Marbella East

Marbella East is a large area that covers urbanisations, villages and suburbs from the edge of Marbella and heading in the direction of Malaga, all the way to Cabopino.

It encompasses different sections of the coast where you will find some great restaurants, bars and some beautiful houses, although, the area is low residential and very green with many golf courses and small forests dotted around.


Discreetly positioned at the centre of the Costa del Sol, the town has retained its highly unique character and yet is beginning to be appreciated by visitors who are lured by the historic charm and character of the place. Part of the city's attraction is that of its intriguing layout which makes it particularly appealing for exploring. There are endless narrow streets, historic buildings and quaint old-fashioned shops which have remained largely unchanged despite the passage of time. This means that Malaga literally has something for everyone; a unique appeal which for one person may derive from the vitality and hospitality of the people, another from the architecture and, still another from the overall ambience and graciousness of the city. Properties situated in luxury urbanizations are highly demanded!Benalmádena  


Benalmádena is divided in different districts, Benalmádena Costa, on the coast; the Puerto Deportivo of Benalmádena, Arroyo de la Miel and 'Benalmádena Pueblo'. There are approximately 50.000 habitants over 30 square kilometres. The highest peak here is the 'Cerro del Moro' with almost 1000m, and from here you can enjoy wonderful views across the Costa del Sol, Benalmádena and to the coast of North Africa and Gibraltar. Puerto Marina is a synonym for entertainment, mainly because of its Marina space for 1100 yachts up to 35m in length and 5m in depth.
