Very clean and tidy apartment close to all amenities

  • 5 of 5

Unfortunately the weather was unusually wet on my weeks visit. However the apartment was in excellent order and very clean and tidy. Everything required for comfort was available and the fact the apartment was only a 5 minute walk to the port for food and drink was a huge bonus considering the weather

Lovely little apartment

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a last minute half term holiday break. The weather waqs much better than we had hoped for - warm and sunny every day. The apartment was just as described and very well equuipped for our family of four. It was great to be able to step out of the complex straight onto the beach! Only a few minutes to walk to the marina with its restaurants and bars. There was a small supermarket and a couple of ATMS nearby. The staff in the local office were very helpful.

From the Owner

A fabulous holiday location with barefoot access to a quality marked beach, and right next to the picturesque old Duquesa marina.

Activity and Interests

Car: not necessary


Duquesa Port is one of Spain's best kept secrets. Attractive promenades encircling the marina of gently bobbing boats offer a variety of restaurants, bars and cafés in which to while away the hours.

The waterfront is closed to traffic, making it safe for families and free from pollution.

To either side of the port are lovely sandy beaches which never get crowded, both of which have beach bars open during the summer months.


The nearest airports are Malaga and Gibraltar.

From the airport you may choose to take one of the many available taxis to the apartment.

Alternatively you may wish to drive directly to the apartment.

From Malaga airport the apartment is around 45 minutes drive on the local motorway, and from Gibraltar airport it is a 30 minute drive. Car hire can be arranged from the airport through one of the many car hire companies with airport offices.


Sabinillas is a 5 minute walk along the beach. It is an authentic Spanish fishing village, with a traditional selection of shops, bars and restaurants.

Andalucia is famous for its white villages, nestled in the surrounding hills and mountains. The closest of these, Casares, is a 20 minute drive through the countryside, and makes a great location for lunch while you admire the breathtaking views.

Further Details:

British owned Gibraltar is an alternative day trip, with its VAT free prices, spectacular scenery and the only native monkey colony in Europe. Just 30 minutes drive away, first time visitors will be pleasantly surprised with the diverse range of attractions on offer in Gibraltar.

Steeped in history that has evolved from its strategic location at the southernmost tip of the Iberian Peninsula where Europe meets Africa, visitors are assured of breathtaking scenery, wildlife and architecture that captures the unique flavour of this Mediterranean City and its inhabitants.

As a VAT-free jurisdiction, Gibraltar's popularity with visitors is enhanced by its value added shopping experience in famed Main Street. Gibraltar also offers a wide range of activities including rock touring (see the apes), sailing, diving, fishing and bird watching.

Just before Marbella, approaching from La Duquesa, is the international resort of Puerto Banus with its millionaire playground of floating palaces and luxury cars. In addition to the yachts, the port is chock full of all the appropriate designer names such as Versace, Armani, Jimmy Choo, Chloe, Louis Vuitton and Donna Karen ­for the most discerning shoppers.

Cosmopolitan Life can be found only 20 minutes away in the "jet-set" city of Marbella with its hustle and bustle. Visit at night to experience the famous bustling night life in the numerous bars and clubs, or try your luck on the roulette wheel at the celebrity frequented casino.

Shopping experiences of every kind are available ranging from the upscale El Corte Inglés, Spain's premier department store, to the sprawling La Cañada mall just outside Marbella, to the infinite variety of small shops and boutiques lining the cobble-stoned streets of Old Marbella.

You may want to consider taking day trips to the following: Morocco in Africa (Tangier, Casablanca, Marrakech), Algeciras, Granada, Seville, or skiing 2 to 3 hours drive away in the Sierra Nevada mountains.
