From Malaga to Cadiz, via Tarifa, there are 260 km of coastline where culture and nightlife are at home. And it is here that there is a very special place, which can rightly be defined as a “non-place”: it is not a town hall, it is not a city, it does not have an ancient history, but it does boast a record.

It belongs to the municipal territory of San Roque and borders with Manilva and the province of Malaga, La Linea de la Concepción and with Castellar de la Frontera. One of the features that makes it unique is the amazing panorama: in fact, it offers a privileged view of the African coast and of the entire Strait of Gibraltar, with the Towers of Hercules in the foreground. Sotogrande is a true oasis of greenery and tranquillity, developed around a delightful marina dotted with seaside restaurants and bars.
