Buddha Beach Banus Local favored beach club with brash Buddha theme
hours11am-2am, daily (Apr.-Oct.)
Wedged along the marina of Puerto Banus, Buddha Beach was one of the first ultra-exclusive beach clubs to find a home in Malaga. Nestled along a sandy inlet divided between a pool-based lounge and restaurant with on-the-sand beach service, this wildly popular summer lounge offers a beach club and nightlife scene beloved by Spain's TV star and footballer set. Not one to neglect its restaurant, a pretty decent menu of seafood and Japanese sushi menu is served in an indoor outdoor space of rattan lounger and crisp white cabanas cast with native palm trees.
Overlooking the Mediterranean, two bars offer a choice of indoor or outdoor drinking scene with the latter being the most popular in late summer afternoons and night when DJs and live bands bring more of a nightclub vibe. The on-site spa offers a boutique menu of services in zen-theme treatment rooms that could use a bit of sprucing-up. A separate VIP experience with upgraded beds and private Jacuzzis includes butler and champagne service in between personal modeling shows from the on-site boutique.
Bring your best beach bod. The club is notoriously popular with players from Tottenham Hotspur, Blackburn FC and Seville CF who aren't shy about showing-off.
