Nestled at the western limit of Marbella, where it meets the neighbouring town of Estepona, Guadalmina Baja is a mature mix of mostly high-end, single-family villas, many on large plots and some with front-line sea or golf views, interspersed with typical Andalusian-style townhouses and modern apartment developments. The area benefits from 24/7 security provided by the community of owners.
Bordered by Guadalmina river to the west, the Arroyo del Chopo to the east, the N340 coastal highway to the north (on the other side of which lies Guadalmina Alta), and the Mediterranean, Guadalmina Baja retains a quiet, genteel feel, yet is just minutes away by car from the bright lights of Puerto Banús and Marbella.
The area’s verdant, shaded streets are also sandwiched between various holes of the South Course of the Guadalmina Club de Golf, which was opened back in 1959 and has hosted international competitions. A second course, north of the coast road, was added in 1973, making the area a firm favorite for golfers.
The four-star Hotel Guadalmina Spa and Golf Resort, located on the beachfront in the southwest of the neighbourhood, is a popular spot for visitors and residents alike, while the area also boasts restaurants, chiringuitos, and a small, but , shopping centre along the N340 road.
