Sotogrande Introduction

Sotogrande is the largest privately owned development in Andalucía measuring eight square miles. It is a very popular upmarket resort that owes its reputation to the meticulous planning of its creator in the nineteen sixties. It is the first port in the Mediterranean, eighteen miles east of Gibraltar, in an area of great natural beauty backed by the forested foothills of the Sierra Almenara. It is a peaceful resort based around a modern marina and surrounded by no less than three golf courses. It is a favourite resort for serious golfers and there are many other sporting facilities on site. The beach is excellent and offers a range of water based activities. The accommodation, the restaurants and the shopping facilities are all first class. A Sotogrande holiday offers relaxation in stunning surroundings that have been carefully planned for the comfort and the recreational needs of its visitors.

Why Go To Sotogrande?

There are many reasons for taking a Sotogrande holiday. Not least of these is the promise of glorious sunshine each and every day. A combination of sandy beaches, warm seas, water sports, a pretty marina, several golf courses, excellent restaurants and a relaxed atmosphere attract many visitors to Sotogrande every year.

Sotogrande is very popular with British tourists looking for an exclusive resort. It is a golfer’s paradise with championship courses on the doorstep. The beach is ideal for families with children.

When To Go To Sotogrande

With over three hundred days of sunshine every year a Sotogrande holiday can be enjoyed at any time. Although the summer months are very popular, many people choose to escape the cold, damp days of a British winter.

Sotogrande - The Place

Although Sotogrande continues to expand it remains an oasis of peace on the Costa del Sol. The architecture combines many styles but it is never brash or overwhelming, appearing to meld together into a tasteful whole. With palm trees lining wide avenues, acres of green space in gardens and on golf courses, Sotogrande exudes luxury. The marina is expanding and will soon have berths for over one thousand vessels. Sotogrande attracts many golfers owing to the proximity of several, including championship, courses. There are also good facilities for tennis and squash as well as stables for horse riding.

The long sandy beach is washed by clear blue waters and refreshments are provided by beach bars. Sailing and kayaking are available from the marina.

Sotogrande has a number of excellent restaurants serving haute cuisine with some of the best along the waterfront by the marina. There are shops on the complex for holiday essentials as well as gifts and souvenirs. There are markets twice weekly selling antiques and crafts. Looking out across the sea Morocco is clearly visible and many people take a ferry from Gibraltar to shop in the bazaars.

The nature reserve surrounding the resort has many guided walks with explanatory notice boards giving information on the flora and fauna of the estuary.

Sotogrande Nightlife

Sotogrande nightlife is very low-key where evenings are spent wandering along the waterfront enjoying a drink and a meal in the company of friends.

Sotogrande Shopping

Sotogrande has a number of shops providing holiday essentials as well as gift and souvenir shops. There is a craft and antiques market twice weekly where you can attempt to barter for your goods.

Sotogrande Eating

There are many excellent restaurants in Sotogrande, particularly along the waterfront, serving a wide variety of food from traditional fish dishes to international cuisine. A good way to sample Spanish food is to order a plate of tapas which consists of a medley of bite-sized dishes. Tapas are also ideal for filling the sometimes long gap between lunch and dinner, which is served later in Spain than at home.

Children are always made welcome, even in the most exclusive of restaurants, and their taste and portion size is usually accommodated.
