San Pedro de Alcántara (St. Peter of Alcántara) lies on the main Costa del Sol coastal road the as well as the new toll motorway the AP7, 10 km west of Marbella in Andalucia, Southern Spain. It is easily accessed from either Málaga or Cádiz and Sevilla and Ronda. The nearest airports of Málaga and Gibraltar are both within an hour’s drive. It is situated in the fertile plain of the same name, Vega de San Pedro Alcántara, a broad stretch of coastal lowland surrounded in a semicircle by rugged hills. On the East the Sierra Blanca of Marbella.
As you enter San Pedro, through the entrance arch from the Cádiz direction, you find what is probably the most typical Spanish town left on the Costa del Sol, kept very clean with a central shopping area, quiet parks and squares and beautiful gardens. Turn right off the main road to the Nueva Alcántara area and you reach the very long, newly constructed promenade and the long, wide beaches, where there are many new developments taking shape.
