Do you love the sea, are you passionate about nautical activities? In the heart of Marbella there is an ideal place for you: Marbella Marina. Read on, we’ll tell you more about its services, activities and amenities, which can be enjoyed by young and old alike.
Puerto Virgen del Carmen, better known as Marbella Marina, is located in an ideal and lively place, such as the city centre. And it has a wide range of nautical activities for both children and adults, such as competitions, regattas, sailing lessons or diving school. It also has 377 moorings for sailing enthusiasts.
It was inaugurated in 1957 and was originally used for anchoring sports boats. Little by little, numerous works have been carried out, until in 2002 and 2003 the facilities that you can find today were completed.
What you can find
It is divided into two areas: on the upper part are the port terraces, where you can enjoy the events and shows on the agenda; and on the lower part are the premises, the nautical facilities and the Club.
It does not lack any type of services, as you can find toilets, showers, WiFi, parking, shopping area, restaurants and leisure facilities, security and cash machines. And if that wasn’t enough, this port has been awarded one of the Blue Flags granted to Malaga ports in 2021, a sign of its quality.
Furthermore, it is one of the best areas to experience the atmosphere of the city, as it is very popular with tourists and locals alike. A very pleasant place for its restaurants, bars, discos and terraces overlooking the sea. During the nights of the weekends it becomes the main party area of the city.
After enjoying the sea and its activity, you can relax in one of the numerous Beach Clubs on the beaches of the area. In our post Top 5 Beach Clubs Marbella we recommend you the best ones where you can enjoy good atmosphere, gastronomy, leisure and music, and several of them are located in the area we are talking about today.
In addition, in the surrounding area you will find different points of tourist interest such as the Paseo Marítimo (new Coastal Path) where you can stroll by the sea, the Alameda Park or the Old Town.
