- Why Sotogrande?
Sotogrande is a luxury private resort, of about 2000 hectares and was built in 1962. Initially, Sotogrande was only a golf club, but later it grew into a community. It is located in the Spanish municipality of San Roque and is an hour’s drive from Malaga Airport and a 15-minute drive from Gibraltar Airport.
Because Sotogrande is relatively new, it has no real history. However, it is close to other villages so there is a lot to see and do in the nearby area.
Sotogrande is one of Spain’s most glamorous harbors. You can take a beautiful walk along the yachts moored here.
Sotogrande is also located in the middle of a nature park. The park is ideal for cycling, because there are several marked routes and bike rental points to find.
In nearby San Roque you can visit the Museo Luis Ortega Brú. Here you will find a large collection of sculptures of this artist who was born here.
