San Pedro de Alcántara is in an ideal situation, just 10 km west from all the glitz and glamour of Marbella, yet just a few minutes’ drive away from the natural beauty of the Sierra de Ronda mountain range and 20 km from the town of Estepona. An ancient farming community, once famous for sugar cane, today San Pedro is a refreshingly unspoilt pueblo with an appeal all of its own. Be sure to head for the central plaza here with its gracious parish church and surrounding narrow streets which are packed with intriguing small shops, sidewalk cafes and bars. Thursday is street market day with all the associated hustle and bustle; a veritable bargain shopper’s paradise. At the lower end of Avenida Maeques del Duero sitting on top of the main coast road (in a 3km underpass) is the Boulevard park. A pleasant walk is from the centre of town to the beachfront where you will find a modern wide promenade ideal for continuing your stroll with several excellent chiringuitos, specialising in fish dishes. Visit Bora Bora if only for a drink at the bar. It is one of the best beach clubs on the coast, with a superb restaurant and all the usual beach facilities, a tropical paradise.
