About the Golden Mile in Marbella

Where is the Golden Mile?

The Golden Mile sits within the Costa del sol region of southern Spain. The mile runs 5 kilometres from Puerto Banus to Marbella centre, far west of the Marbella region. The claim to fame started in the 1960s when Prince Alfonso von Hohenlohe opened a high-end luxury hotel.

Naturally, being royal, the prince had many celebrity friends, and they flocked to stay in his new hotel. Over time, as large mansions came up for sale, they also bought property here, spreading the famous reputation for the Golden Mile. The Marbella Club hotel still stands today and enjoys a prestigious reputation. If you have 900 euros to spend, you can book into one of their grand villas for a night.

Golden Mile Beachside District

Naturally, beachside districts are a focal point of the Golden Mile and Marbella lifestyle. The beachside and promenade are Spain’s best, with many exclusive bars, restaurants, hotels and beach clubs. Beach clubs in the Golden Mile, like the Marbella Club hotel and the Trocadero Petit Playa, boost the coastal ambience with top-notch services and facilities.

Other than that, to chill out for an hour or two, sit in seaside cafés with amazing Mediterranean Sea views while sipping expensive wine. Residential property here sells for millions of pounds, given the Marbella beachfront location but for that, expect the best in décor, design and architecture.

Golden Mile Mountainside District

The Golden Mile mountainside district refers to the area behind the A-7 motorway, and prominent large gated communities like Monte Paraiso, La Carolina, La Virginia and El Capricho also have unique properties to boast about.

Then the northern side breaks into more urban neighbourhoods, including Marbella Hill Club, Lomas de Sierra Blanca, Las Lomas del Marbella Club, Mansion Club, and Los Altos de Puente Romano but a few. Additionally, there is also the Sierra Blanca part of the Golden Mile, which is furthest away from the beach, but houses here boast fantastic sea views.

Dining Out at Puente Romano Plaza Village

One place to be seen on the Golden Mile is the Puente Romano Plaza Village. With a tagline of “An appetite for life – Experience global flavours,” they feature 15 restaurants, including Lena, Dani García’s steak house, the world’s most beautiful restaurant, Nobu Marbella, beachside Chiringuito Puente Romano, delicious gastronomy of Sea Grill, and the sensational entertainment of SupperClub. Book your table well in advance to avoid disappointment if you decide to dine here.
