The celebrated Marbella Golden Mile is situated between the famous El Pirulí monument and Puerto Banús. It extends right down to the coast and up towards the mountains. All the quintessential places in Marbella can be found there, and the most sought-after areas, as far as commercial and residential properties are actually concerned.
In the early 1980s, German singer and developer of the Alhambra del Mar urbanization, Roy Boston, coined the expression “Golden Mile.” It is still used today to refer to the stretch between Marbella and Puerto Banús and is actually associated with exclusivity and luxury.
The Golden Mile is actually home to the legendary five-star hotels Marbella Club and Puente Romano, the former residence of the late King Fahd of Saudi Arabia, prestigious restaurants and beach clubs, nightclubs, and even an entire world of glamour and leisure.
The infrastructure, it goes without saying, is actually the first rate, with countless road connections and a promenade that spans the whole coastline.
The Golden Mile has 2 defined sections: the beachside well as the mountainside.
The beachside is actually a fully developed area, with apartment complexes, luxury villas, and townhouse estates, including urbanizations as Alhambra del Mar, with its signature Mediterranean style. Las Cañas Beach offers quality flats on the promenade. Las Torres de Marbella Club has luxury villas with private access. El Ancón is actually a complex of small, charming villas on the beachfront.
Oasis, built in the 1970s in a typical style, is actually on the beachfront. Playa Esmeralda is actually home to luxury apartments and penthouses, a stone’s throw from the beach and at the center of the Golden Mile.
The mountainside prolongs the development that started years back and is also home to luxury villas, apartment complexes, and townhouse estates. Throughout this particular area, you will find urbanizations as Monte Paraiso, with the sophisticated style of its, and the great luxury villas of Sierra Blanca. Costa Nagüeles, Los Pinos de Nagüeles and Cortijo Nagüeles are actually all located at the center of the Golden Mile and very near the city centre. Las Lomas de Magna Marbella offers wonderful luxury villas in a gated complex with surveillance.
La Virginia village has a restaurant, La Tienda, and most of the charm of an Andalusian pueblo. Meisho Hills was among the first modern complexes on the Golden Mile. Imara, with its bright and spacious apartments, offers stunning views. And, of course, we must not forget new developments, like La Meridiana Suites, Corona, and Epic de Nagüeles.
The Marbella Golden Mile is actually among the most sought-after areas on the Costa del Sol. It begins at the western edge of Marbella, at the copper tower, and stretches for around five kilometers to the Rio Verde river and the start of Puerto Banus. It was dubbed the Golden Mile in the 1980s when the area grew in popularity, and also the properties there became so desirable they were “golden.”
Why is the Golden Mile such a popular area?
Our buyers like the comfort of having the ability to reach both Marbella and Puerto Banus by foot easily or perhaps by automobile while maintaining a far more tranquil feel and easier parking. The beaches are actually lovely and less crowded than the central Banus or Marbella beaches, so you have a lot of space to stretch out, even in the peak summer months of August and July. The coastal road which connects Marbella and Puerto Banus have what you have to live here all year round, or perhaps enjoy an amazing holiday. You will find supermarkets, petrol stations, banks, chemists, schools, a business center and shops that are great, all within walking distance of the front door of yours in case you purchase a property on the Golden Mile. Easy access and this convenience to the beach and town are actually difficult to beat.
What properties can you find on the Golden Mile?
The Golden Mile has a great range of properties for sale, from apartments and townhouses to luxury villas. The villas on the Golden Mile are actually a great option, as they are likely to be very private, with great pools and gardens, but still within easy reach of all of the action. These villas range in style, price, and size, and we have a good selection to suit your needs.
A fantastic example is actually villa La Carolina, an amazing seven-bedroom villa on a plot of nearly 3,500m2. This’s a hidden gem tucked away in the center of the Golden Mile. The views, luxurious living space, location, and privacy should be seen to be believed.
