For uncovering the authentic side of Spain, San Pedro de Alcantara is right where you want to be. Its Plaza de la Iglesia is a striking showstopper with a staggering church and local flavour, just a few kilometres inland from the graceful, golden coastline. You’ll feel totally at ease.
Spacious and sandy
Oh, what a coastline! There are three beaches for you to choose from, running along the same stretch of sumptuously sandy shoreline. The most popular is the Playa San Pedro de Alcantara. It flies the Blue Flag for its cleanliness and safety, and it’s lined with a scenic promenade, too.
The resort shares the Roman heritage of the trail that runs from Cartagena to Cádiz. You’ll see how this plays out at Las Bóvedas, a weatherworn arched structure which was once Roman Baths. The ruins of La Basilica de Vega del Mar has one of the oldest tombstones in Spain.
