TOURIST GUIDE TO THE
COSTA DEL SOL
Puerto de la Duquesa is located in the south of Spain, Costa del sol within the
district of Manilva. Â Its location makes it one of the most popular places to visit.
It can be reached either from Gibraltar airport which is a mere 30 minutes away
or Malaga about an hour drive.
Puerto De La Duquesa is a cosmopolitan port and resort, with its superb 360
berth yacht marina and is regarded as one of the best zones on the south
coast, with a privileged all year round climate, sandy beaches and unspoilt
natural scenery. La Duquesa also offers all the amenities to ensure a
comfortable and secure environment.
The port has full marina services with a variety of restaurants, bars and cafÃ©s.
The numerous restaurants around the district enable one to choose national
and international cuisine served alongside some traditional dishes.
Most pubs like Ryder's, Hemingway's and the Penguin are the meeting points of
regulars. Fancy a bit of Tapas, La Taberna has a wide selection of cured Ham,
olives, cheeses and many more. There are about four Chinese restaurants as
well, and one that is worth mentioning is "The Slow Boat to China". They will
serve you with a smile, keep your kids occupied and would even deliver your
meal to your apartment! Fancy a pizza? Well Il Capitano has just what you
need from pizzas to pasta, meats and even seafood.
Next to Puerto de la Duquesa are the Spanish villages of Sabinillas and El
Castillo. They represent the typical "pueblo" image where everybody is related
to everybody. For your food shopping, Sabinillas is the place to go with its three
supermarkets, Mercadona and Supersol on the main N340 dual carriage way
and another Supersol on the Manilva road just off the main roundabout and
where parking isn't an issue! Mercadona is worth going to. Its large selection of
fresh fish, meat and vegetables makes it a popular place to shop. Most
supermarkets are open between 9am and 9pm.
The Sunday morning market (El Rastrillo) is well worth a browse. Held on an
open area just off the N-340 main road, you can find great bargains in antiques,
pottery and second hand goods. There is also a Friday market, which is mainly
food and clothes.
Located in the Costa Del Sol, Estepona is one of the few coastal towns that
have succeeded in maintaining its pueblo charm and character despite the
spectacular growth it has enjoyed over the years. Only 15 minutes away from
the famous Puerto Banus in Marbella, the town still remains unspoiled and
future development is carefully planned to ensure the preservation of its
Estepona was originally a Roman settlement. It however, preserves the
remains of Moorish fortifications, watchtowers and an 18th century parish
church. The townâ??s modern name is probably derived from the Moorish
Astabbuna. Nevertheless, nobody really knows when the town was founded. It
is assumed that Estepona existed a lot earlier than the Moorish epoch but as
the Arabs settled in this region the longest, they have left numerous reminders
of their culture of which very few monuments have unfortunately been saved.
Estepona history has only been recorded since 1457, when Enrique IV of
Castile reclaimed it from the Moors. A visit to the old town where monuments
like the clock tower and the watchtowers are still remaining is well worth it.
Estepona has also the well-equipped marina. Located at the West End of the
Paseo Maritimo, it is a great place for a stroll. There are also a variety of tapas
bars and restaurants; a selection of international cuisine; but above all, it has
excellent fish restaurants that provide a stunning array of local dishes. The
marina is also the place to be after midnight. In summer time, the port comes
alive, with its numerous bars and clubs that are open till dawn. Reinaldo is a
popular and favourite meeting place. The clientele tend to be regular and the
music excellent. It is open everyday from midday until dawn. Chico diez is one of
the liveliest and Attico the place to be at the moment.
Estepona port also hosts a car boot sale (Rastrillo) on Sunday morning and an
open-air market every Wednesday in the â??Avenida Juan Carlosâ?? which are well
worth a visit Â The market and car boot sale are usually in the morning starting
at around 8am until 1pm and offering everything from souvenirs to rugs, clothes
from Malaga airport, Marbella is one of the Mediterranean coasts most
representative tourist venues. Considered unofficially as the capital of the
Costa Del Sol, this cosmopolitan town with luxury and simplicity living side by
side, has an impressive infrastructure of hotels, yacht harbours, a unique
historic environment and a privileged climate protected by the Sierra Blanca
It is mostly for its sunny climate and sandy beaches that Marbella is best known
and most importantly its jet set lifestyle that has attracted the rich and famous
to its shores particularly with the development of Puerto Banus, the worldâ??s
most famous port.
