Nueva Andalucia is a newly built area immediately north from Puerto Banus, consisting of luxurious villas and apartments set amidst splendid gardens and trees, that has become a highly sought-after spot for house buyers.
This former small fishing village was completely renovated in 1963 by the famous project developer José Banús and it was later renamed Nueva Andalucía. The project was intended as a residential area for citizens who were not as wealthy as the sultans, kings and celebrities who had already settled in the Milla de Oro (Golden Mile).
Above all Nueva Andalucía is mainly known as the Golf Valley, as you will find 4 golf courses in the area, which makes this area the highest concentration of golf courses per inhabitant. The area is perfect for golfers because of the four top golf courses that are in the close proximity including Las Brisas, Los Naranjos, Aloha Golf and La Dama de Noche. Nueva Andalucia has a perfect balance, set far enough back from the bustle of Puerto Banus to feel peaceful amidst the Sierra de Ronda mountain range and close enough to walk into the port as and when necessary.
Nueva Andalucia is a vibrant area and it offers a wide range of restaurants, terraces and cafes. A few of the finest and most luxurious hotspots of the Costa del Sol are situated in Nueva Andalucia. We highlighted a few for you, so you know where to go when in Nueva Andalucia.
One of the finest Marbella hotspots is right around the corner: BREATHE Marbella. Let our private concierge make a reservation for you and be sure to check out this exclusive hotspot.
BREATHE is so much more than a restaurant or bar alone, this multifaceted gastronomic concept offers a place in Marbella where you can relax, dine, meet, socialise, enjoy a cocktail and be inspired by quality food made with care. This extraordinary place is fairly new to the scene in Nueva Andalucia, but it already has made a lasting impact and has seriously raised the bar for fine, sustainable dining.
La Sala in Puerto Banús (Nueva Andalucia) is the only restaurant & bar in Marbella area that offers live music from renowned musicians, singers and DJs seven days a week. On Sundays, La Sala offers live music all day long.

Situated on the shore of the most popular beach in Puerto Banus, La Sala by the Sea offers the ultimate beach club experience with pool and beach beds designed in a Thai inspired theme.

One of the best-kept secrets of the Costa del Sol is OAK Garden & Grill, situated in a garden of an Andalusian style villa. Of course, OAK is located in a prime location, actually right next to La Sala. The tables are situated around a big oak tree, hence the name, and the restaurants give you the feeling of being in an intimate secret garden. OAK is part of the La Sala family and the menu created by La Sal’s Executive Chef James Adams is of a very high standard, with both delicious grill specialities as well as a selection of La Sala’s famous signature dishes.
The OAK restaurant is charming and has a high degree of elegance, so do not forget to check out this lovely unique restaurant when in Nueva Andalucia.
Are you feeling lucky? Be sure to check out the only casino in Marbella, which is situated in Nueva Andalucia. They organise weekly poker tournaments, as well as bigger events every once in a while. They open daily at 12 PM and do not close until 5 AM, so there is always a good time to go out and win some money. Or lose some. Does it matter? No, it is all about the game and the thrill!
We can not really call this a beach club since it is not situated next to the beach at all, but this is definitely a place worth visiting. It is part of the Olivia Valere family, which is the hottest nightclub in Puerto Banus. And since a couple of years they opened the Nao Pool Club, which is a beach club, but then situated by nature and not at the beach at all, a pool club.
It has a definite beach-club vibe, so you could say this is the perfect place for beach club lovers who don’t like the sand! Since it is in the residential area of Nueva Andalucia it offers a peaceful, yet stylish space surrounded by green. It has the feeling of an island hideaway with cool music. The restaurant is highly praised for its great food and it is considered very good value for money compared to some of the more established beach clubs.
