TOURIST GUIDE TO THE

COSTA DEL SOL

PUERTO DUQUESA

Puerto de la Duquesa is located in the south of Spain, Costa del sol within the

district of Manilva.  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 cafés.

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.

ESTEPONA

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

identity.

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  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

and food.

MARBELLA

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

mountain range.

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 Señora De La Encarnacion Church" is the most important

building in the old town centre. The main façade of the building is adorned with

a beautiful red stone portal worked in baroque style.beautiful red stone portal

“A wonderful place to base yourself for Costa DEL sol adventures”

Reviewed 30 Jun 2016

Brilliant communications from the owner, including excellent road directions which meant we arrived completely stress free. On arrival we were shown around and how everything worked which was really helpful. The apartment was spacious and lovely & clean. And very secure within a complex. We quickly inspected the pool which was a decent size with lots of sun beds - really quiet, most times we had it to ourselves, and the views from the pool are lovely. We walked to the local beach most mornings, usually stopping at one of the plentiful bars for a coffee on the way back. The central location was ideal for exploring Gib, Ronda, Algeciras, Estepona, Marbella and Benalmedena. If you love hill walking or beaches your dreams can come true in this area, it's stunning! There are loads of supermarkets close by. You do need a car, but the road a7 is really really easy to drive and navigate. We mostly ate in either Sabinillas or Puerto de la Duquesa, both lovely, but if on a budget the facilities in the apartment were grand for cooking meals. I'd highly recommend for any couple, family, friends who are happy and content without hoardes of people around. This was a truly relaxing and very pleasant stay made brilliant by such a nice apartment and friendly, communicative owner

“Perfect apartment for relaxing holiday and good central location for sightseeing”

Reviewed 21 Jun 2012

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.
