Living large in Puerto Banus

Well known as a playground for the rich and famous, Puerto Banus on Spain's Costa del Sol impresses travelers with its gorgeous white beaches, thrilling entertainment options, incredible shopping district and picturesque marina filled with luxury yachts. Warm days here are spent kicking back on the soft sand with a fruity drink in hand, watching the palm trees sway against a clear blue sky, while evenings call for sailing excursions to catch the sunset over the Mediterranean. With a range of luxury condos available featuring incredible views of the sea, you're sure to find the Puerto Banus vacation rental of your dreams.

Things to do

The luxurious life in Puerto Banus

The central attraction of Puerto Banus is the marina, thanks to the hundreds of extravagant yachts that dock here, some even belonging to royals. To soak up the full experience, take a stroll along the waterfront blocks, where an abundance of restaurants, high-end retailers, movie theaters, art galleries, casinos and more line the well-manicured streets and exotic sports cars often roll by. The harbor development was created in the 1970s as a luxury entertainment and shopping destination and has quickly grown into a favorite for the wealthy, so you'll want to keep your camera at the ready for any celebrity sightings.

Activities

Out on the water in Puerto Banus

With picture-perfect beaches on either side of the bustling Puerto Banus marina, there are plenty of spots to spread out on the soft sand, enjoying the mountain and sea views all around. Still, there's more to do than lounging and excursions out into the Mediterranean Sea offer the perfect way to join in the yachting fun. A number of companies offer fishing charters and dolphin-watching jaunts, but you can also book longer outings down the Costa del Sol to see the Rock of Gibraltar up close. Watersport rentals closer to shore are also available, from stand-up paddleboards to thrilling jet skis, banana boats and wakeboards.

Weather

Year-round sun in Puerto Banus

There's no bad time to visit the Costa del Sol, as the sun-drenched coast of southern Spain offers a pleasant year-round climate. Summers are hot, with temperatures sometimes hitting the 90s and calling for ice-cold beverages sipped seaside and refreshing dips in the water, while mild winters cool off for daytime highs in the 60s, perfect for walking around the shopping district. Temperate spring and fall days offer an escape from the summer crowds with just enough warmth in the air to enjoy some time spread out on the beach or lounging beside the pool at your Puerto Banus vacation rental.

Natural features

Mountain treks near Puerto Banus

From the fine sand of the beaches and the sparkling blue of the Mediterranean to the incredible mountain peaks rising in the distance, Puerto Banus is a scenic gem surrounded by incredible nature. Two of the mountains that beautify Puerto Banus, La Concha and El Juanar, are part of the Sierra Blanca range and offer a great spot for hiking just outside the city. Forested treks here offer sweeping vistas of the Costa del Sol and the chance to spot cute critters that call the mountains home. After a full day of hiking, it's just a quick ride back to your Puerto Banus vacation rental for well-deserved rest and relaxation
