If you consider the Costa del Sol to be little more than endless beaches, whitewashed resorts, expat havens and the occasional bar and restaurant, Elviria will do very much to shatter that stereotype being the area that can satisfy any wish list. Recognized as the Costa del Sol’s most consolidated residential area, Elviria not only ticks all boxes, it does so with a certain style.
Straddling both sides of the coastal road just a few kilometers east of Marbella down-town, Elviria’s location makes an excellent option for a second home or relocation close to shops, bars and amenities, and the lovely beaches of Cabopino (while also boasting its own splendid beaches too), much of the Spanish dream exists either within or very close to Elviria.
Just inland, the maze of perfectly manicured avenues and streets are home to a number of sumptuous villas and townhouses, in addition to the more affordable but quality apartment complexes contained by a very pleasant low density housing environment. This sprawling suburbia stretches right up to the famous La Mairena vicinity, which sits in the heart of lush countryside, surrounded by golf courses and emerald green hills.
Elviria has a pleasantly friendly and laid-back atmosphere, enhanced by the array of different nationalities that name the area home.
Down by the beach sits Marbella’s worldwide luxury beach club phenomenon, Nikki Beach represents everything cool, sexy and glamorous about spending the day or night at the beach. A Divine globally-inspired cuisine, the coolest crowd, the hottest parties, against a utopian backdrop of swaying palms and exotic bamboo beds, Nikki Beach is where Marbella's in-crowd can be found, bronzing themselves on exotic, oversized sun beds, sipping champagne cocktails on the VIP terrace, and dancing to the all-day grooves of Nikki Beach's world-class DJs and live musicians. This is the ultimate beach party experience actually located right here in Elviria, beside the equally famous and exclusive 5* Don Carlos Hotel. While neither are cheap, both hold some serious kudos. Nearby are a number of more affordable chiringuitos, chic eateries and traditional beach bars, all extremely welcoming.
So, if you are planning on relocating for good, Elviria will certainly be of interest: it's peaceful and extremely safe, centrally located on the Coast and easily accessible from Málaga airport.
