Guadalmina is a beachside community with a 36 hole golf course.

Guadalmina is a beachside community that stradles the A7/N340 coast road, dividing it into Guadalmina Alta and Guadalmina Baja. Its west boundary runs along the Guadalmina River which is also the Marbella / Estepona boundary. Guadalmina is a mature urbanisation mostly developed in the 1980's.  Conveniently located, about 10 minutes from Marbella's Puerto Banus, even closer to the neighbourhood of San Pedro de Alcántara and a 15 minute drive from the town of Estepona.

The urbanisation has two 18 hole golf courses and is close to three more quality courses: Monte Mayor, Atalaya Golf and El Paraiso. It is also only about five minutes' drive from the health clubs at the El Paraiso urbanisation's shopping centre and the Hotel Atalaya.
