Marbella is one of the most glamorous and stylish places in Spain, but within the city itself is an even more distinctive area that’s known for its character and the type of visitors it receives. We’re obviously talking about Puerto Banús, an area renowned for luxury and exclusivity where you’ll find top brands and luxury services. But, aside from its shopping area and the unique marina, you can discover different restaurants, including BlueBay Gourmet, which is strongly represented with its selection of bars, restaurants and terraces. Taste buds alert!
