Discover San Pedro on your next holiday
Along Spain’s famous Costa del Sol, just ten kilometres from Marbella is the charming Andalucian town of San Pedro De Alcantara. Visitors can enjoy a relaxed break in a traditional Andalucian setting, while still being close to the bright lights and excitement of nearby Marbella. It takes just over two hours' flying time from most UK cities and an hour’s transfer from either Malaga or Gibraltar airports to reach San Pedro De Alcantara.
Beach holidays in San Pedro
The town’s central plaza is a hub of activity with an impressive parish church and pleasant cafes dotted around the square. For a bit of retail therapy, you can spend your day roaming the town’s character-filled narrow streets, with Thursdays being market day, where you can pick up a bargain or two.
Sun worshippers and nature lovers should head to San Pedro De Alcantara’s beach, which is fringed by palm trees with soft silky sand and the inviting waters of the Mediterranean Sea. Energetic types can enjoy the water sports on offer including diving, fishing and surfing. If you prefer to sit back and take in the sea views, the town’s beachfront Avenida del Marques del Duero has a wonderful selection of restaurants, many specialising in seafood.
If lazing by the beach and eating delicious food all gets a bit too much, there are some interesting historical monuments close by. The 4th century church, Basilica de Vega del Mar, overlooks the sea and the nearby 3rd century Roman baths, Las Bovedas, should impress even the most discerning of history buffs.
The resort also plays host to the last Andalucian festival of the summer. This takes place in the second week of October, which includes a bull fight to celebrate local Iberian culture.
