The real beauty of this small slice of coastal Spain lies in its variety and the contrasts which exist in everyday life and nature.
Contrasts with the beautiful beaches and coastlines set against the dramatic backdrop of the mountains with their white villages and vineyards only a short drive away. Contrasts in lifestyle with the cosmopolitan style of Sotogrande Marina against the busy Spanish resorts of Torreguadiaro and Sabinillas.
The Sotogrande Marina and the inland urbanisation is a unique living environment quite unlike anywhere else in Spain. There is a sense of a more reserved opulence and more relaxed way of life compared to the likes of Marbella and Puerto Banus.
Duquesa is a bustling town with an international population. The marina has a definite ex-pat feel to it with football,cricket and rugby screened in the local bars and a mix of Chinese, Indian and Mexican restaurants making an interesting altenative to the seafood in the local beach bars.
Torreguadiaro is a sea front beach resort, with many seafood restaurants and Taps bars . The beaches are all Blue Flag and the busy resort is only a short walk into Sotogrande Marina. This is a busy year round place to live with friendly locals and beautiful beaches.
