Puerto Banús is Costa del Sol’s playground for the rich and famous, who continue coming here for the beaches, the beach clubs and the buzzing nightlife. This is also where you find the most exclusive designer shops on the coast. Puerto Banus is a world famous brand and this is where you will spot artists, actors, models and professional football players. If sports cars and big boats are more your thing, don’t worry, there are plenty of Ferraris and luxury yachts to admire. Puerto Banus was built in 1970, to attract the jet set of the world, and also to allow owners of over-sized yachts to dock, since there was no option for them to make port nearby. Welcome to the hottest beach clubs and night clubs in Spain and the best spot for people watching on the coast!
Maybe it is the sight of all those yachts and Lamborghinis that stirs your hunger for a high-end lifestyle. And if you are one of those who cannot afford a EURO 300,000 car, at least you can indulge yourself with a EURO 300 belt. For that shopaholic side of yours, you will find around Puerto Banús Marina specialist stores for all the major high-end brands, whether you prefer Armani, Louis Vuitton, Gucci, D&G or Dior. If your credit card has not yet fainted from overexertion, you can end your shopping spree at El Corte Inglés Puerto Banús (Spain’s main brand for high-end department stores) or, right in front, at Marina Banús Shopping Centre, where you can also find some Spanish brand shops such as Massimo Dutti or the ever present Zara.
Puerto Banús shows a different face at night, when a glamorous crowd of wealthy people and celebrities mixes with a slightly less glamorous group of want-to-be celebrities in many of the clubbing venues that Banús has to offer, such as Tibu and Pangea around the Marina or La Sala and Aqwa Mist on the other side of the road. Maybe the best image for the type of luxurious and splurging lifestyle that Puerto Banús can be a symbol of would be the champagne spray parties that take place every once in a while at the beachside Ocean Club. Here, you can show the world how little you care for money (or at least fake it for a while) by literally showering yourself with bottles of Moët champagne.
