What is The Marbella Golden Mile

30th August 2023

The Marbella Golden Mile is a promenade that extends for 5km along the coast of Marbella, ranging from Puerto Banus to the Piruli. The Piruli is a type of monolith that resembles that of a lighthouse. For many, it acts as the figure for the entrance of Marbella and is a reminder of the aesthetic that former president Jesus Gil brought into Marbella.

The Marbella Golden Mile is a highly prestigious area due to its proximity to the beach, making properties on this strip the most sought-after. It is home to some of the best 5-star hotels in Marbella, such as the Marbella Club Hotel and the Puente Romano Resort, as well as many Michelin-star restaurants and amenities. The name itself indicates the prestige the promenade holds, with many of the longest-standing businesses sitting on the Marbella Golden Mile.

It is important to understand that the Marbella Golden Mile isn't classified as a district, like in the cases of Nueva Andalucia or Marbella. It is simply a name designated to the strip and its surrounding areas. Interestingly enough, people in Marbella have the conceptions of what is considered the Marbella Golden Mile and what isn't. For instance, some may consider Sierra Blanca to be part of the Marbella Golden Mile, although it is quite far from the strip itself. Nagueles, Puente Romano, Lomas de Marbella, El Vicario, Monte Paraiso and El Capricho are sub-areas under the Golden Mile.
