Why buy a property in Puerto Banús

Why Puerto Banús beach apartments are in such high demand

The marina at Puerto Banús dates back to 1966 when the architect Noldi Schleck managed to convince José Banús to build an Andalusian village with a port instead of simple residential buildings without much charm. Now, Puerto Banús has become one of the best-known locations on the Costa del Sol. Puerto Banús beach apartments are also some of the most sought-after properties and the marina is one of the most famous in the world!
