We enjoyed a day at the beach using il sono sunbeds and a lunch. We were charged €5 per person per bed which is the going rate apparently. Probably worth it if like us you prefer a sunbed. Maybe a little more attention should be...More

I don't know why I'm sharing out secret haven. We love the location and the restaurant is just wonderful. The most attentive friendly service and the excellent, fresh, straight forward food is perfectly prepared.

We had a glorious lunch at il Sono - a bustling chiringito with delicious food and superb staff. Attentive and charming staff. All the food we had was excellent. They also dealt with children very well.

A new concept of Beach Club in Cala Sardina, Torreguadiaro, a semi virgin beach in an idyllic setting, which may be considered the best and most beautiful beach in the area, only 3 minutes from Sotogrande. A space to relax, listen to good music, eat, drink, meet old and new friends, and feel like in the living room of your own home with amongst others wonderful views of the Rock of Gibraltar and North Africa. A different experience to sample day or night, relaxing and/or sunbathing on one of our hammocks. Our food is Mediterranean with an international flower but mostly healthy and natural, always fresh and of the highest quality. Health starts with us and ends with our clients feeling on top of the world. We offer a full menu at lunch and dinner.
