Extending from the western edge of Marbella town and connecting it to Puerto Banús, the famed Golden Mile is in reality an extension of the original N-340 coastal road that has connected much of the Costa del Sol for many decades.
However, this elegant fairway lined with palm trees, parks and many of the finest mansions in Marbella, is far more than just a road; it is a grand avenue that passes such icons as the Marbella Club and Puente Romano hotels, en route between Marbella and Puerto Banús.
The Golden Mile is therefore at the heart of Marbella and its glamorous appeal, offering refined views with La Concha Mountain as a backdrop. Just behind the luxurious homes and resort hotels are some of the best beaches and beach clubs in Marbella, and the area has also become a hub for fine dining.
The best address in town
It is, quite frankly, the best address in Marbella, and one of the finest on the Mediterranean shoreline, with especially the beachside area highly sought after by an international clientele that seeks out stunning beachfront villas, apartments and penthouses in areas such as Casablanca, Santa Petronila, Santa Margarita, Las Torres, Puente Romano, Los Verdiales and Oasis.
The mountainside part of the Golden Mile offers lovely villas, apartments, townhouses and private plots for development with stunning coastal views in areas such as Cascada de Camoján, Sierra Blanca, Marbella Hill Club, Las Lomas del Marbella Club, El Vicario, La Carolina, Rocío de Nagüeles and Río Verde to name a few.
Originally the term was used to define the areas immediately bordering the N-340 road from Marbella to Puerto Banús, including the Saudi royal summer residence, the nearby mosque and the Don Pepe, Marbella Club and Puente Romano Hotels. Over time, the term has come to include adjacent areas in the hills above Marbella, such as Rocio de Nagüeles, Sierra Blanca and Cascada de Camoján, which now share the lustre of being within Marbella’s finest address.
