Situated midway between the villages of Castillo de la Duquesa and San Luis de Sabinillas is the marina complex of Puerto de la Duquesa. This picturesque port of Duquesa has been awarded the FEE Blue Flag for the quality of its facilities and surroundings, a fact easily understood when you pay it a visit.
Duquesa Port is a working marina and is used by both pleasure craft and the local fishermen, who can be seen landing their catch most days. For those of you who want to take to the water there are a number of options available in the way of boat rides, dolphin spotting, fishing trips, etc., along with a fully RYA qualified sea school providing courses for both sailing and motor vessels and a dive school.
Duquesa’s harbourside is lined with numerous bars and restaurants representing cuisine from a host of countries, including Indian, Italian, Mexican, Italian, Chinese, UK and Ireland, and of course Spain. Whether a quiet cafe where you can sit and watch the world go by, or a lively sports bar showing the latest match or golf tournament, there is something for everyone in Puerto de la Duquesa.
Apart from the bars, cafes and restaurants there are number of shops, boutiques, jewellers, etc. as well as a gym, hairdressers, bank, estate agents and leisure activity providers, making Puerto de la Duquesa a village in its own right.
For those of you who like to hit the beach, Puerto de la Duquesa is flanked either side by beautiful sandy beaches which, even at the height of summer, are never overcrowded.
Accommodation is available in the Port, with a wide range of apartments available in the port itself or close by, or why not book into one of the hotels also available within walking distance, such as the 5-star Hotel Suites Duquesa Golf.
