Marbella is known for its restaurants, trendy clubs and vibrant nightlife, but one of the biggest attractions of the town is a little more laid back and relaxed—its palm-lined Paseo Marítimo seafront promenade offers a stylish venue for gentle exercise, a scenic stroll or just somewhere to see and be seen.

Marbella promenadeThis is no ordinary promenade, stretching as it does along six kilometres of golden beaches from the La Bajadilla fishing port—where you can spot the traditional blue and white trawlers as they land their catch—along the Marbella seafront and the Golden Mile to the luxurious Puerto Banús, home to a glistening parade of superyachts.

The marble-paved thoroughfare is in itself a microcosm of Marbella life, where beautifully coiffed and designer-label clad fashionistas can often be seen tottering along in killer heels while rubbing shoulders with tourists making their way to the beach.

Marbella sea views

The Paseo Marítimo is the perfect spot to enjoy Marbella’s indoor/outdoor lifestyle to the full, with the spectacular views across the sparkling Mediterranean Sea to the imposing Rif Mountains of Morocco and the Rock of Gibraltar making it worth a trip in itself. The ‘paseo’ is popular not just with walkers but joggers, roller-bladers and cyclists as well—bikes can be hired locally, as can electric Segways for those wanting a bit of high-tech fun—giving the town a certain California flavour.

Trendy cafés, quality restaurants, designer label shops, malls and even a cinema can all be found bordering the elegant walk, while the unique Avenida del Mar that leads from the La Alameda gardens at the heart of Marbella to the Paseo Marítimo is worth a slight detour. This bright marble boulevard is home to a series of bronze sculptures by Spanish master Salvador Dalí, offering a chance to view pieces up close that would normally be hidden away in a gallery.

Luxurious Golden Mile properties

Walking from the town centre towards Puerto Banús you pass along the famous Golden Mile—location of some of the most luxurious properties in Marbella as well as those jet-set playgrounds of the rich and famous; the Marbella Club and Puente Romano hotels. Here can be found some of the best restaurants on the Costa del Sol as well as several of the iconic beach clubs that have helped build Marbella’s reputation as a place for elegant relaxation during the day and party fun in the evening.

The Paseo Marítimo finally ends as it crosses the wooden bridge over the Río Verde and approaches Puerto Banús—a fitting destination for this most up-market of promenades.

The stylish walkway is home to some of the town’s finest real estate. Should you be interested in buying or renting a property here, Hansa Realty has a fine selection of seafront villas and apartments for sale on Marbella’s Paseo Marítimo. Please contact us for more details.
