In HOLLYWOOD style, quite literally, the ‘BAHIA DE MARBELLA’ letters sprawl across the landscape of the outskirts of Marbella centre.

Bahia de Marbella is a lovely development of white-washed houses arranged in a village style, leading directly out on to the sand dunes of Playa Alicante. You may have spotted the Hollywood style sign opposite the hospital, or the archway leading into the gated urbanisation, but probably haven’t ventured inside. We’d definitely recommend this prestigious urbanisation if you’re looking for peace and quiet, with easy access to the beach and central Marbella.

Located opposite the Costa del Sol Hospital, just off the coastal highway and on the outskirts of Marbella town, Bahia de Marbella is a very popular urbanisation for foreign residents, tourists and Spanish nationals alike. Coming off the main road and into the residential development you’ll be surprised how peaceful and green it is. Head down towards the beach and you’ll find Bahia de Marbella; a secure development with underground parking, laced with pretty paths winding through lush gardens to the properties and several family-friendly pools.

There are a range of property options within Bahia de Marbella, including 66 detached properties, terraced townhouses, apartments and penthouses. They have been cleverly designed to ensure the maximum number of properties have a southern-orientation, enabling you to enjoy the sun and sea views from the terraces. There is a gate leading from the development straight out onto the beach and the wild stretch of protected dunes beyond.

Sports fans will be in heaven in Bahia de Marbella. If you are a rugby fan, you’re right next door to the highly successful Marbella Rugby Club, which has both kids’ and adults’ teams, a great little bar and restaurant and a friendly community feel. You’re also just over the road from Santa Clara Golf, Marbella Golf and Country Club and Rio Real Golf Course, so golfers are spoilt for choice. Last but not least, you have the Los Monteros Racquet Club just a few minutes’ drive away.
You’re also within a short walk along the beach from the popular restaurant and bar Trocadero Arena, and there are also a number of nice beachfront restaurants to try.

Not to be missed: The nearby golf courses, the sand dunes and a trip to Marbella Rugby Club on match day.

Fun Fact: The dunes are a Nature Reserve which were saved from destruction in 2004 by the Pro Dunas Association and was the first dune ecosystem in Marbella to be protected.
