Things to Do in Sotogrande

Sotogrande, in the province of Cadiz, is a resort for sports and luxury estates. Over the 2,500 hectares of Sotogrande, you can find the Valderrama Golf Course - famous for hosting the Ryder Cup in the 90s, the pristine Costa de la Luz beaches and a selection of stylish restaurants and bars. This area is a golfer's paradise with other courses nearby including the Real Club de Golf Sotogrande, San Roque Club, Almenara golf and La Canada Golf.

Besides golf, tourists make the trip to Sotogrande to play or watch polo. Annually, El Torneo Internacional (polo event) is held in August, which attracts the rich and elite to the area.

Sotogrande's most impressive facet is almost certainly its marina. The fleet of prized yachts and sailboats make the place look picturesque against the coloured buildings of Sotogrande, and a heliport, gymnasium and sauna facilities add a welcome dose of luxury to this stylish area. Since Sotogrande is a popular stopover point for the sailing set, the marina can be a fun place to quietly observe the various yachts and characters that trundle through.

The port's nightlife is often lively, with a number of restaurants and bars that overlook the marina. In the summer, beach clubs open their doors to the summer crowds too.

Sotogrande's location makes it ideal for day trips to nearby destinations. For a more antique Andalucian flavour, you could head to San Roque and wind down among the traditional whitewashed houses and narrow streets, discovering historical monuments or just relaxing in a quiet café whilst immersing yourself in the Andalucian culture.

Alternatively, you can make the short trip to Gibraltar, commonly known as 'The Rock'. Still owned by the British, you can find English stores such as Marks & Spencer and Next, and be served up a plate of fish, chips and mushy peas!
