The Costa del Sol region
What was just a small Andalusian fishing-village ,Marbella/Puerto Banus, has been turned into one of the most exciting holiday resorts along the Mediterranean coast and one of the favourite places of the rich and beautiful. It was, however, in the 90's when Marbella began to be recognized as a "Universal City". The political action of Mayor Jesus Gil in the last decade of the 20th Century has significately developed the city. The Infrastructure, Cultural Centres, sporting installations, Municipal Offices, Golf Courses, New Avenues, Parks, etc and the encouragment of investors to come to the city have made Marbella/Puerto Banus a city to be visited by ALL.
Great beaches, great climate (with an average temperature of 18,7 deg.C all the year) and it only rains occasionally in November and March (the rain being insignificant the rest of the year), the wind blows frequently from the East and the weather is sunny more than 320 days a year.
Marbella offers a never-ending list of places of natural beauty mixed with avenues, parks, botanic gardens, the promenades, leisure areas, sports, gastronomy and entertainment that will make your stay highly enjoyable.
Puerto Banus is named after José Banús who was a real estate developer working in Andalucia and the Marina is one of the most important ports on the Mediterranean coast.
There are 915 tying-in points on the two piers, Ribera and Benabolá. In the clear blue waters the most luxurious yachts in the world have anchored and slept: the Nabila of the magnate Adnan Kashoggi, the Príncipe Abdulazis, the Tritona, and the Shaf. The port has been declared a Centre of International Tourist Interest and among its many honours has the Gold Medal for Merit in Tourism.
Real-estate developer José Banús took three years to build this famous marina and it was fomally opened in 1970 by Prince Rainier of Monaco and his wife, Grace Kelly. It cost 915 million ptas (€5,499,261)
With hundreds of restaurants to chose from in and around Puerto Banus/Marbella there is always somewhere new to go.

For shopping, there is a Saturday morning Street Market by the Bullring in Puerto Banus for every nic-nak and more, El Cortes Ingles department store and the designer boutiques in Puerto Banus and the huge shopping mall at La Canada in Marbella.
Gibraltar is less than an hour away by car, take your passport and go over to Africa on foot for the day on a ferry.
