This is one of the better known residential zones in the Estepona area. It sits on the New Golden Mile, and because it is a mature community, it has established an enviable number of amenities in the vicinity, which is one of its attractions.
In terms of properties, it has everything from grand mansions to studio apartments, plus architectural styles that range from the traditional Mediterranean to the modern. Many apartments here have large roof terraces with BBQ areas, some have private gardens and of course, all the various urbanisations within the area have well kept communal gardens and pools. The diversity of property styles is yet another attractive element in addition to the views of the sea and mountains that residents enjoy thanks to El Paraiso’s elevated position.
Another of El Paraiso’s great attractions is its golf course. The El Paraiso Golf Club is one of the oldest courses on the Costa del Sol and is designed by golf legend Gary Player. The fairways are surrounded by pine trees and sweep around two lakes, making it one of the most beautiful and tranquil courses in the area. A very friendly club with a vibrant social life, it attracts a range of players with different handicaps with everyone being made to feel welcome.

It also has several restaurants and bars in both Benavista and El Pilar, which are thought of as part of El Paraiso, as well as a Supercor convenience store and two English butchers. Los Arcos bar has a playground for children and across the road in Benamara, Funky Forest is another popular place for parents to meet while the children play. El Paraiso also has an International School for three to eleven-year-olds with schools for older children within a few minutes drive.
