Resort Summary

There are three beaches in Puerto Banus – Playa Nueva Andalusia, Playa Puerto Banus and Playa del Rio Verde.

Playa Neuva Andalusia is the name given to a number of manmade interconnected beaches lying just to the west of Puerto Banus. The main section of the beach is called Los Espigones after the breakwaters designed to form pleasant coves. This beach attracts glamour at times and there are one or two beach bars and clubs with excellent reputations.

Playa Puerto Banus is a family-friendly beach with fine sand and a protected cove created by a breakwater. The water is warm, calm and shallow, making it a popular spot for groups with young children.

Playa Rio Verde is just to the east of Puerto Banus next to the Rio Verde itself. This European Blue Flag beach is accessed by crossing a river over a stylish footbridge, from which you can watch wader birds in the reeds. Playa Rio Verde is a quiet beach but it still has excellent facilities and is home to a number of beach bars and clubs.
