One of the most exclusive districts within Marbella, Nagueles offers well-maintained peaceful complexes within easy reach of Marbella centre and appeals to holidaymakers and residents alike.

Where is Nagueles?

The neighbourhood known as Nagueles is located to the west of Marbella city centre and divided into two separate areas. The one located near the beach is known as Nagueles Bajo while the other, situated to the north of the A7 highway, is called Nagueles Alto. Both are within a short drive of Marbella city centre and the journey to Malaga Airport takes around half an hour.

Why buy in Nagueles?

Nagueles Bajo : The main attraction here is the beachside location meaning all properties lie within a few minutes’ walk of the sands. These beaches tend to be quieter than those in the city centre and to the east, but still offer a good choice of beach bars and restaurants including one of the most popular, El Trocadero. Nagueles Bajo is on the edge of The Golden Mile so you can make the most of the luxury facilities found here. Nagueles Bajo has excellent amenities, again all within a short walk, including several supermarkets such as Supersol, Lidl and El Corte Inglés, a wide range of restaurants and bars, banks and other services. Those in Marbella centre are within easy walking distance or if you prefer, just a 5-minute drive away.

Nagueles Alto : Slightly further away from Marbella centre but still only a 10-minute drive, Nagueles Alto is a collection of residential complexes, some dedicated solely to apartments and others gated villa developments. Nagueles Alto is located to the north of the A7 highway and sits beneath the Sierra Blanca mountain range, which provides a stunning backdrop to many properties in this area. Situated above the rest of the coast, Nagueles Alto also offers excellent seaviews and a tranquility not so easily found in Marbella itself. Some of the most luxurious property in Marbella is found here, particularly in places like Sierra Blanca and Camoján where villas match those found on The Golden Mile in terms of size and finishes.

Amenities are concentrated in the area between the bus station and the Don Miguel Hotel (currently under refurbishment), although there’s a better choice in Marbella itself.

What can I buy in Nagueles?

A choice of apartments, townhouses and villas are available in both areas of Nagueles. Many apartment complexes offer high-quality homes with excellent communal facilities that include large gardens with pools and tennis courts. Nagueles Bajo has beach properties, many of which command high rentals during the summer season and offer excellent buy-to-let potential as well as pleasant holiday homes. There isn’t a great deal of building land available in Marbella, but in terms of new builds, Nagueles probably has the best choice, particularly of luxury villas. Another alternative is to buy a plot with an older property on it and rebuild a home to your specifications.
