“My favourite place in Spain”
Reviewed May 28, 2008

We bought an apartment in Alcaidesa last year and it has been fantastic. The area is lovely, on the Costa Del Sol (about 1 hour drive to Marbella) but still very Spanish.

The beach is very special with white sands for miles. You can walk all the way to Gibraltar - we did it!! The only sunbeds are just next to the beach bar in Alcaidesa, apart from those you only see a scattering of Spanish families that come to the beach after the siesta.

The beach bar cook all their food on the charcoal BBQ. It really is first class!

Alcaidesa is also superb for golf. The Alcaidesa Links golf course is the only Links course in Andalucia and the newly opened Heathlands course is "championship standard" - very challenging!

Apart from Golf and beach there is all the culture and possibility for activities round about. Gibraltar is 15 min drive away and if you fancy kitesurfing/surfing Tarifa is about 25 min drive. Not to mention all the nice places along the Costa del Sol.
