You can also enjoy a fabulous promenade, recognized for being one of the longest and most beautiful in Europe, which has the best beach clubs and restaurants in Marbella.

The beach is only a few steps away, and that is why its villas are the ones with the highest demand and the lowest supply. Some villas reach 50 million euros.

Golden Mile Restaurants

Between the center of Marbella and Puerto Banús, stretches a strip of coastline where luxury and exclusivity are the maxims. Already known as the Golden Mile, it concentrates the most expensive properties, the most spectacular hotels, the shops of the major fashion brands (Dior, Hermès, Gucci…) and, for some time now, the best restaurants in the southeast of the peninsula.

In this area, the king is undoubtedly the acclaimed Andalusian chef Dani García, with his three emblematic establishments: Lobito de Mar, Bibo and of course the two Michelin stars that bear his name.

La Milla has two separate areas, the popular and the gourmet, each with its own menu. The popular space, more on the street, serves classic dishes such as lobster paella, arroz del señorito, arroz caldoso, arroz con squid and, of course, the famous skewers from Malaga. The gourmet space, for its part, stands out for its fried egg with caviar and white shrimp at a low temperature and for the red shrimp tartare. Its gastronomic offer is undoubtedly the most varied and extensive for all tastes, budgets and flavors.
