Views are always an important consideration when people buy a property, but in a beautiful resort area such as Marbella they become an even more integral part of the factors shaping one’s choice of home. In this article we highlight some of the most scenic residential areas in Marbella.

Panoramic sea views

You need some elevation to enjoy panoramic views of the coastline and the sea. The best locations – such as Sierra Blanca, La Zagaleta and Magna Marbella – offer truly panoramic vistas of the entire sweep of coastline towards Gibraltar and North Africa, as well as gorgeous mountain scenery.

Although it is situated just a few minutes from the beaches and shops of downtown Marbella and Puerto Banús, the location of the luxury gated community of Sierra Blanca at the base of Marbella’s iconic La Concha Mountain ensures a fantastic perspective of the town and coastal region. This also applies to the villas in Cascada de Camojan and Nagüeles, neighbouring residential areas that also form part of the inland extension of the famous Golden Mile.

The exclusive gated country club estate of La Zagaleta is set in the foothills of the Serranía de Ronda mountains, and while just a short distance from the coast and its amenities this setting provides fantastic views of the surroundings countryside, mountain scenery and shoreline. On clear days it is possible to see across the Mediterranean Sea to North Africa from a luxurious La Zagaleta villa, while neighbouring El Madroñal looks back across Marbella to the east.

Frontline golf views in Marbella

Set on a gentle ridge close to Nueva Andalucía, the luxury apartments at Magna Marbella enjoy closer up views of the sea, also taking in San Pedro Alcántara and the nearby mountains. Nueva Andalucía’s famous Golf Valley extends on the east side of this ridge, providing a wide choice of apartments and frontline golf villas with fantastic vistas across the fairways of Los Naranjos, Las Brisas and Aloha.

Nueva Andalucía is the golf mecca in the area, but those who enjoy expansive green views from their home can also choose from a frontline golf villa in La Quinta or an apartment overlooking the Guadalmina golf course. You don’t even have to be a golfer to appreciate the sheer peace, space and green beauty of such a living environment.

Beachside views in Marbella

For some, though, there is nothing like a first row beachside view across the sea, such as the ones to be enjoyed from the frontline beach penthouses in Puerto Banús or along the New Golden Mile, while the prime properties in Marbella tend to be beachfront villas in Los Monteros or the Golden Mile – still the ultimate setting in a sector dominated by location, location, location.
