One of the main tourist hubs on the Costa del Sol, Puerto Banús is the most glamorous marina in the Mediterranean. Its docks, with almost 1,000 berths, welcome the luxury yachts of well-to-do businessmen, tycoons and powerful sheikhs. Together withLa Duquesa in Manilva and Sotogrande in San Roque, the marina in Marbella makes an idyllic setting, ideal for yacht lovers.
In fact, there are about a dozen marinas on the Costa del Sol, from Vélez-Málaga to Cádiz. Their exclusive clubs offer boats for rent, used by visitors for private trips or sailing excursions in the calm waters of the Mediterranean Sea. Beginners can take lessons at the sailing schools introducing neophytes to this exciting world.
