Undoubtedly, the pleasant climate throughout the year, the wide range of hotels and services, and the relaxed but cosmopolitan lifestyle are factors that make Marbella a safe bet when it comes to investing in housing. 

Marbella is in a privileged location on the Costa del Sol, still, each area has its specific conditions and characteristics that make them unique places depending on our needs and preferences. Do you want to know which are the best areas of Marbella to invest in? In this post, we will go through the most valued locations in this city and we will see why they are perfect to live in or acquire a second home.


Which are the best areas of Marbella?

Marbella has been, for years, the capital and meeting place of the jet set in Spain. Glamour, luxury shops, services, and mild temperatures all year round. All this mixed with the traditional Andalusian culture and peculiarities. The urban growth of the city of Marbella, therefore, is outstanding, especially in terms of high-end housing.

Although Marbella is quite uniform, the areas change depending on the characteristics, services... In particular, we wanted to highlight five areas: Cabopino, Las Chapas, Elviria, Nueva Andalucía and the Golden Mile, which we will focus on later. Of course, the suitability of each area will depend on the needs and possibilities of the buyer.



Just 15 minutes by car from Marbella city you will find this quiet town with residential complexes and villas ideal for families. Away from the social hustle and bustle of the capital, perfect to enjoy a relaxing atmosphere on the beach with all the comforts within reach. 

Cabopino is surrounded by spectacular natural landscapes, such as forests and pine forests, dunes, as well as golf courses and a marina. All this splashed by the waters of the Mediterranean sea on a large beach with golden sand.


Las Chapas

This residential area is one of the best areas of Marbella to invest in housing. Just a few minutes from the Old Town, Las Chapas is perfect for families as it has international schools, more spacious homes, and a wide range of services. In Las Chapas the relaxed atmosphere reigns, the most beautiful beaches in the area (such as Los Monteros or El Alicate), and a diverse gastronomic offer and exclusive leisure.

In addition, it has a complete range of services, such as international schools, sports areas and the Costa del Sol public hospital.



This small fishing area of ​​Marbella is calm and peaceful. Very close to the city center but with the tranquility and peace of living on the beach. 

Elviria is a town that is increasingly in demand. The area is growing quickly due to the availability of area for construction of new properties and the attractiveness of its beaches.

Nueva Andalucía

In the west zone of Marbella we find another of the best areas, Nueva Andalucía. Known as "The Golf Valley", it includes the best golf courses in a privileged settlement. Names like Aloha, Los Naranjos, or Las Brisas are well known among fans of this sport. 

Nueva Andalucía represents residential luxury in an exceptional location located between the sea and the mountains. Not surprisingly, it is one of the most expensive areas per square meter in Spain. Residences with astonishing views and access to golf courses are the most expensive in the area.


Marbella's Golden Mile, the most expensive area of ​​Marbella

Special mention for the famous “Milla de Oro” in Marbella. The most valued and glamorous area of ​​the Costa del Sol extends from Marbella’s Old Town to Puerto Banús. Nightlife, luxury fashion stores, and exclusive restaurants are a great attraction for the jet set, not only national but also international.
