Menara Beach (Large)

Menara Beach – © 2018 Sur Estates

The Urbanization Menara Beach is a luxury residential complex that is situated on the beachfront on the New Golden Mile of the Costa del Sol, exactly on the Guadalmansa Beach in Estepona.

The Guadalmansa Beach is located 10 kilometers from the center of Estepona and about 11 kilometers from Puerto Banús.

This beach is perfect for those residents or visitors who want to escape the crowds of some beaches in the summer months. Guadalmansa Beach also has a very spacious green area, perfectly maintained, where we find a magnificent watchtower known as the “Tower of Guadalmansa” that was built in the 10th century by Muslims, this being one of the seven watchtowers that we find in Estepona. With its 14 meters of height, said tower is one of the most beautiful of all the coast of Malaga.

The beach of Guadalmansa has a very large parking area, a restaurant and several beach bars where you can rent umbrellas, hammocks and sun loungers. In it we also find showers and public toilets, as well as an area enabled for water sport activities such as canoeing, kite surfing and sailing.

This exclusive development on the beachfront was completed in 2002 and bears the signature of Melvin Villaroel Roldan, one of the most renowned architects in Spain, renowned for his avant-garde designs and creator of some of the most exclusive developments on the Costa del Sol.

The Urbanization Menara Beach is composed of 21 blocks, divided into 3 zones and built in the shape of “Y”. These blocks have a maximum height of 4 floors. Menara Beach consists of 105 luxury apartments in which we find apartments on the ground floor with private garden, on the first floor with very large terraces and duplex penthouses. Each block has 5 homes, 2 on the ground floor, 2 on the first floor and above the duplex penthouses, so all apartments are usually very private, since at most they have only one neighbor next door per block.

The apartments in Menara Beach are positioned in three different orientations.

We have southeast facing homes, southwest facing properties and south facing estates. All the houses in this luxury complex are very bright and the architects studied the land very well to position the houses so that you have the greatest exposure to the sun, so any orientation is excellent.

The difference between the orientations that we find is that the homes oriented to the southeast, usually have morning light, from dawn to 1:00 pm/2:00pm depending on the time of year. This orientation is very advantageous especially in the summer months, since there is usually shade in the afternoon when it is warmer. This orientation is usually preferred among Spanish owners or people who reside on the Costa del Sol throughout the year.

The apartments with southwest orientation usually have direct light from 11:00 am to 12:00 am depending on the time of year, until the last hour of sunset, which in summer can arrive until 10:30 pm. This orientation is usually preferred by non-resident and foreign owners, since sun exposure is greater and they usually want to make the most of sunny hours on their terraces. These apartments are especially nice in the winter months, when the sun is usually lower and not as strong.

The properties with south orientation in Menara Beach are very few and usually face the sea. Although the idea of having a south orientation is usually related to “having sun in the house all day”, the apartments in this urbanization of the luxury oriented to the south, usually have sun from 9:00 am/10:00am, to the 7:00 pm/8:00pm depending on the time of year.
The apartments in Menara Beach are very spacious; the smallest are 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms with an area of 157m2 built (122m2 of housing plus 35m2 of terrace). The duplex penthouses of 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms are usually the most spacious and have a total area of 288m2 (188m2 of housing plus 80m2 of terrace).

In the common areas of the complex we find 3 swimming pools. Two of them are outside and one of them has a waterfall, while the heated pool is inside with an ideal temperature all year. In the indoor pool area we also find saunas (divided for men and women), a gym, library, table tennis and vending machines for drinks and snacks. In addition, there is a summer bar where in the summer there is live music.

Menara Beach has magnificent tropical gardens with streams and ponds that lead to the sea, where the owners can enjoy stunning views of the Mediterranean, Gibraltar and the African coast.  The complex also offers a very secure environment, with video surveillance and 24-hour security.

Menara Beach offers a unique environment, ideal for those who want to live in a quiet environment and one of the most exclusive environments the Costa del Sol can offer.
