This long beach stretches almost endlessly towards the Rock of Gibraltar and is located next to the luxurious Sotogrande Costa residential area. The first part of the beach is situated by the mouth of the Guadiaro River and ends near the Torrecarbonera lighthouse. As you leave Sotogrande behind, the beach is almost deserted and wild.
This beach is located near El Octógono Beach & Tennis Club, within the Sotogrande Port & Marina and is considered to be an urban beach. Various bars and restaurants are available nearby, as well as beach bars.
Cala Sardina, also known as Playa el Cabrero o Cala Taraje, is a pristine beach with dark sand located in a cove. As it so happens, a scene from the American comedy movie “Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo” was shot on location here.
This is an almost natural rustic beach that has been awarded Blue Flag status by virtue of its clean waters, which also give it its nickname "The Resort". Alcaidesa beach also has an official nudist area.
The project to create a marina was being planned from the very beginning of the resort, however it would only be opened in July 1987. Adminsitrative concessions from the state were requested in order to create the Sotogrande Port Supervisory Body and construct the first buildings and moorings. Juan Miguel Villar Mir (ex Finance and Public administration minister of the first post-Franco democratic government of Spain) and the head engineer, José Cano, spearheaded the project. From the early days of Sotogrande, the idea of building a "Mini Venice" - a marina with artificial islands - was being discussed and it was with this goal that Sotogrande S.A purchased the suitable land on the left bank of the Guadiaro estuary. In the early 1990s the decision was taken to build a small lakeside town with luxury apartments nestled on islands and riverbanks, which is what can now be appreciated in the Marina area.
