More about San Pedro de Alcántara
Properties for sale in San Pedro de Alcántara are located just a few kilometres
west of Puerto Banús, in a quieter and less expensive neighbourhood than many of its glitzy
neighbours. Starting out life as a farming colony, founded by workers from western Spain in the
19th century, San Pedro was once famous for its sugarcane plantations. Some of the original
buildings of the sugarcane cooperative are still standing today.
San Pedro is, above all, known as a lively little Spanish town on the outskirts of Marbella that
has a unique, charming character, which is fast making it a fashionable place to live. Unlike its
siblings – Puerto Banús and Marbella – it has the feel of a town rather than a resort and
there are plenty of apartments and houses for sale in San Pedro de Alcántara to
San Pedro’s old town is typically Andalusian, with narrow streets lined with whitewashed houses,
traditional bars and orange trees, as well as a pretty parish church and intriguing small shops.
San Pedro also boasts the last summer fair (feria) in Andalucía, which normally takes place during
the second week of October and is a lively event. While some foreign residents prefer to immerse
themselves in the hustle and bustle of San Pedro’s town centre, most opt for a house, villa or
property in the peaceful residential areas on its periphery.
Here you will find modern townhouses and apartments for sale, as well as luxury villas set in
quiet, leafy streets bordering the exclusive neighbourhood of Guadalmina. Those looking for great
value for money would be well advised to consider this part of San Pedro, while the beachfront
area of Nueva Alcántara is of particular interest to those seeking medium-term investment
Here too there are modern apartments lining broad avenues, designed with parks, pedestrian paths
and cycling tracks, all of which lead to the beach. From the centre of San Pedro town, it’s
possible to take a scenic walk down to the seafront along the Avenida Marques del Duero, a wide
avenue lined by palm trees. On the beachfront – little more than a kilometer from San Pedro itself
– there is a beautiful, wide Paseo Marítimo (promenade) framed by palm trees and dotted with bars,
chiringuitos (beachside restaurants), and plenty of places to rent water sports equipment.
Historians may also want to visit the third-century remains of the Roman Baths in the tranquil
residential area just behind Bora Bora beach club.
With the completion of the San Pedro bypass tunnel, work has now started on the creation of a
beautiful park above it, and already the area is filling up with restaurants, cafés and shops. All
of this is making San Pedro an up and coming place with a lot of potential for mid-term investment
opportunities. Moreover, the area between the town of San Pedro and the beachfront is a natural
point for development in the coming years, when the area will be gradually consolidated.
Well-respected developers are constructing highly attractive apartments in an ideal, green
residential setting between the town and beach and there is likely to be an influx in the number
