José Banús was a visionary. Such assertion, unthinkable during the sixties, became a categorical fact when the port was inaugurated in May 1970. At its social presentation attended King Don Juan Carlos and Queen Sofía when they were Princes of Asturias, accompanied, amongs others, by Prince Rainiero and Grace of Monaco.
As a developer, the idea of José Banús was the creation of a port that would become a keystone, a significant added value for tourist, social and economic development of Marbella. Banús did choose this enclave in a privileged coastline with a micro-climate that makes this land a unique and well-known place everywhere.
Year after year, PUERTO BANÚS has established itself as a key destination for nautical tourism, and it is a magnet for the main worldwide commercial firms and l luxury water sports.
Since its inauguration has also been a meeting point for all kind of people: Royal Houses around the world, rulers, artists, businessmen, sportsmen…
The list of famous names is almost endless: Don Juan de Borbón, Count of Barcelona, whose sculpture presides quay honour from the mouth of the port, King Fahd of Saudi Arabia, his brother Prince Salman, the Kings of Belgium, presidents of government and ministers from across Europe, the Nobel laureate writer Camilo José Cela, Julio Iglesias, Lola Flores, Antonio Banderas, Miguel Indurain, Ringo Star, Barbara Streissand, Prince, Mick Jagger, Elizabeth Taylor, Rod Stewart, Niki Lauda, Hugh Grant, Luis Miguel and Mariah Carey, ( who filmed a spectacular videoclip in its wharfs) and lots more.
Shelted by the Mediterranean sea and the excellent climate of Andalucía, large and famous luxury yachts such as Navila, Neeveen, Sea Cloude, Blue Cristal, Bravo, Shaft, América, Al Miriyah o Shahnaz, have reached port, and they continue doing it in one of the best harbours around the world, which won the Gold Medal of National Tourist Merit and the prestigious award ‘ Gold Mercury International` in Rome in its action for the development of economic, cultural and social cooperation.
