San Pedro Information

San Pedro de Alcantara was originally designed as a dormitory village for the workers of Marbella. This town, placed in the middle of a farming community, developed a life of its own and has grown into the prosperous area it is today.


Ten kilometres west from all the glitz and glamour of Marbella lies the village of San Pedro de Alcantara. This well situated town is only a short drive from the natural beauty of the Sierra de Ronda mountain range and 20 km from the fishing community of Estepona.

San Pedro was an ancient farming community, famous for sugar cane and today it is a refreshingly unspoilt pueblo with an appeal all of its own. Be sure to head for the central plaza with its gracious parish church and surrounding narrow streets packed with intriguing small shops, sidewalk cafes and bars. On Thursdays, visit the street market, a veritable bargain shopper’s paradise.

It is a pleasant walk from the town centre to the beachfront along the Avenida del Marques del Duero, an attractive wide avenue flanked by palm trees. The modern promenade is an ideal place for continuing your stroll with several excellent chiringuitos (beachside restaurants) specialising in fish dishes.

Visit Bora Bora if only for a drink at the bar - it is one of the best beach clubs on the coast with a superb restaurant and all the usual beach facilities. It is built in Polynesian style with thatched roofs and large wicker chairs.

History buffs will enjoy the Palaeochristian Basilica by the sea and the third century Roman Baths, Las Bovedas. The Church and Necropolis are located in the woods next to the Bora Bora Club on the seafront. A little further west along the beach, near Guadalmina, the restored remains of the Roman Baths are located. Check at the local tourist office for opening times.

San Pedro has the last summer feria (fair) in Andalucia, in the second week of October. Here you will meet your friends from all along the coast as they gather to say goodbye to the summer.
