Marbella´s seafront promenade.
One of the best known Mediterranean resort towns, Marbella is renowned for a luxurious lifestyle made up of, amongst others, fine dining restaurants, first class leisure facilities and endless sandy beaches.
This is reflected in many of the elegant, stylish villas in the resort town, properties for sale that are some of the most desirable in Spain. These range from spacious residences in exclusive country clubs such as La Zagaleta to designer homes in fashionable Puerto Banús; but perhaps some of the most sought after of all are the frontline beach properties Marbella has to offer.
Boasting 24 kilometres of coastline, the town has some exceptional sandy beaches and coastal pathways. With their uninterrupted sea views across the Mediterranean to Africa, beachside homes here are something special and perhaps epitomise the Marbella dream more than any other property.
See and be seen on Marbella´s elegant seafront promenade.
Marbella is known for its restaurants, trendy clubs and vibrant nightlife, but one of the biggest attractions of the town is a little more laid back and relaxed—its palm-lined Paseo Marítimo seafront promenade offers a stylish venue for gentle exercise, a scenic stroll or just somewhere to see and be seen.
This is no ordinary promenade, stretching as it does along six kilometres of golden beaches from the La Bajadilla fishing port—where you can spot the traditional blue and white trawlers as they land their catch—along the Marbella seafront and the Golden Mile to the luxurious Puerto Banús, home to a glistening parade of superyachts.
The marble-paved thoroughfare is in itself a microcosm of Marbella life, where beautifully coiffed and designer-label clad fashionistas can often be seen tottering along in killer heels while rubbing shoulders with tourists making their way to the beach.
Marbella sea views
The Paseo Marítimo is the perfect spot to enjoy Marbella’s indoor/outdoor lifestyle to the full, with the spectacular views across the sparkling Mediterranean Sea to the imposing Rif Mountains of Morocco and the Rock of Gibraltar making it worth a trip in itself. The ‘paseo’ is popular not just with walkers but joggers, roller-bladers and cyclists as well—bikes can be hired locally, as can electric Segways for those wanting a bit of high-tech fun—giving the town a certain California flavour.
There is no shortage of things to see and do either, apart from the obvious delights of the sandy beaches and calm waters of the sea lapping gently at the shore. Trendy cafés, quality restaurants, designer label shops, malls and even a cinema can all be found bordering the elegant walk, while the unique Avenida del Mar that leads from the La Alameda gardens at the heart of Marbella to the Paseo Marítimo is worth a slight detour. This bright marble boulevard is home to a series of bronze sculptures by Spanish master Salvador Dalí, offering a chance to view pieces up close that would normally be hidden away in a gallery.
Luxurious Golden Mile properties
Walking from the town centre towards Puerto Banús you pass along the famous Golden Mile—location of some of the most luxurious properties in Marbella as well as those jet-set playgrounds of the rich and famous; the Marbella Club and Puente Romano hotels. Here can be found some of the best restaurants on the Costa del Sol as well as several of the iconic beach clubs that have helped build Marbella’s reputation as a place for elegant relaxation during the day and party fun in the evening.
The Paseo Marítimo finally ends as it crosses the wooden bridge over the Río Verde and approaches Puerto Banús—a fitting destination for this most up-market of promenades.
