Located in the Nueva Andalucia suburb of Marbella is the famous superyacht-strewn marina of Puerto Banus, often marketed as Spain's answer to St. Tropez or Monaco. Perfect for a villa holiday in the heart of the Costa del Sol, you can spend your days perusing designer boutiques, being wowed by supercars and relaxing under the Spanish sun at glamourous beach clubs. With more than 300 days of sunshine and a gentle, agreeable temperature all year around, it’s a destination that is pretty wonderful whenever you decide to visit. For authenticity away from the water’s edge, charming narrow streets and market stalls in Plaza Antonio Banderas named after the famous actor are waiting to be explored, along with quieter bars and authentic Spanish tapas. Stroll around the picturesque marina framed by whitewashed Andalusian buildings and impressive mountains to experience a real buzz of activity. The area comes to life in the evening with its endless supply of lively bars, nightclubs and excellent waterside restaurants, where you can people-watch to your heart’s content and be awed by the twinkling yachts in the bay.
