Unfold your new chapter in San Roque
Costa del Sol is said to be the costal paradise of the Mediterranean regions. It is home to numerous extraordinary cities, towns and villages to choose from. San Roque is no exception, a place chosen by many expats as their new home. Imagine traditional Spain: cobbled streets, clay tiles, white painted houses and an all round relaxed ambience everywhere.
San Roque is the last town in Costa del Sol region before reaching the international city of Gibraltar, only 20 minutes south. From Gibraltar you can catch a short ferry to the shores of Morroco and from their you can explore a completely different culture, full of colour and foreign smells. Further east you can easily reach popular hotspots like Marbella, Puerto Banus and Estepona.
If you’re looking for ultimate silence head to the nearby national park called Parque Natural Los Alcornocales for meditation and perhaps a pleasant picnic. It surely is an unspoilt region of the Costa del Sol to enjoy.
Another aspect of San Roque life is the notorious golf courses in the region, including the San Roque Golf Club which in fact hosted the Ryder Cup in 1997. To this day, the course still attracts some big players to play a good 18 hole game. It really is a golfer paradise here.
The old town brings new life in San Roque
One can find a lively nightlife in the town centre with tapas and cold beer in abundance. If you do however seek a more authentic Andalusian lifestyle, San Roque has excellent Andalusian restaurants with the finest local wine found in the main square. For which, brings you to the old town which brings a refined ambience to all the visit it’s stores and historical landmarks. We recommend heading to Poeta Domingo de Mena, a idyllic viewpoint of the Bay of Algeciras.
You can enjoy a good fiesta with locals at the annual celebrations that tend to sprout in the summer months. In San Roque, especially, there are so many ferias and festivals happening in this town. The most popular with the spaniards is the Royal Fair in August. Another large celebration is the Virgen del Carmen that takes place in July and for everyone it is an exceptional celebration to wait for.
