A luxurious destination with an international appeal, Marbella is a town with some iconic landmarks whose name, images and reputation have travelled around the world. These include the Golden Mile, with its iconic Marbella Club and Puente Romano hotels, the glamorous marina of Puerto Banús and the exclusive La Zagaleta country club – one of the finest of its kind in Europe.
But there is more, much more, and in this short article we highlight some of the other areas that are much sought-after by residents, home seekers and visitors to this region.
New Golden Mile
So named for its concentration of luxurious new beachside and golf developments, the New Golden Mile occupies the coastal strip between Estepona – of which it is a part – and Marbella’s San Pedro Alcántara. With its up-and-coming status among homebuyers and investors alike, this is a dynamic area with an ever-growing array of quality services and amenities, along with a long shoreline and fantastic sea and mountain views.
Known for its Golf Valley – where three of the best courses on the Costa del Sol are located – Nueva Andalucía is also a highly popular residential area marked by frontline golf villas and apartments lining peaceful, leafy streets. Sports clubs, schools, shopping, dining and entertainment, as well as close proximity to nature, beaches, Puerto Banús and Marbella make it an evergreen classic.
Situated just on the other (eastern) side of Marbella town, Río Real occupies a beautiful valley where luxurious villas, apartments and townhouses overlook the lush green carpet of the Río Real golf course, which runs all the way down to the nearby beach. The area enjoys peace and privacy yet is centrally located and close to all amenities, making it a popular option with people in the know.
A delightful residential area a little further east of Río Real, Cabopino’s beachside area is home to a charming little marina with shops, cafés and restaurants, as well as some of the finest beaches and dunes in the Costa del Sol. These also include the protected Artola dune and coastal umbrella pine reserve, while on the inland side stylish homes line the golf course amid amazing sea views.
Where Cabopino is small, quaint and has lots of local facilities on its doorstep, Calahonda – at the eastern extreme of Marbella – is lively and buzzing. There are lots of shops, cafés, restaurants and beach clubs here, as well as golf and nightlife in an area of the coastline marked by pretty little coves. Set midway between Marbella and Fuengirola, it offers a world of leisure options.
La Cala de Mijas
This pretty little seaside village forms the local hub of shops, eateries and beaches, with many of the stylish modern apartments and villas extending a little further inland, towards the exclusive La Cala Golf Resort, a mecca for golfers, lovers of nature, space, sea and mountain views, as well as first-class modern homes.
