Buying a property in The New Golden Mile
The New Golden Mile is a strip of land stretching from the west side of Guadalmina all the way west towards the start of central Estepona. The name "The New Golden Mile" was given to this area during the property boom of the early 2000's and although this name is commonly used on the coast it is not actually an official name at all! Due to the success and exclusivity of the neighbouring "Golden Mile" in Marbella, the theory was that such a name would help secure this almost beach front location as quite simply, the "New Golden Mile!"
Most of the area is located beachside of the A7 coastal road, and although many properties for sale in The New Golden Mile are extremely close to the beach, they are in turn quite a distance from often the most basic of amenities, such as a supermarket, meaning the use of a car, taxi or the coastal road bus service become almost essential.
There are a variety of properties for sale in The New Golden Mile, Estepona, with many new prestigious developments home to luxury apartments and penthouses in stunning beachfront locations. During 2014 the New Golden Mile has without doubt become one of the prime property hotspots on the southern coast which has seen incredible price rises and an increase of property sales which we believe is a trend that will continue late into 2015. It is the home to a great commercial centre named Laguna Village, where you find many designer shops as well as the world famous Puro Beach club.
The main developments on the beachside of the New Golden Mile consist of Hacienda del Sol, El Presidente, Benamara, Cosmo Beach, Los Granados Playa, Los Granados del Mar, Hacienda Beach, Bahia de La Plata, Costalita and Guadalmansa Playa. Guadalmansa Playa comprises of Menara Beach, Cabo Bermejo and Torre Bermeja, where you will find some of the most luxurious apartments and penthouses for sale in Estepona. On the mountainside you find many other developments of apartments and townhouses, but most on this side of the road are at least within walking distance of some basic amenities.
Broken up into small groups of developments, the main areas on the mountain side are Diana Park, Benavista, El Paraiso, Los Flamingos, Cancelada, Bel Air and Selwo (which is the home of the very popular Selwo Safari Park!)
