Marbella’s desirable beachside homes
The beautiful sandy beaches of Marbella were one of the main attractions that helped turn the one-time fishing village into a glamorous resort—and they remain central to its appeal.
Properties verging the Mediterranean shore rank among the most popular and resultantly held their value well during the financial downturn. With almost 30 kilometres of coastline and many golden beaches, people seeking a seafront home in Marbella are spoilt for choice from a selection of exclusive urbanisations providing different lifestyle options to buyers.
For those seeking the cachet and sophisticated way of life that Marbella is so famous for, the Golden Mile remains the premier frontline beach location. The glamorous resort complexes of the Puente Romano and Marbella Club Hotels don’t just provide five-star facilities but also are the highly exclusive setting for luxurious villas and apartments within their environs. Equally sought after are homes in neighbouring complexes that embody the style of the Golden Mile including Alhambra del Mar, Coral Beach, Costa Nagüeles II, El Capricho, El Infantado, Oasis Club, El Vicario, Las Mariposas, Marbella Real, Marina de Puente Romano, Rio Verde and Casablanca.
They share the same outstanding sea views across to Gibraltar and Africa, easy access to Marbella’s stylish promenade and proximity to the designer-label shops, nightclubs and café society of the marina at Puerto Banús.
Exceptional seafront villas for sale in Marbella
Heading slightly out of town to the East of Marbella more exceptional seafront villas, penthouses and apartments can be found for sale along some of the best beaches of the Costa del Sol. Los Monteros is one of the most renowned, with the villas here benefiting from large plots and enjoying a good measure of privacy. A taste of classic Marbella glamour can be found at the nearby beach clubs including Trocadero Arena, La Câbane and slightly further away at Elviria’s Nikki Beach.
While Los Monteros—where Antonio Banderas owns a villa—is the most sought after address in this part of Marbella, neighbouring urbanisations offer many of the same benefits of beachside locations set in a natural environment but with golf courses, tennis clubs, restaurants, schools and supermarkets all close to hand. Some of the most desirable areas are Alicate Playa, Bahía de Marbella, Las Chapas, La Morera, La Reserva de Marbella and the marina of Cabopino.
On the other side of Puerto Banús — itself the location of some exceptional seafront homes— is San Pedro de Alcantára and the leafy suburb of Guadalmina. Modern apartment complexes offer excellent style and refinement here, while the villas that border the manicured fairways of the oldest golf club in Marbella (Real Club de Golf Guadalmina) are particularly in demand. These homes offer tranquillity in a peaceful area while being just five minutes’ drive to Puerto Banús and a further ten minutes to Marbella Old Town.
