As we enter spring, thoughts on the Costa del Sol naturally shift towards the beach. Exercise regimes are stepped up in preparation for summer wear and plans made for the sunny season, when besides the sand, beach clubs, fish restaurants and water sports also beckon. Thanks to a long shoreline there are many beachside spots to choose from in Marbella, but here are our top 5, based on personal preference and many years of client feedback:
The Golden Mile
How could Marbella’s most exclusive seaside address do anything but feature at the top of the list? The very cream of its residential offering is made up by the frontline beach villas, mansions and luxury apartment complexes that enjoy stunning vistas of the sea and have direct access to beach and coastal path alike. The latter extends all the way to Marbella town in the east and Puerto Banús in the west, continuing on to San Pedro Alcántara.
Besides being home to the iconic Marbella Club and Puente Romano resort hotels, the coastal part of the Golden Mile is home to some of the finest property for sale in Marbella, an area where demand consistently outstrips supply.
For people who wish for a faster-paced seaside way of life, Puerto Banús offers large sandy beaches dotted with fish restaurants and trendy beach clubs, as well as the restaurants, cafés, boutiques, night spots and designer shopping outlets that radiate outwards from the famous marina, where super yachts lie moored in an iconic Marbella setting. Here, luxurious frontline beach apartment and penthouse complexes offer tranquillity and comfort within walking distance from all the action.
This newly emerging coastal area on the beach side of San Pedro Alcántara features a coastal promenade fronted by good restaurants and backed by green zones before you reach a collection of mostly modern luxury apartments. The homes in Nueva Alcántara are therefore often brand new, featuring the latest styles, technology and amenities, set in a popular location five minutes from Marbella, Puerto Banús and a series of golf courses.
Guadalmina Baja is a luxurious, mostly level residential area where large private villas and a smaller collection of quality apartments and townhouses overlook a broad park golf course that extends all the way to the beach, which it follows in classic fashion. It is a very peaceful zone and the property for sale in Guadalmina Baja offers this sense of privacy combined with low-rise exclusivity and close proximity to the entire Marbella area.
The most renowned address on the east side of Marbella, Los Monteros, is also known for having the finest, sandiest beaches, complete with dunes, pine groves and wonderful views back towards Marbella and across to Gibraltar. Sunsets here are something to behold, and the area has its share of excellent beach clubs, fish restaurants and surfer’s sports – not to mention beautiful Los Monteros beachside homes – some of the ultimate examples of Marbella’s most popular property type and setting.
