New Golden Mile
The New Golden Mile is the stretch of coastline between San Pedro de Alcántara and Estepona. The beaches in the area are well known for their clear waters and golden sand, which is where its name derives from.
The area is packed with resorts, golf courses, hotels, luxurious urbanisations and every amenity imaginable. The area has been carefully built, not allowing any high-rise buildings to avoid spoiling the area or allow it to be too overbuilt. Considerations were taken in place to not disrupt the environment or the beaches by not allowing anything to be built close to the shores.
Developments on the New Golden Mile include Cabo Bermejo, Hacienda del Sol and Costalita, all of which are very popular with foreign buyers. Other established areas include Atalaya, El Paraíso and the town of La Cancelada. Los Flamingos, a luxury and exclusive gated community is on the New Golden Mile, and the famous Villa Padierna Hotel is located inside Los Flamingos.
The New Golden Mile is popular amongst families and the retired community due to its tranquility, but also for its abundance of private international schools. It’s perfectly situated between modern Marbella and traditional Andalusian Estepona.
