Sierra Blanca is also the name of a specific large luxury urbanization in the upper reaches of the district,  300 metres above sea level and benefiting from superb views overlooking Marbella the Mediterranean coast and over to Africa.

Sierra Blanca takes its name from the Sierra Blanca mountain range (named after the lack of vegetation on its slopes which leaves the pale grey limestone rock exposed) of which La Concha (meaning seashell that it resembles when views from the west), is the 1.270m peak that towers above Marbella and is the second highest peak in the Sierra Blanca range.  The highest peak of Sierra Blanca is the 1,275 m high Pico del Lastonar and other peaks are the Salto del Lobo (1,225 m), Cerro de la Zarina (1,141 m) and the Cruz de Juanar (1,178 m).
