This area has grown into a well-established attractive residential area where many of the villas and apartments are based on traditional Andalucían architecture and is one that has become popular with foreign residents, especially the British and Scandinavian communities.

For those looking for fine dining options, you’ll love Breathe, Vovem, Divot Gastro Grill and Nomad, to name but a few.

Nueva Andalucía’s History

Nueva Andalucía got its name from one of the expansive agricultural estates that sprawled between the fishing hamlet of Marbella and the small farming village of San Pedro de Alcántara. Established by a Castilian aristocrat in the 19th century, it retains vestiges of its agricultural past amidst its modern urban development.

Like nearby Puerto Banús, Nueva Andalucía was designed by Jose Banús, who came to Marbella in the early 1960s to acquire the land. Puerto Banús was officially opened in 1968, with Nueva Andalucía reaching completion shortly after. The area has been developed significantly since its inauguration and features an extensive range of properties today.
