Luxury is an established standard in Marbella East, due to the high quality of life imparted by the tranquillity, leisure and extraordinary beauty of its landscape. It is a place for beach lovers who desire to enjoy infinite seascapes reaching all the way to Africa and for people who know how to deeply experience the green countryside, beautiful gardens and golf.
Amongst nature and wild beaches
Marbella East is the most natural and pristine area of the entire city of Marbella. The western part of the city enjoys greater global popularity because the Golden Mile (link) and Puerto Banus (link) are located there. Nevertheless, people who are familiar with the area know that Marbella East is a real paradise, just like Eden.
Where Exactly is Marbella East?
Marbella East is the first part of Marbella after leaving Mijas Costa. It extends just up to the Marbella Entrance Arch, where it becomes an urban area and Marbella Centro (link) begins. As soon as you see the “Welcome to Marbella” sign on the highway, you will be amazed by the lush greenery, spaced-out buildings and beautiful coastline.
Marbella East is the gateway to Marbella as one travels from Malaga towards Algeciras and it is a 12 kilometre-long strip of land. However, it is a very large area which is divided into two parts as far as real estate is concerned. On one side is the highway, a fringe stretch of the maritime area with the best beaches in Marbella; on the other side of the highway is a group of large mountain slopes with well-kept neighbourhoods.
