Much is said of the New Golden Mile, the coastal stretch between Estepona and San Pedro Alcántara that is currently one of the most up-and-coming areas of the Costa del Sol, and right at the heart of it is Benamara – one of the classic beachside villa suburbs of Estepona.
Also home to attractive low-rise apartment and townhouse complexes set within lush green gardens, Benamara is a peaceful and private residential area marked by quiet streets and homes within walking distance of secluded beaches. Benamara is situated close to the main coastal road, bringing San Pedro Alcántara, Estepona, Puerto Banús and Marbella within close range as well as schools, golf courses and other amenities. Right on its own doorstep, Benamara has a choice of chiringuito beach bars, restaurants, cafés and also a spa hotel as well as the Marriot, meaning that residents and visitors have a great choice of venues within walking distance of their home.
As is often the case with prime locations, Benamara was one of the first spots on the Costa del Sol to be snapped up by people keen to build a luxury beachside home with fantastic sea views close to Marbella. Even so, many of the villas and apartments here are very up to date, with a good spread of modern and renovated properties featuring the latest styles and amenities in combination with the space, privacy and low-rise development of an established residential area right in the midst of Estepona´s buoyant and upcoming New Golden Mile. Popular apartment complexes in Benamara include El Presidente, Venalmar situated on the beach and Hacienda del Sol.
