>Marbella´s Golden Mile

Marbella's "Golden Mile" starts at the western edge of Marbella city (Plaza Bocanegra) and extends for some five kilometres as far as the Río Verde, which is just before Puerto Banús. Before the Marbella by-pass was constructed in 1994, the Golden mile was the main N-340 coast road. It is totally straight in this location giving a clue to its origins as a Roman road and confirmed by the Puente Romano.  

Some of the Marbella's early luxury evelopments were established in this area, such as Marbella Club Hotel (1954) and Puente Romano district including Puente Romano Hotel. 

Golden Mile - Origin of the Name

Like all unofficial geographic terms, the limits of the Golden Mile are not well defined. Some real estate agents include properties a good distance away. The term "Golden Mile" was actually coined in the early 1980s by Roy Boston, the German singer (he had hits with España Olé and La Parranda in 1973) turned property developer, who died in the late 1980s. Unusually for a foreigner in Spain, a road bears his name - near his development Alhambra del Mar.

The original Golden Mile was located in Blackpool, Lancashire, UK and the name was given to the 1.6-mile promenade between the North and South piers due to the excessive number of slot machines. Marbella's Golden Mile, while relatively well known, has not reached high enough international fame to be included in the Wikipedia Golden Mile listing. The even lesser established term "New Golden Mile" refers to the mainly straight stretch of coastal road between San Pedro (Marbella) and Estepona.
