Locality: Puerto Banus is part of Marbella, before you reach the small town of San Pedro de Alcantara.
This is the place to be pampered yachtside and ogle those fabulous luxury yachts while sipping a drink at one of the many open air restaurants and bars. The setting is close to ideal, with its impressive mountain backdrop and ocean views.
Since its inception some forty years ago, the port has steadily grown and now features a casino, commercial shopping centre, a Corte Ingles department store, marine observatory and a multi cinema with films shown with their original soundtrack.
Nightlife buzzes at Puerto Banus with your choice of alfresco bars, piano clubs and discos while during the day this is a window shopper´s dream with several of the world renowned fashions houses featured here, in addition to small, interesting shops and boutiques.
Weather: Located between the Sierra Blanca mountains and the Mediterranean, Marbella enjoys it's own mild micro-climate. The temperatures below are average daily shade temperatures. It's shorts and 'T' shirts for the vast majority of the year, and a light jersey is generally adequate during winter months!
Along the coast and you can see the Rock of Gibraltar. Look to the left of the Rock (out to sea) and you can see the Altas mountains of North Africa. Given the closeness of Marbella to the deserts of Africa, it is no surprise that the sun shines for approx. 320 days per year and that the residents value every day when rain falls.
