The New Golden Mile is the up-and-coming coastal area on the Costa del Sol. Situated between Marbella/Puerto Banús and Estepona, it enjoys the best of all worlds: close to golf courses, mountainous countryside and of course frontline beach with spectacular views that follow the shoreline westwards all the way to Gibraltar.
Nearby are the pleasures of the charming village of Benahavis, the bustle of the little town of San Pedro Alcántara, the glamour and nightlife of the marina of Puerto Banús, cosmopolitan Marbella town and also atmospheric Estepona—with a wide choice of golf courses, sports clubs, hiking and horse riding, and the chance to walk to your favourite beach club to while away the day by the sea.
First line beach living on the New Golden Mile
Among the New Golden Mile frontline beach apartments for sale, two of the finest developments in the area immediately stand out for their location, build quality, style and on-site amenities. Bahia del Velerin is a boutique development of luxury apartments and penthouses with a particularly attractive setting right on a peaceful stretch of sandy beach. The coastal pathway passes in front, forming a backdrop for the iconic outlines of Gibraltar and North Africa in the distance.
The properties are ranged around a beachside parkland of landscaped gardens, swimming pools, sundecks and water features, with spacious open-plan interiors leading on to large panoramic terraces with Jacuzzis. The lounge and dining areas are stylish and attractive, with modern kitchens, fireplaces and bathrooms that form part of private bedroom suites complete with their own terraces. One even has an enclosed fireplace for those cosy winter evenings.
The quality is in the detail, and it shows at Bahia del Velerin, where gated security, nature, space and privacy combine with a poolside chiringuito bar in properties that range from individual apartments to stunning duplex and triplex penthouses with the space and finishing of a villa.
Very different in nature are the apartments and duplex penthouses at Bahia de la Plata, close to the five-star deluxe Kempinski Resort Hotel near the eastern entrance to Estepona. Contemporary in style, this gated community with immaculate gardens and a series of swimming pools leads straight to a private section of beachside lawns for the use of residents. Bahia de la Plata also features a first-class gym, spa with heated indoor swimming pool, function rooms and a semi-indoor paddle tennis court – making this the ideal frontline beach spot for both holidays and year-round living.
The apartments are spacious, beautifully finished and have large terraces with stunning sea views – many of which come with their own splash pool!
