Property to rent La Duquesa


Duquesa, which is commonly known as Puerto de la Duquesa, is one of the Costa del Sol’s best kept secrets. This quaint village is within a forty minute travelling time of Malaga Airport, but it has the feel of being a traditional Spanish village, without the usual throng of tourists. People are attracted to Duquesa as it has a lot more natural scenery than other resorts found in the Costa del Sol. There are restrictions in place to prevent too many holiday developments from being built to keep the area manageable whilst providing all the services you would expect on holiday. The area to the west of the marina, known as Castillo de la Duquesa, was renowned for producing a paste known as “Garum” during the Roman period. The paste was made from fermented fish and was known as “Gentleman’s Relish”.

Main Tourist Attractions

One of the biggest attractions of Duquesa is its unspoilt, clean and uncrowded beaches. There is a beautiful long stretch of sand offering watersports, diving or just a chance to relax in the sun. The beach to the west of the town, near to the old castle, is popular with families as the waves are not as rugged; this makes it the perfect, quiet place to spend time with the children. Duquesa also offers a fantastic golf course and there are other leisure facilities such as tennis, badminton and a gym located at the Country Club. Lying to the west of the marina is the Castillo de la Duquesa, an 18th century fortress and small hamlet. Remains of the Roman settlement in this area can be viewed as well as the remains of a beautiful mosaic floor of a Roman bathhouse. For the energetic visitor, access to many trails can be found nearby, giving you a chance to explore the wonderful mountain scenery surrounding the town.

Shopping Opportunities

Duquesa retains its traditional charm whilst providing all the items you need to purchase whilst on holiday. There are several supermarkets and many small boutiques and family owned businesses to browse in and while away the hours. The local shops have many great gifts and souvenirs including local arts and crafts. There is an open air market and a car boot sale held every Saturday. Duquesa is also home to a unique craft market held twice a week at which attracts both locals and visitors to the town. For the serious shopper, Duquesa is located only twenty minutes from Marbella.

Eating out and Nightlife

There are many pubs, restaurants and cafés to be found in Duquesa. The marina, with its capacity to dock three hundred vessels, has many bars and restaurants situated at the water’s edge. Spanish cuisine, particularly seafood, can e found in abundance. The town also caters for many international flavours including Thai, French, British and Indian. Many of the bars have live entertainment and Duquesa is a vibrant location every night of the week.
