Marbella Port expansion
The welcoming and charming port of Marbella persits with the positive development programme that has seen the seaside resort bring in more visitors, trade and aquatic-related business to the town.
Puerto Deportivo Virgen del Carmen, as it is formally known, has undergone some small but effective renovation work over the past eighteen months. This has included a general facelift to communal areas and a pedestrianised square that has enticed new bars and cafés to open; and provides an easy scenic route from the port to the town.
As local residents will insist, Marbella’s port is not Puerto Banús and visitors expecting to ogle a billionaire superyacht lifestyle when they get there will be disappointed.
Instead you will experience a pretty harbour with traditional architecture, a special ambience and a more down to earth nautical community.
The contract for works to extend the quay has now gone out to tender, a new phase that is sure to be met with great anticipation, as it will allow shuttle boats and crafts of more than thirty metres to dock there.
Looking ahead another element of the port’s gentrification is the proposed boulevard connection to the promenade that will link the marina to Marbella’s delightful Paseo Marítimo seafront.
Since the recent redevelopment of Marbella’s central sports marina the region is attracting ever more visitors, berths are at full occupancy and water leisure related businesses have reported an increase in turnover of up to 30 percent.
With its historic old town, cosmopolitan centre, engaging marina and gorgeous beachfront, Marbella has so much to offer, not only as a coastal resort but as an ideal place to live.