The truly rich donâ??t stay in Marbella itself. They lie around, on phenomenally
large and luxurious yachts at the marina of Puerto Banus which hosts inside its
installations 915 berths.
This famous marina located next to San Pedro De Alcantara and minutes drive
from Marbella town centre has been the main attraction of the city and in the
last decade has grown continuously turning it into the best Marina in Europe.
Today, it is filled with luxurious shops such as Hermes, Cartier, Versace, one of
the best department stores in Spain (El Corte Ingles), a shopping centre, a
casino, numerous bars, bistros and restaurants offering everything from simple
tapas and pizzas to lobster, caviar and champagne.
Puerto Banus is well worth a visit. Take a stroll in the port and check out the
yachts, you will not believe the size of some of these yachts, some about the
size of a small ferry.
It is for its sunny climate, sandy beaches and luxury lifestyle that Marbella is
best known, but the city is full of history found in every street corner where
numerous monuments bear witness to every civilisation that has occupied it.
Its origins dates all the way back to Roman times from which abundant remains
are to be found. The Rio Verde Roman villa and the Guadalmina thermal baths
are few discoveries of this past civilisation.
Under the Moors, Marbella prospered. During their period they turned it into a
walled in city, building a castle and surrounding the city with a moat with just
three entrances: from the sea, from Ronda and from Malaga. The castle walls
remains today but the moat and the doors have disappeared.
In 1485, when the Catholics Monarchs Isabella and Ferdinand De Castile came
into power, they changed its name to Marbella (beautiful sea). In the old town
centre, our lady's church, the chief magistrate house and St John's hospital
were all built during the Christian re-conquest. During this period and
throughout the 16th century, the urban structure of the town underwent
important changes. The centre of the Muslim Medina (today the old town) was
demolished to open the square (today the famous Orange Square) and a new
street (Calle Nueva) in order to communicate the square with the Puerto Del
Mar (Sea entrance).
Surrounded by "El Kasbah wall" the ruins of an Arab castle and narrow white
washed streets, the square has almost remained unchanged since the 16th
century.It was built after Marbella was re-conquered from the Moors in 1485
and was to become the administrative centre of the city. It is also home to the
16th century Town Hall and tourist office. "Ermita de Santiago", also in the
Orange square is the most ancient religious monument in the city dating back to
the 15th century right after the re-conquest of Marbella. "The Chief magistrate
house" dating back to 1552 and situated to the left of the townhall is another
monument to visit. In the and situated to the left of the townhall is another
monument to visit. In the "San Juan De Dios chapel", one can see the mixture of
cultures. In this Christian building, ordered to be built by the Catholic Kings, we
can still find Christian building, ordered to be built by the Catholic Kings, we can
still find proof of the fact that this land once belonged to the Kingdom of
Granada. "Nuestra SeÃ±ora De La Encarnacion Church" is the most important
building in the old town centre. The main faÃ§ade of the building is adorned with
a beautiful red stone portal worked in baroque style.beautiful red stone portal

“Perfect apartment for relaxing holiday and good central location for sightseeing”
Our stay was managed excellently. The apartment upon arrival was clean, tidy and well presented. Fresh towells and beds made up with fresh linen. Welcome grocery packs were available if requested but we were happy without as stayed in this apartment previously and know all the local amenities. Great position for local supermarkets short drive/walk away. Some great bars located nearby, especially the beach bar at the bottom of the hill for seafood and a fab family bar half way down the hill to the left which has a small childrens play area and an ampitheatre which hosts live music, great atmosphere. The use of the communal pool has fantastic views of either the mountains and the sea. There is also a small childrens pool in the same area. We felt very happy for the smallest child to play safely. The pool area is fenced and very secure as entrance is via a key fob. The location of the apartment is superb. Can either be accessed via a hire car or alternatively local buses and taxis. Great if you want to visit the local area such as Casares in the mountains which is full of spanish charm and tradition. Or alternatively visit Gibraltor which is 40 minute drive or for a night out with the rich and famous visit Peurto Banus is only 30 mins away. Is great for looking at the luxury yachts and super cars. Also visit Estapona which is about 10 min drive away. Lovely beach and very big supermarkets such as Carrefour. The port of Ducasia is only 5 mins down the road and has great restaurants and bars. We would highly recommend this apartment.
