Marbella Golden Mile
The Golden Mile is a 6 km long strip of land that stretches from the Western way out of Marbella, until Puerto Banus.
It is divided in 2 parts through its length by the coastal road that runs parallel to the seafront, the Southern part being the coastal side per se, the Northern part being the land that widens until the foothills of La Concha, this mountain overlooking Marbella West.
This name Golden Mile was coined in the mid 90’s, as the recognition of the amount of wealth, luxury, glamour, and therefore price of real estate, concentrated on this piece of land.
Its origin dates back to the 50’s when the Spanish Prince Alfonso von Hohenloe opened a luxury Hotel which is still there, The Marbella Club Hotel.
In the 60’s world famous stars like Sean Conery, Brigitte Bardot and many others started to flock to the place, together with millionaires, artists, politicians, sport personalities… Other 5 stars hotels were built, like the Puente Romano, whose name is due to the remains of an old Roman bridge dating back to the 1st Century AD.
Now the Golden Mile is one of the most luxury tracts of real estate in Europe.
There you find exclusive villas, luxury apartment buildings, trendy restaurants, lounges and clubs like Nobu, Olivia Valere.
The pedestrian promenade along the seaside is one of the longest in Europe, with lots of beach clubs and beach restaurants along the way.
On the mountain side of the Golden mile can be found the most exclusive residential areas/condominiums (“Urbanizations”), like Sierra Blanca, Cascada de Camojan, Nagueles, Marbella Hill Club, Los Altos de Puente Romano, Monte Paraiso...
