Best Marina Locations across the Costa del Sol

Pia's Preferred Selection....

Thanks to a beautiful Mediterranean climate and an average of 320 days of sunshine per year, the Costa del Sol attracts worldwide sailors and boating enthusiasts. Obviously that means that the 11 marinas are stunning, each unique in its own way.

Choosing the top 3 of the Costa del Sol’s marina locations isn’t easy, but here we share our personal favourites…

Puerto Banús

Of course this 915 berth marina is a renowned tourist destination and therefore the most obvious choice – It enjoys an average of 5 million visitors per year! The surrounding shopping area includes top brand names, the bars are “A” list celebrity hangouts and the restaurants serve a fine fusion of international delicacies. Its most famous long-term resident is the superyacht “Shaf”, owned by Prince Salman Bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud, currently the defence minister for Saudi Arabia.

The exclusivity of Puerto Banús marina is matched with hefty pricetags on surrounding properties. It is extremely difficult to find anything for under €500,000. But your investment is rewarded with year-round occupancy – rentals were barely affected during the recession that hit other areas of Spain so badly.

For those looking to enjoy the many benefits of Puerto Banús, we recommend Mimosas Puerto Banús 

This amazing development is perhaps one of the last new build developments to ever become available so close to the marina. It is located just 200 metres from the seafront, not to mention all of the hustle and bustle of Banús’ unique lifestyle.


Cabopino is a small harbour but it has an innate sense of exclusivity that is now highly sought-after by Costa del Sol tourists and homeowners. This is also one of the most stunning stretches of golden sands with a nice selection of bars and restaurants.

For those looking to make the most of Puerto Cabopino, we recommend Reserva Marbella.

These stunning new apartments are priced from just €129,000 – a fraction of the cost of Puerto Banús. The resort has 2 outdoor swimming pools and one indoor pool, gym, bar, restaurant, game room, 24h reception, jacuzzi, sauna and so much more!

La Duquesa

The charming Puerto La Duquesa is situated to of the most westerly points of the Costa del Sol. Therefore, it offers a particular draw to those who work or frequently travel via Gibraltar. It includes moorings for boats of up to 20m and has a good variety of bars and restaurants.

Property prices on this side of the Costa del Sol tend to be a lot more affordable. We recommend Duquesa Residencial which is located within just a few minutes walk of the marina and provides good quality 2 bedroom apartments from 98,000€.

Marina locations are not only highly sought-after by Costa del Sol property buyers but always provide good year-round rental income.
