Apartment in Marbella Golden Mile

The Golden Mile

Marbella’s prestigious Golden Mile, palm trees sway in the warm breeze of its perfect Mediterranean climate, and luxury properties stretch from the coast to the foothills of the Sierra Blanca mountain range. The exclusive Puente Romano resort, and beach establishments like the Marbella Club, join upmarket restaurants to attract an international set, making it the most sought-after address in town, and therefore a great investment opportunity.

Puerto Banús

At one end of the Golden Mile sits Puerto Banús, for many years the must-see destination of the rich and famous, with its favored mooring spots for luxury yachts, and its exclusive beach clubs. The designer shops, top restaurants and private clubs, stunning residences and excellent sporting facilities, make it a popular location for the discerning visitor, and a magnet for investors in quality real estate.

Nueva Andalucía

Traditionally-styled villas and luxurious apartments fill the resort of Nueva Andalucía. Otherwise known as Golf Valley, due to its three championship-standard courses, it rewards golfers and other visitors with tremendous outlooks over country and coast. Popular with nature-lovers, it possesses extensive facilities of its own, with its closeness to the marina and Marbella’s lively centre contributing to its appeal for investors.

Los Monteros

Some of the luxury villas in the beach resort of Los Monteros, the best on Marbella’s eastern side, boast their own private areas of sand and sea, with an added advantage being the proximity of the five-star Los Monteros hotel and the prestigious La Cabâne beach club. Others stand on peaceful side streets, while pretty gardens surround low-rise apartments. Residents can access all the amenities required for a privileged life style, including the nearby Rio Real golf club, as well as essentials such as colleges and a hospital.

La Zagaleta

The setting of La Zagaleta at Benahavís, among forests and mountain streams, is a paradise for naturalists, but it also provides stunning panoramas towards the blue Mediterranean and the green golf course. Once a hunting estate, now investors hunt for the ultimate in glamourous homes in spacious grounds, and this is where Engel & Völkers come in, with local knowledge and experience. Other sports on offer include horse-riding, polo and cycling, while the delights of the coast and the old town are within easy reach.


Both sites of Guadalmina – the southern side or Baja on the beachside, and the northern or Alta part closer to the mountains – offer dwellings of diverse styles and ages, with the older ones ripe for renovation by new owners. This peaceful subarea near San Pedro Alcántara has all the facilities that residents could need, including a championship-hosting golf club that opened in 1959!

If you’re looking for the best location for investment in real estate, within and around Marbella, Engel & Völkers Marbella can give you expert advice on location, investment opportunities, properties as well as new developments in the area.
