8km (5 miles) E of Marbella, 782km (486 miles) S of Madrid

A favorite resort for international celebrities, the coastal village of Puerto BanĂºs was created in the traditional Mediterranean style almost overnight just for tourists. It's a dreamy place, the very image of what a Costa del Sol fishing village should look like but rarely does. Yachts can be moored nearly at your doorstep. Along the harborfront you'll find an array of expensive bars and restaurants. Wandering through the quiet back streets, you'll pass archways and patios with grilles. For accommodations, you can stay at one of the resorts at Marbella .

To reach the town, you can take one of 15 buses that run daily from Marbella or drive east from Marbella along the E-15.
