Alcaidesa is at the far western end of the Costa del Sol, far enough away from the main resorts to be peaceful and quiet and enjoys beautiful Mediterranean views and great beaches. The two kilometer stretch accompanying the village has earned blue flag status for meeting high standards regarding cleanliness and environmental friendliness.
The village square is located in the centre of Alcaidesa where local amenities include supermarket, pharmacy and bars/restaurants.
Next to the beach you have golf, covered by the Alcaidesa Golf Course. Over 18 holes, the Alcaidesa link-type course overlooks the Mediterranean and the rock of Gibraltar, offering the golfer a unique place to play. The physical conditions of the terrain are incorporated in the production and is a course where various professional tournaments have been held including the Junior Ryder Cup. You can also play at San Roque Golf Resort, Valderrama, Sotogrande and other golf courses within a short drive. A day trip to Gibraltar or the southern Costa de La Luz is very easy due to the quiet stretch of motorway all year round on this part of the coast.
