Marbella best areas

The most luxurious apartments, penthouses and villas in Marbella can be found not just in one area but in a series of top addresses that together make this one of the jewels of the Mediterranean.

The Golden Mile

At the very pinnacle of the Marbella real estate market you will find the Golden Mile, the elegant avenue that connects Puerto Banús and Marbella town. Here you will find a millionaire’s row the likes of which are rare in Europe, with beachfront penthouses and villas enjoying views across a very private stretch of shore lined with some of the most exclusive beach clubs and resort hotels, such as the Marbella Club and Puente Romano.

La Zagaleta

For those who prefer a degree of seclusion amid nature on large private grounds La Zagaleta is the ultimate country club. It operates a residents-only policy, though invited guests are also welcome to enjoy the two magnificent 18-hole golf courses, the refined clubhouse and the racquet club and equestrian centre. Villas for sale in La Zagaleta often command the highest selling prices in the region.

Sierra Blanca

An alternative to La Zagaleta, this area offers privacy within a gated community that enjoys commanding views of Marbella and its shoreline yet is never more than a few minutes from the downtown area and Puerto Banús. The villas in Sierra Blanca dominate the residential market here, though there are also some select apartment complexes.

Los Monteros

The unchallenged luxury hotspot on the eastern side of Marbella, Los Monteros still offers the now rather unique opportunity to own a frontline beach villa in Marbella on a sizeable piece of land. Peaceful, elegant and leafy, this lovely residential area is situated between golf and sea, with Marbella just a few minutes away.


Another residential area that ranks among the elite of Marbella is Guadalmina, and in particular the beachside zone of Guadalmina Baja, which meanders between beach and golf fairways. The villas for sale in Guadalmina stand on large private plots, giving this leafy residential area a sense of privacy, tranquillity and space.

Nueva Andalucía

Perhaps the most accessible in price among the top addresses in Marbella, Nueva Andalucía is a sizeable area that provides potential homebuyers with a wide range of property options and settings. The main part is known as the Golf Valley, where the attractive Nueva Andalucía villas are dotted between the greenery of beautiful golf courses such as Las Brisas, Los Naranjos and Aloha.

All the areas mentioned are within a few minutes drive of Marbella town, Puerto Banús, beaches, schools and golf.
