Playa Puerto Banus

This beach is located between the Puerto Banus Marina complex and Playa Rio Verde, just to the east of the main town. It is also known as Playa de Levante.

Playa Puerto Banús is just over 1km long with a width of 50m and boasts fine sand and a protected cove due to the construction of a breakwater. The water is calm and shallow with a warm temperature, making it very popular with families with young children. 


A paseo maritimo 'Paseo Alberto Vidiella Tudores' starts follows the entire length of the beach. It has several play areas for children and in the summer a craft market. You can then cross the Rio Verde on the wooden footbridge and continue your seafront walk all the way to Marbella, 6km away.

The beach is well equipped with showers, public toilets and plenty of sun loungers and parasols for hire, with lifeguards on duty throughout the summer. There are also several chiringuitos the best known is the upmarket La Pesquera beach restaurant. 

Playa Rio Verde is over the river to the east
