Nueva Andalucia is a really popular area for expats looking for a well connected community close to everything, but with peace and quiet and excellent sports facilities. It is located just off the N340 motorway up the hill from Puerto Banus, a 10 minute drive from central Marbella.
The nightlife is good as Nueva Andalucia itself has a good selection of bars and restaurants and you’re just a short taxi ride from everything that Puerto Banus has to offer. La Sala on the roundabout at the beginning of Nueva Andalucia offers breakfast, lunch, dinner and a great party atmosphere and it has a night club for partying into the early hours.
Venturing further up the hill you will find Centro Plaza which has some laid back cafes, bars and restaurants, a supermarket, bank, hairdressers and a few shops and local businesses. I also noticed a great looking French bakery which looked tempting.
Further up still (following the signs to the golf courses) there are more shops, a big Mercadona supermarket and then a parade of bars and restaurants in what’s known as Aloha Gardens. One of the latest restaurants to open there is an Asian Fusion restaurant called Tuk Tuk which serves a great range of Japanese, Thai and Chinese inspired dishes and snacks and you can even just pop by for a few drinks and maybe some sushi. There’s also a very popular Indian restaurant in this same block called Bollywood which comes highly recommended.
Continuing further up still into golf valley and nearly at Aloha Golf course is the pretty little urbanisation of Aloha Gardens. A new restaurant, bar and café has just opened there called El Banco (as it’s in the site of the old bank) which is open all day for breakfast, lunch, dinner, drinks, snacks, coffees and cakes. It serves a wide range of International food which is really interesting, original and delicious. It’s a great addition to the area for those people who live further up into Nueva Andalucia as they needed a relaxed hangout. It only opened a few weeks ago but it is already proving a real hit.
This then becomes a total golfer’s paradise with the courses of Aloha, La Quinta, Los Naranjos, Los Arqueros and Magna Marbella – all within easy reach. Take a look at all the Nueva Andalucia golf courses on My Destination Marbella to check out all the details. All these courses so close together gives the area a peace and tranquillity with beautiful views, but within easy reach of everything you need – this combination makes it very popular for long term rentals.
