Great destination for all the family - AAA. Date of travel: Jul 2009
I own property in La Duquesa, and what L Craig is saying is utter rubbish, for 9 years my family and myself have gone to Duquesa every school holiday, so six times a year, for at least a week, spending eight weeks there every summer, and we have never got 'cabin fever', there is a good selection of restaurants and bars, and many cafes for lunch and breakfast, there are a couple of boutiques and shops. Duquesa is a great place, and unlike many other Spanish holiday locations has class, and attracts a high level of tourists. There is a golf course just a 2 minute walk away from the actual marina, and there is a selection of beaches which are never too crowded. There is lots to do in Duquesa, you can take part in a variety of water sports, you can even hire boats and go out to sea in a catamaran. The only down side to Duquesa, if there is one, is the lack of typical Spanish restaurants, there are only a couple, but the nearby towns of Sabinillas and Castillio are just a short walk away, and are both typically spanish, with a wide range of spanish resttaurants and bars, but also international restaurants. If you hire a car there are even more places to go and see, including Gibraltar, just a 20 minute drive away,nearby Casares, just a 5 minute drive away, and Estepona, Sotogrande, both 10 minute drives away, and of course Marbella, Puerto Banus and Malaga. Duquesa also has a bus stop located at the top of the port, meaning a regular bus runs all the way along the coast. Another must see tourist attraction only a five minute drive from Duquesa is in Sabinillas, the roman baths, built by Julius Ceasar, in the mountains, these are a great place to cool down in the summer heat and are free. It is great as there is a wide age range, ranging from families with young children and babies, families with teenagers, young adults and couples, and older couples, there really is something for everyone.
Pretty Puerto De La Duquesa - Alice Sellars. Date of travel: Feb 2009
Puerto De La Duquesa is a thousand miles away from other Spanish coastal resorts. It's quiet, pretty, and not packed full of British pubs and loud dance music. There's a beautiful harbour with plenty of lovely cafes/restaurants. We hired a car and took a drive to Marbella which is just 20 mins away. Also took a drive to the mountains for some real peace and quiet. Bliss!
Nothing special - L Craig. Date of travel: Jul 2007
Porto Duquesa is a great location for a few days but no more - cabin fever would prevail if you were to prolong your stay. Very few Spanish and very expat orientated Lovely beach, unfortunately beach bar insists on charging 4 for sunbeds, not expensive until you calculate the cost for a week for two!
Great for golf - Jim Smythe. Date of travel: May 2006
Great for golf
Puerto de la Duquesa one of the lesser-known resorts on Spain's Costa del Sol and has not yet been spoilt with high-rise hotels and an influx of package holiday makers. Puerto de la Duquesa is on the coast, between between Marbella and Gibraltar. It is 10km west of Estepona and about 7km from Sotogrande. It is less than one hours drive from Malaga airport and half an hour from Gibraltar. La Duquesa has a busy port area and marina and a number of shops and bars and a selection of restaurants. The resort has a nice sandy beach which goes on for miles. Many people visit Puerto de la Duquesa because of the excellent nearby golf courses including the Duquesa Golf and Country Club, a championship 18 hole Robert Trent Jones course.
