San Pedro

San Pedro Alcantara is located in an ideal part of the coast, between Marbella, a 10 minute drive away, the natural beauty of the Sierra de Ronda mountain range and the popular town of Estepona. San Pedro retains much of its original farming community charm – it was once famous for sugar cane – and still has a small-town, friendly feel.

Nueva Alcántara

Nueva Alcántara is the beach side area by San Pedro, which is home to a great deal of new development. This thriving area houses shops, restaurants, hotels and property aplenty.

Historical San Pedro

The Paleochritian Balisilica Church and Necropolis can be found in the woods next to the Bora Bora Beach Club, on the sea front directly infront of the town. A little further west along the beach to Guadalmina you will find the restored remains of the ancient Roman Baths. To get there, head westward towards Estepona from San Pedro, stopping at the tourist office in the Arch for the keys. Then head down to the sea and you will find Roman baths located next to the Guadlamina Beach Club.
