The New Golden Mile Area Guide

With the beautiful Mediterranean coastline on one side and the La Concha mountain range of the other, the New Golden Mile is one of the most popular, up and coming residential areas on the Costa Del Sol.  It is conveniently located between Marbella West and Estepona, making it the perfect spot for those choosing to live in Spain.  It has become much more popular with tourists in the last few years.  The New Golden Mile is easily accessible from Marbella, which is just a short drive away, and from Malaga airport which is around forty five minutes by car.

As well as being so close to some of the coastlines most visited attractions, the mile itself features some of the best beaches in the region.  The beaches are surprisingly quiet, even in the busiest seasons of the year, and you can find an impressive variety of beach bars and restaurants along the promenade.

The growing popularity of the New Golden Mile can be put donw to the high quality properties on offer.  The development of this area has been carefully planned which makes it a very sought after area for those looking to buy Spanish property.  There are not any high rise constructions, and there is a variety of high quality villas with both sea and mountain views along the urbanisation.  Over the last couple of years the New Golden Mile has evolved massively.

The area appeals to families, couples and individuals alike thanks to its ideal location and the abundance of local amenities.  Along the coastal highway there are tranquil beaches, beach clubs, restaurants, shops and several world class golf courses including Guadalmina, Atalaya, Los Flamingos (3 courses), La Resina Gol and El Paraiso.  One of the main landmarks is the Selwo Wildlife and Adventure Park, which is big attraction for both tourists and residents and is well worth a visit.
