The City of San Roque is set in the Strait of Gibraltar, next to the mythical Pillars of Hercules, in the southernmost point on the Iberian Peninsula. It is a crossroads where diverse cultures have intermingled. The Historic Centre of San Roque is a conservation area (a collection of historical listed buildings), as well as traditional festivities such as Holy Week (an Event of Andalusian Tourist Interest) and the Royal Fair, add up to a large number of tourist facilities the borough boasts, accounting for the importance and charm of one of the most singular locations in the province of Cadiz and Andalusia

The borough of San Roque offers visitors a wide range of tourist facilities including 9 golf courses, 9 polo grounds, the Sotogrande Marina and exclusive private resorts such as Sotogrande, San Roque Club or Alcaidesa. There are also nature spots and countless tourist businesses.

Lastly, San Roque possesses excellent communications, just a quarter of an hour’s drive from Gibraltar Airport and Algeciras Port, with regular ferries and catamarans to the Spanish city of Ceuta and the Moroccan city of Tangiers and also, just half an hour away is the Costa del Sol on the dual carriageway. And everything else is just a stone throw away, you can get from San Roque to any place you like, just an hour away from Malaga-Costa del Sol International Airport and AVE high-speed train station along AP-7 toll motorway or A-7 dual carriageway and an hour away from Jerez-Cadiz International Airport along the A-381 dual carriageway.
