The Lower area, the one next to the sea, is made up of beautiful and spacious villas with gardens and its tranquility is extreme. Among the owners of these villas are former presidents of government, aristocrats or very famous national or international families.

Only a few cars belonging to its residents circulate, except for those staying at its beautiful four-star hotel Guadalmina Spa & Golf Resort. This beautiful hotel features an 18-hole golf course, a nine-hole driving range and three famous restaurants, as well as a beach club.

Where the golf course ends, the only one in Marbella with sea views. It is an area isolated from noise, pollution and very relaxing, which is an advantage for a very discreet day-to-day life.

Guadalmina Baja extends from the Mediterranean highway to the sea, a strip of about 500 – 600 meters wide. Its beach goes from the promenade of San Pedro de Alcántara to the beginning of Estepona, a route of approximately 1.5 km. The large villas literally extend their gardens to the sand and have no promenade, just a few beach bars and the beach club of the Guadalmina hotel, with one of the few golf courses that ends where the sand begins just a few meters from the sea. A beautiful postcard.
