The location of Marae by Urbania is one of the finest in Costa del Sol. It is close to beautiful, unspoilt scenery with wonderful sea views. There is also easy access to many of Malaga’s cities. When you live in an exclusive villa at Marae Residences in Benalmadena, you’ll always have many interesting things to do.



Marae is near to many sandy beaches where you can enjoy activities such as volleyball and windsurfing. Watersports include jet skiing and paddleboarding. A quiet beach is Playa de Torremuelle. It is in a small cove sheltered by low, rugged cliffs. To the west is Playa de Carvajal. This is a much larger beach with soft, dark sand that’s very popular with families. Playa Arroyo Hondo is very picturesque with a shoreline of bushes. The sea is also noted for being calm at this beach making it good choice for swimming. An unusual beach of sand and fine pebbles is at Playa Tajo de la Soga. Many scuba divers like to explore the submerged rocks at this location.
