About Nagüeles beach

Playa Nagueles MarbellaNagüeles beach is 800m long and approximately 40m wide.

The beach runs the breath of the newly constructed 'Paseo Maritimo' and starts next to the Puente Romano Hotel and runs until the Marbella beach club / Playa de Casablanca / Playa Trocadero area. 

As with so many beaches in the area, where one starts and one finishes is very hard to determine, they tend to be a continuation of one another. 

The sand is fine and golden.

Playa Nagueles is cleaned daily, both by machine and by hand. The beach area is exceptionally clean. 

There are lifeguards on duty year round and the beach is child friendly with gentle sloping water.  

The surrounding area offers all amentities, from luxury yacht rentals to parasols. Things are expensive in this area. There are, however, numerous kiosks along the Paseo maritimo that offer a cheaper alternative for snacks and water. 

One popular activity is cycling, many of the bar/restaurants rent out bikes. 

The exclusive Trocadero Playa restaurant is situated right on Nagueles beach. One of Marbella's best and specialising in local, Andalusian cuisine, the food is quite simply exquisite. With starters and salads around the 15€ price mark, special rice dishes from 18€ and upwards, meat around 20€ a dish (off the day menu) - its not cheap by anyone's standards.
