For something a little different head to Puerto Banus, which is located in the Nueva Andalusia suburb of Marbella.  Although initially it may appear as a developed old Spanish fishing village with an impressive mountain backdrop, Puerto Banus was in fact built and designed in 1970 by local property developer Jose Banus as a Luxury marina and shopping complex. Puerto Banus is known as Costa del Sol’s playground for the wealthy and rich that come here for the shopping, beaches and buzzing nightlife. There are ample expensive shops for you to spend your money in and during summer months you may even spot a celebrity or two.
