Puerto Banus is a harbour resort about 8 mins or less from Marbella town by taxi. It is very upmarket. It has wonderful designer shops in it - most of which in high season are open to 2am around main port. Others in area are open to 10pm. It is mainly a pedestrianised zone - although some cars are allowed in to port - these are only allowed to people who have a port licence.
The port always has lots of wonderful yachts docked - some of whom belong to famous people - depends how good you are at people spotting. Other celebrities have villas in the area and might well be spotted around the port.
is impossible to go hungry as there are loads of different restaurants - admittedly more Italian than anything else. Over the 3 years I have been visiting Puerto Banus have ate in lots of different ones. One of my favourites is Red Pepper which is on front line of port.Read More
Although Puerto is renowned to be expensive and it is - eating out depends on how much you want to spend and how lavish a meal and service you want.
Puerto Banus is centre of nightlife and there are numerous bars/clubs etc. to suit all sorts of people. The resort also has a couple of lapdancing clubs.
Personally I do not visit nightclubs etc. so cannot comment on them but anybody who I have spoken to who has visited them, say they enjoyed themselves.
Walk away from main port and you come to a large department store which stocks literally everything. There are also other restaurants away from main port, plus lots of hotels etc.
If you want a taxi - you have to go to the cab rank and probably queue for one if it is at a busy time of night.
There are a couple of private beach clubs where you can hire a comfortable sun lounger - I can\'t comment on them as haven\'t been to them. There is also a public beach which again I have not visited.
