The area is ideal for those who wish to be based close to the beaches, nightlife and amenities of the area, and it is also an excellent base to explore the whole of the Costa del Sol.
Nueva Andalucia is more a residential area, than a town, but it has all the facilities and amenities of a town, without the major hustle and bustle, traffic and noise.
The area centres around the bullring and spreads out, heading down towards the port and up to a golf valley, eventually climbing up towards the backdrop of the Sierra de Ronda mountain range.
Shops, supermarkets, bars, restaurants, hairdressers, gymnasiums, casinos, gift shops; you name it, Nueva Andalucia has it. As well as the wonderful Saturday morning market that starts in the Centro Plaza and sprawls down into Puerto Banus itself.
