Marbella  - Guadalmina Alta  

Guadalmina is a beachside community that straddles the A-7 (old N-340) coast road, dividing it into Guadalmina Alta and Guadalmina Baja. Guadalmina is part of San Pedro which is part of the municipal district of Marbella.

The western boundary runs along the Guadalmina River, which also acts as the Marbella-Estepona municipal boundary. The eastern boundary is the barely noticeable Arroyo del Chopo stream.

Guadalmina Alta is a well-established development whose construction started in the 1960s and continued until the late 1980s, with some further buildings being erected in the 1990s and 2000s. Plots are still available. Read a detailed history of Guadalmina.

Centro Commercial Guadalmina Alta (Guadalmina Alta Shopping Centre) comprises a number of buildings: Edificio La Caixa, Guadalmina Two, Three and Four. Together they provide all amenities and services,including a large supermarket, several banks, numerous restaurants and cafés, furniture stores and many other retail outlets. There is also small row of shops and a café by the golf clubhouse.

The golf clubhouse and starting point for both the North and South courses is located in Guadalmina Alta.

In Guadalmina the streets are numbered rather than named: Calle 17 upwards are in Guadalmina Alta; Calle 4 winds parallel to the main road and links to Calle 8, leading to Hotel Guadalmina; Calle 5, Calle 7 and Calle 3 run along the eastern boundary.

There are a large number of individual villa plots. The original apartment and penthouse constructions are in a slightly Art Nouveau style, featuring rounded concrete balconies and other features. They are all named after tropical birds, such as Edificio Quetzal and Edificio El Iiwi





The main access into Guadalmina is from the junction on the A7 just to the west of the San Pedro underpass. There are also minor access points into the Valle del Sol estate and into San Pedro via Camino Cortes.


The main access artery road in Guadalmina Alta runs north from the junction on the A7.   The golf club is along this access road on the left-hand side.  On the right-hand side is Urb. Guadalmina Alta, and on the corner of junction with 'Camino Cortes' road is the deep red-coloured Barceló Guadalmina Hotel which overlooks the golf course. 

Turning left (west) at this junction along Camino Cortes one finds four original blocks, including Los Flamencos, El Condor plus Ribiera del Guadalmina, and a modern nine-block gated complex with two pools.  

Heading straight on at this junction along Camino de la Granaderia, one finds Urb.Vallas y Golf, private villas and the Linda Vista district.

Turning right (east) at this junction along Camino Cortes after passing the Barceló hotel on the right-hand side one finds the large gated Urb. Campos de Guadalmina and Edificio Tambre. 

Isla de Guadalmina is a post-2000 gated community of exclusive villas. It is an island within the golf course rather than the sea. There are two rings of villas, with the outer facing the golf course and the inner facing the community gardens and pools. It is located on Camino Cortes.

On the left-hand side is San Pedro Golf Club - actually just a driving range but an informal and economic place for beginners to practise. After this is the drive up to Parque de Las Medranas,a great spot by the lake for nature lovers and the location of the Cable Ski and Wakeboarding Centre.

On the right-hand side is the entrance to Hoyo 9 and the road to Edificio Iiwi, with the road continuing as an exit from Guadalmina Alta Estate on Calle Principe de Asturias.
