Nueva Andalucia is an upmarket community situated at the foot of the Sierra Blanca mountain range. It remains one of the most sought after residential areas of the Costa del Sol, located moments away from the world famous and iconic Puerto Banús; a luxury yachting marina boasting designer boutiques, 5 star restaurants and exciting nightspots.
Its origins are linked to Puerto Banús and the famous bullring. In this residential community you will find hotels, golf courses, spas, tennis courts, gyms and other sports services. There is also an array of schools, supermarkets, medical services, a variety of restaurants, bars and so much more; boasting one of the most established locations throughout the Costa del Sol. It is directly connected to the A7 leading to the airport, 7km from the centre of Marbella and 2km from San Pedro de Alcántara.
The entrance to the area is found up by the bullring behind the Puerto Banus Casino and the Andalucia Plaza Hotel. The bullring is an impressive structure and it is well worth a visit. On Saturdays, the bullring (Marbella Arena) is the location for a vast street market with stalls selling everything from ornaments and decorative items to clothes and electrical goods. From the bullring, the road carries up into the Commercial Central Plaza that consists of a series of shops, a supermarket, bars, a gym and several restaurants.
A combination of 5 golf courses are located in the Golf Valley: Los Naranjos Golf, and La Quinta to the West, Las Brisas in the centre, not forgetting Aloha Golf and La Dama de Noche where you can golf at night, a few minutes East of the valley. There is also a driving range at Los Naranjos de Marbella, making this location a golfers paradise.
The valley is a consolidated residential area where one can find villas of the highest quality in the most exclusive areas such as Las Brisas Golf, La Cerquilla, La Quinta Golf, Los Naranjos Golf and Aloha Golf. Mid-range villas, luxury apartments and penthouses are located in different areas in the middle of the valley, alongside a variety of apartments for holiday use in the lower part near the Marina, the bullring and shopping areas.
Located in the old bullring of Nueva Andalucía in Marbella, a unique 1965 building signed by the architect Luis María de Gana y Hoyos, stands the new Arena Marbella Auditorium. An arena for leisure and culture equipped with the most modern technical systems. The Arena Marbella Auditorium has a maximum capacity of 5,437 seats distributed. The seating capacity can be extended to 4,133 spectators for shows in the center of the arena, reaching 6,023 total spectators. This is a new space, both for the concept and for the technical equipment, one of the most modern and advanced in the entire Costa del Sol.
In 1990, Nueva Andalucia’s first shopping centre, Centro Plaza opened its doors to members of the public. It was one of the first establishments in Marbella to combine leisure and business by placing a variety of shops and offices in the same precinct; with a greater professional profile and more office space than mirroring centres throughout the Coast. After 28 years of successful operation, Centro Plaza is now one of the most established shopping centres of its kind in the province of Malaga. Centro Plaza was then and continues to be a natural balcony on Marbella´s Maritime bay, overseeing spectacular views of the valley. The view offers panoramic vision of the mountains surrounding Marbella, (including La Concha, one of the most popular vocal points of the area). It was deliberately built on raised land at the foot of the mountain, creating an ideal elevation to contemplate the area´s landscape. The open design of this project provides spacious paths and terraces and has succeeded in utilising, simultaneously respecting the natural beauty of its surroundings, giving the shopping centre a unique role as Nueva Andalucia’s prime, public viewpoint.
