Those familiar with Marbella will know San Pedro Alcántara as the lively, very Andalusian little town that falls within the Marbella municipal area and provides a local hub for residents of the luxurious residential areas surrounding it. But San Pedro and its immediate surroundings are also a fine lifestyle destination in their own right, with lovely suburbs and beautiful homes to choose from – all surrounded by golf, facing beaches and within minutes of Puerto Banús, Marbella town, Benahavis and Estepona. In fact, it’s a great location!

San Pedro beachside
A broad pedestrian boulevard and park area separates the compact little town from its beachside area, where luxurious modern villas and apartments are arising alongside a charming older suburb of bungalows and townhouses. This area, known as Nueva Alcántara, is marked by spacious roads and green spaces, and clearly orientated towards the sea, which is always in walking distance. The coastal promenade, with its restaurants and cafés, is a highly popular spot for strolling, beachside yoga and fitness routines, and just sitting and watching the sun set.

This area is home to a series of luxurious beachside apartments with stunning sea views. Most are set within lush gardens, offering modern style and amenities that include large communal swimming pools and in many cases also gated communities and spa facilities. Given such characteristics, these types of properties by the sea in Nueva Alcántara, San Pedro, are in hot demand, and with its great offer of modern apartments and villas, is very much an upcoming area.

Even more established as a luxury residential area is the exclusive villa suburb of Guadalmina, which straddles the beautiful parkland fairways of the local club’s two 18-hole golf courses – each located on either side of the coastal highway. The areas thus created are Guadalmina Alta, home to frontline golf villas and apartments, and Guadalmina Baja, a luxurious suburb of large private villas by the beach. Highly private yet situated right by San Pedro Alcántara, the properties for sale in Guadalmina rank among the finest in Marbella, marking this as one of its most desirable residential zones.
