Unmissables in Marbella

Puerto Banús has come a long way from the traditional Spanish fishing village that it was a few decades ago.

Every Saturday the Puerto Banús Street Market takes place by the bullring, in the Nueva Andalucía quarter a mile from the marina. From 9am to 3pm it runs from Avenida José Banús (by Playas del Duque) all the way up to the shopping centre Centro Plaza. It is a very popular street market where you can find every type of goods for sale, including shoes, bags, crafts, flowers, fruit, paintings, clothes and antiques. There are there two other weekly street markets, one on Mondays in central Marbella and another on Thursdays in San Pedro.

Spacious and easily accessible, it offers music evenings with famous opera singers and classical music, and it is a hub for social and cultural life in Marbella. On the art front, the gallery presents contemporary paintings and sculpture.

Restaurant Piucaro

There are many restaurants in Puerto Banús, but few come more highly recommended than Piucaro. Sitting on the seafront at the entry point to the marina, the restaurant offers beautiful sea views as well as a great service and a rich menu. Naturally, the seafood here is excellent, particularly the red tuna steak, but there are plenty of other options for lovers of Mediterranean cuisine.
