Quiet, calm Guadalmina Beach is 1,600 meters long and 30 meters wide with a swathe of thick golden sand and sparkling clear water, ideal for wind-surfing and jet-skiing. Guadalmina may be relatively modern, but it is traditional in style. It has its fair share of bars and excellent restaurants but it’s a relaxed and peaceful family-oriented place, not a party town. However, the hot night spots of Marbella and Puerto Banus are just a taxi-ride away. Guadalmina is golfing heaven, with a thirty-six hole golf course and three more great courses nearby, El Paraiso, Atalaya Golf and Monte Mayor. Within a 10 mile radius there are 12 more golf courses. Together they attract holiday golfers from all over Europe.
In 1926 the well-preserved ruins of a small Roman thermal baths complex were discovered near the beach at Guadalmina. There are 7 stone rooms built in a strange octagonal shape, probably dating back to the 3rd century. The Guadalmina Roman Baths are known locally as Las Bovedos, meaning 'The Domes'.
You have a great and diverse choice of beaches from your villa in Guadalmina, from quiet and secluded to popular, lively and active. There are some beautiful coves and bays on the coastline around Estepona with hidden gems such as local favourite El Saladillo which is great for swimming and snorkelling. At the 1 solitary beach bar you can enjoy great seafood and beer – what more do you need? Puerto Banus is one of the liveliest resorts on the Costa del Sol but it does have quieter spots, such as the delightfully named Buddha Beach which has water sports and a beach club for food and refreshments till late into the evening.
