura prodigiosa de la encajera y el rinoceronte” ("The prodigious adventure of the lacemaker and the rhinoceros") in 1954.

The Golden Mile is actually 4 miles. It starts slightly west of downtown Marbella starts and runs all the way to Puerto Banus. This is where you find Marbella's most luxurious and exclusive villas and estates with spectacular views of mountain and sea, such as the Palace of King Fahd, as well as some landmark hotels including the Melia Don Pepe, the Hotel Marbella Club and the Puente Romano Hotel.

On Saturday mornings Puerto Banus holds a market in the town's bullring a short walk from the marina. This will inflict rather less damage to your wallet than other shopping areas in the town, and might also be more fun! You can buy local fruit and veg, handmade ceramics, spices and hand-carved wooden boxes.
