Given the all-important consideration of location, people the world over begin their serious property search by defining their preferred setting. In many places this is related to proximity to work, schools and other practical considerations, but in a lifestyle destination such as Marbella the search for a new home centres upon the views, amenities and joy it can offer.
For this reason, the ultimate Marbella property location has long since been a beachfront setting, and it is unlikely that this will change anytime soon. More specifically, people looking to buy a property in Marbella desire more than anything to have a frontline beach location with direct access to the Mediterranean and stunning views over it.
If you can choose, there is an elite selection of beachfront settings in Marbella that top most wish lists:
