Best ports to anchor in Marbella

As in all the best coastal areas, Marbella has ports so that anyone who wishes can moor their boat, either a daily service what you need or a rental mooring for longer seasons, there are different options to choose from:

Puerto Banús

See in Google Maps

The port of Marbella par excellence, not only by surface area, which is, if not by everything it has and represents, is the port of the Marbella jet set, quality restaurants, leisure area, good service… everything you can ask from a good port. The price of the mooring is the highest in Europe, positioned ahead of the port of Ibiza in 2019.


Puerto de Cabopino

How to get to Puerto Cabolpino

This port is not big but it has all the services that you can need, both restaurants and in leisure, we will have very well covered the service. The price of the mooring does not stop being high despite being more economical, this is Marbella.


Sportive Port Marina La Bajadilla

How to get to Puerto Deportivo Marina La Bajadilla

Relatively small port, shared by fishing boats and recreational boats, it is very well looked after and the service is very good, highly recommended if we are looking for something good, nice and well priced. The mooring has a tight price, cheaper than the two previous ones.


Sportive Port Virgen del Carmen

How to get to Puerto deportivo Virgen del Carmen

It is a small marina, great nautical activity, sports variety for the initiation of the youngest in marine life, a wide variety of restaurants, bars, entertainment venues… the favorite of the youngest, the tourist heart of Marbella. Price of the mooring below Puerto Banus, but it is a high price.


Best Local Restaurants in Marbella

When we leave the house for lunch or dinner we always break our heads looking for something that will really surprise us, something that can make us spend a special night, that place that we must visit every time we go on a trip, every time we celebrate something special or every time we feel like surprising someone. In Marbella we find that the problem is different, you have to think where to go, but not to get it right as there is a wide variety of restaurants that will leave you with your mouth open… now the problem becomes choosing which one is going to surprise me today, a problem that we can help you solve with a few recommendations:

This 3 Star Michellin restaurant show a surprising interior design with sea creatures and other marine elements.

First we find “BiBo”, a special restaurant of a special chef, Dani Garcia, with 3 Michelin stars is positioned at the top. Besides being a space that exudes magic in every corner, it is capable of reformulating traditional cuisine to make it contemporary without forgetting the quantities, something that has often been lost in contemporary kitchens. If you eat or dine at BiBo you will leave enchanted, surprised and not wanting to go home to eat something else. Located in one of the most exclusive hotel complexes in Marbella, Puente Romano, is undoubtedly the best option to delight our palate.

Secondly we will give importance to the situation because, apart from BiBo, there are very good restaurants but in the same step. In this second position would be “El Lago”, located in a more than special place as it is the shore of a lake (giving rise to its name) makes more than special to visit it at night because the lighting makes you think you’re going to dinner in a place taken from a story. In addition to a magnificent location, the cuisine is wonderful, really good tasting menus with the necessary amount, original and tasty dishes that will make us enjoy from the starter to dessert, a special attention, of those who are looking for when we leave home. It is the second option in Marbella without any doubt.

To talk about, Skina, I have to emphasize its reduced space, something that many people would put as a negative point but that, without a doubt, makes it much more special, only 14 tables that make the service a special point to stand out, it is spectacular, a tasting menu that makes you visit them again and a great variety of wines, which, for those who like them, is the best wine list of the province.

Closing this post we will talk about Messina, at Skina level, there are small nuances that make me talk about it in the last place within this podium of Marbella restaurants with Michelin star. Its cuisine is of a very high level, each dish an explosion of flavors, two menus, a short one (more than enough) and a long one (to finish delighting our palate), a pairing never saw before in any restaurant, very successful, and very high-level service.
