Puerto Marina -Benalmádena’s marina
Did you know that Benalmádena’s marina, Puerto Marina, has been named the most beautiful harbour in Europe time and time again? And that it is also known as Spain’s ‘modern Venice’? The marina is definitely worth taking a look at during your stay in Benalmádena. Stunning yachts and boats sail to the Costa del Sol from all over the world and moor in Puerto Marina. The boat lovers among you should definitely keep a lookout! And don’t forget to take your camera with you.
Apart from being an impressive harbour, Puerto Marina is also the perfect place to wander along narrow streets, cross beautiful bridges and look around the numerous shops, which sell a wide range of clothing and authentic souvenirs. The most vibrant restaurants, terraces, bars and night clubs Benalmádena has to offer, are also located at Puerto Marina. Here you can enjoy a drink, an ice cream, a delicious Spanish or international meal and the vibrant night life, all with a breath-taking view of the Mediterranean Sea and the richly coloured sunsets of the Costa del Sol.
For those who enjoy a more active holiday, Puerto Marina is a wonderful place to book excursions and trips. A wide range of activities are on offer here too, such as boat trips, dolphin spotting tours and even extreme sports such as paragliding. As well as all this, the famous marina is the location for the nearly equally as famous Sea Life Aquarium, where children (and adults) can delight in more than 2000 sea creatures. In addition, there is a boulevard that starts in Puerto Marina and stretches all the way to the next town of Torremolinos. If you want to explore more of Costa del Sol’s stunning coastline, then taking a long walk along this boulevard is a must.
