Guadalmina Alta and Guadalmina Baja: where is the best place to buy a property?

Guadalmina Alta and Guadalmina Baja form part of one of the most sought-after areas on the coast of Malaga. It comprises a group of properties, where the population does not exceed 4,000 inhabitants in the low season. However, this number multiplies during holiday periods, given its popularity. More than half of the residents are foreigners, specifically from the United Kingdom, Switzerland, Denmark, Sweden and Norway, although there are also Spaniards, mostly from Madrid and the Basque Country.

This residential area has luxury villas and high quality properties. Each is charming in its own way. On the one hand, those closest to the beach have the privilege of enjoying the sea breeze and all its pleasures. On the other hand, those located further inland are, in many cases, more exclusive and private.

Guadalmina and its lifestyle is compatible with people from all walks of life and offers great opportunities to enjoy the scenery and the many activities of the area, regardless of the area you are in.

Areas of Guadalmina

It is divided into two parts, Guadalmina Alta and Guadalmina Baja. Guadalmina Alta is situated above the A7 road, in other words, to the north, in the mountain area. The southern part is the part next to the beach and below the aforementioned road.

Residents in both areas of Guadalmina have their own golf course and are surrounded by developments and villas of the highest standards of quality, design and decoration. Good views are a constant feature, of the sea and the mountains alike, as well as the surroundings full of trees, palm trees and landscaped areas.

The lower part has large villas that have the privilege of being close to the beach. This gives them a Mediterranean air and a pleasant temperature nearly all year round.

In Guadalmina Alta, there are villas for those seeking more privacy, where there is an abundance of newly built and renovated properties in recent years, as well as a number of apartment complexes. The most sought-after properties are those located next to golf courses.

Where to buy a house?

Everything will depend on the type of property sought for in Guadalmina and its characteristics: the size of the plot, the number of rooms, the design of the construction or its location, among others.

When it comes to choosing, prices rise as the properties get closer to the sea. In the lower area, those on the beachfront tend to be the most exclusive and have the best surroundings. On the other hand, those in the upper area are somewhat more secluded and quieter. In any case, the proximity to a golf course is guaranteed. The choice will depend on your lifestyle.
