Three words epitomise Marbella: Glamour, sunshine and shoreline. But how much of the sea and the glamorous nightlife you’ll see depends on where you stay, naturally. So, before choosing your next property in Marbella, it’s important to understand the nuances of the different areas and property options available.
Can I dip my toes in the sand in under 5 minutes? Will I wake up to a cooling sea breeze in summer? Will I be able to gaze out at lovely sea views? These are all valid questions, and we hear you!
One of Marbella’s greatest gifts is lazing on the beach in the daytime and then taking a stroll by the promenade in the evening. The soothing sounds of the sea help us forget the daily grind, so it’s no surprise that guests often ask to be as close to the beach as possible.
Read on to learn a little more about the subtle differences in Marbella’s many beachfront areas and our recommendations for some of the finest vacation properties within walking distance of the water.
Areas to Choose that are Walking Distance to the Beach in Marbella
When choosing your next home-from-home, if proximity to the beach is a requirement, choose areas closest to the shore, such as The Golden Mile, Elviria or Puerto Banus.
If you want glamour, sun and sea, all of these areas work, but The Golden Mile has to win on all counts!
At Swish we have several stunning villas and apartments on The Golden Mile, a charming stretch that runs between Puerto Banus and Marbella centre, home to the city’s famous iconic hotels and many top restaurants. Try these for size!
