About the area

Duquesa port offers an unequalled quality of life on the Costa del Sol. It is just 2 minutes walk from the apartment and is one of Spain's best kept secrets.
The marina has more than 300 berths, and there are no high rise hotels here to spoil the view.
The blue flag beach stretches as far as Sabanillas and on to Estepona. On the other side, it winds around the coast to Sotogrande.

The waterfront is virtually closed to traffic making it very safe for children, and the attractive promenades encircling the port offer a variety of restaurants, intimate bars and cafés in which to while away the days.
The vast choice of eating and drinking options include French, Italian, Chinese, Indian, Thai and, of course, Spanish with its fresh, local fish. Numerous services and grocers are also on hand.

The village of Sabinillas is a 15 minute walk along the promenade. It is an authentic Spanish fishing village with a traditional selection of shops, bars and restaurants. Here you can witness the daily catch of the local fisherman as they bring their boats up the beach, or simply stroll along the pretty promenade, mingling with the locals and choosing in which restaurant to have lunch! A market is held here weekly and attracts visitors from far and wide. Sabinillas has a wonderful sandy beach which is never crowded, and affords views towards Gibraltar and on a clear day, Africa.

Andalucia has the best of everything to keep the most discerning visitor happy. The natural beauty of the area is enhanced by over 300 days of sun a year as well as lush green landscapes providing an abundance of recreational activities.

You also have the famous white village of Casares within 15 minutes and Puerto Banus (The playground of the rich and famous) 20 minutes away. Day trips to Morocco, Gibraltar, Jerez, Ronda and Granada are all highly recommended.

Puerto de la Duquesa has all the benefits of being situated on the Costa del Sol, close to the ever popular areas of Fuengirola, Marbella, Estepona, Sotogrande, Casares, Puerto Banus (the playground of the rich and famous), Gibraltar, Jerez, Ronda and Grenada. This region also provides plenty for the children - with a wide choice of fun days out including Safari Parks, Water Parks, Dolphin Safari's and many other theme parks within a 45 minute drive to keep them amused.

Golf in Andalucia & the Puerto Duquesa region

The region also boasts over 40 championship golf courses within one hours drive of Duquesa including Valderrama, Estepona, San Roque and Sotogrande which are less than 15 minutes drive away. The Robert Trent Jones championship course at the Duquesa Golf and Country Club is just across the road from the marina - about 0.5km.

With excellent golfing facilities in the locality, we will be pleased to arrange golfing parties and golfing breaks, and with our flexibility around dates you can be sure to find that we can accommodate a break that will suit your requirements.
