Why it’s called the New Golden Mile

The original Golden Mile, between Marbella centre and Puerto Banús, acquired its name and fame due to the quality of its amenities, the refinement of its properties and the beauty of its prime beachfront setting. The New Golden Mile, which describes the coastal area between San Pedro Alcántara and Estepona, has so many outstanding features of its own that it became too tempting not to make a comparison.

The coastal setting is just as spectacular, with fantastic sea views from the New Golden Mile, Estepona, to Gibraltar, North Africa and along the Spanish shoreline. As with the Golden Mile, here too there is a gentle rise from the beaches along the coastal plain to breath-taking mountain scenery, and this forms the basis for many of the residential areas that front lofty golf courses. In fact, in having golf courses within its midst, the Estepona New Golden Mile is one step ahead of its predecessor. Among the leading golf courses in the New Golden Mile area are El Paraíso, Los Flamingos, Atalaya and La Resina, with Monte Mayor and Guadalmina nearby.

New Golden Mile – new luxury lifestyle destination

Other sports available here include some of the best tennis and paddle tennis clubs on the Costa del Sol, water sports such as sailing, scuba diving, windsurfing and kite-surfing, jet ski and more. The nearby Sierra Bermeja mountains are ideal for hiking, mountain biking and horse riding, with the Escuela de Arte Ecuestre Costa del Sol perhaps the very best facility of its kind in the region. It not only provides coaching, stabling facilities, day trails and first-class veterinary care, but also hosts regular equestrian shows that make this the centre for the sport in the area.

Many who have bought homes in this part of the greater Marbella area or are currently looking to buy property on the New Golden Mile first came to know it by staying in one of the luxurious resort hotels in the area, such as the Anantara Villa Padierna Palace Hotel, the Kempinski Hotel Bahía, the Healthouse Las Dunas and the new Ikos Andalusia resort hotel – all known for their luxurious spas and fine dining restaurants. In fact, there are many good restaurants on the New Golden Mile and Estepona.

It’s a luxury lifestyle destination that has been up-and-coming for some time now, and today is ready to compete with more established luxury Marbella locations such as the original Golden Mile. For families that live here year-round the amenities also include the excellent Hospiten private hospital and a good number of clinics and medical practices, as well as professional services and schools, the latter in the form of the Atalaya bilingual school, the Mayfair International Academy, the International School Estepona and also the highly respected Colegio San José.
