ATALAYA AND THE NEW GOLDEN MILE
ATALAYA AND THE NEW GOLDEN MILE – BACKGROUND
Some say the name The New Mile comes from the fine golden sand along this stretch of the Mediterranean coastline, but I am not so sure about that! Perhaps the name was invested by developers or real estate agents to make a new stretch of coastline attractive to possible buyers, by associating it with salubrious “The Golden Mile” . I am not sure when the name came about, but it was certainly before 2002 when I move to the coast.

ATALAYA AND THE NEW GOLDEN MILE – PLANNING AND DEVELOPMENT
Atalaya and The New Golden Mile has changed over the past several years with the advent of several developments, resorts and hotels which have been built along the stretch. Perhaps it was a mile length at one point, but it is unlikely! All of the development has made it into a very desirable area, as the expansion and urbanisations carefully monitors and planned, with no high rise buildings being allowed to be constructed anywhere near shoreline and very few anywhere in sight in fact. That is why it is such a popular region to purchase home or take a holiday. To make it easier to discuss the are generally it is split into two physical places: the hillside area, which is the area on the hillside of the main N340 road and the beach side, which is on the beach side of the same road.
