Golden Mile – Marbella
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 developments were established in this area, such as Marbella Club Hotel (1954) and Puente Romano district including Puente Romano Hotel.
