Puerto Banus marina in Marbella attracts thousands of tourists every year. Lots of people come to sample the designer shops, eat in restaurants and cafes on the front, or simply people watch as the rich and famous pull into the harbour on their super yachts or park their Ferraris. Lots of other people come to Puerto Banus to sample the bars and clubs that line this famous millionaire’s playground. Here is our guide to the best bars around the marina.
If you are holidaying with children then the likelihood of being able to spend a week simply relaxing by the pool is very small! Kids need to be entertained and whilst your private pool can provide enough fun for most of the time a few days out will also be necessary no doubt. Tivoli World in Benalmadena is one of the largest theme parks on the Costa del Sol and it provides lots to do whatever your age.
Marbella on Spain’s Costa del Sol has gained quite a reputation for being a party resort. Not a week goes by in summer time when one celebrity or another is pictured partying at one of the many exclusive beach clubs or falling out of nightclubs in the resort. However, there is a different side to this popular holiday destination; the Old Town of Marbella is truly charming and still retains lots of the traditional charm of a typical Spanish village.
The ‘Parque Aquatico Mijas’ is a large waterpark located in a handy spot just off the N340 outside the centre of Fuengirola. It’s easily reachable within 20 minutes’ drive if you are staying in any of the resort along the coast, from Benalmadena to Marbella. The park opens annually from early may to late September and prices start at 17 Euros for children up to 23 Euros for an adult. In my opinion this is good value for a full day of waterslides, whirlpools and rapids!
Calahonda, like many tourists destinations on the Costa del Sol has a wide variety of global cuisines on offer to suit every taste and every budget. Whether you prefer traditional Spanish cuisine, or have a penchant for Thai, African, Mexican, Asian, Italian, Greek, Indian or English food, you’re bound to find something to whet your appetite. Of course if you prefer to graze rather than have a formal meal, then Calahonda has a selection of tapas bars and cafes that you might enjoy. Here is a selection of just a few of the restaurants, tapas bars and cafes in Calahonda that you might enjoy.
