The nightlife in Puerto Banus is incredible, with a huge choice of alfresco bars, casinos, piano clubs and discos.
The paseo maritimo is a good place to stroll. There are more than 50 restaurants and plenty of shops, so you can spend so much time just walking along the beach promenade. It's just a beautiful place that is lined with palm trees. Walk the Golden Mile from Marbella to Puerto Banus. The walk is about 7.6km (4.8 miles) and should take less than 2 hours at a brisk pace, but with sightseeing it could take a lot more. Fortunately, you will pass our apartment about half way so you could drop in for a rest if you happen to be renting it that week.
