The New Golden Mile is the stretch between San Pedro in Marbella and the East part of Estepona. The beaches along the New Golden Mile are notorious for its fine golden sand and the clear waters of the Mediterranean lapping gently along the shore, hence the name of the area.
The New Golden Mile has evolved over the past couple of decades and as many of the resorts along the Costa del Sol; it is divided into two geographical areas: a beachside and a hillside location.
The development of this area was carefully planned, without any high-rise constructions and respecting the environment, nothing was built too close to the shore, thus making it a sought after area to buy property.
On the beachfront area of the New Golden Mile, we find fantastic quality developments like Costalita, Cabo Bermejo, Torre Bermeja and Hacienda del Sol, which are very popular amongst Northern European buyers.
On the hillside of the coastal road, we find other well-established areas known as Atalaya, Bel-Air, Benavista, Benamara, El Paraiso and the village of La Cancelada. These are very popular locations because they have many amenities, including bars, restaurants, supermarkets and shops; and they are still within walking distance to the beach.
Los Flamingos, which is an exclusive, gated, private, luxury residential development, sits behind the New Golden Mile. The Villa Padierna Palace Hotel is found within the urbanisation where residents can enjoy the fine dining, excellent golf and luxury spa.
The New Golden Mile appeals to families and retired people alike because of its location and for being situated less than 10 minutes' drive to buzzy Marbella and the more traditional Estepona.
Sur Estates has a fantastic selection of beachfront, beachside and hillside properties for sale in the New Golden Mile, including quality developments like Costalita del Mar, Cabo Bermejo, Torre Bermeja and Los Flamingos that are exceptional value for money.
