Malaga Water Sports

The warm water of the Mediterranean Sea seduces all type of people for many years to get into the deep water. This was the case of the Phoenicians who were driven into this land by the sea before any other civilization. The man of the 21th century is living a similar experience because they do not need a transatlantic trip in order to enjoy the sea breeze at the same time that they handle the rudder of a boat. This is why Malaga is nowadays a necessary destination for navigation lovers. Indeed, the province counts with fantastic specialized areas to enjoy the navigation.
The most important ones are Benalmadena marina, called Puerto Marina, and Marbella marina called Puerto Banús.


The first one, Puerto Marina, is a complex formed by several artificial islands.

This harbour has been recognized with the “Best Marina in the World”, a prize given by international specialized magazines. It is also posses the European Blue Flag since 1987 due to the quality of its water and services.
