San Pedro Beachside
San Pedro is a place on the up. For several years it was the scene of roadworks but now, with a convenient underpass and a fresh new park and public spaces, it ranks as one of the hot new areas on the Costa del Sol.
Property on San Pedro’s beachside is particularly popular. For many years cut off from the main town by several lanes of traffic, this area is experiencing of a renaissance. Not only can you take a relaxed stroll from the beach to the restaurants in the main town, but you can now also amble around a new park and gardens built to unite the two areas, complete with a funky undulating bridge that spans the entire leisure zone.
On its own, the beachside has much to offer – superb frontline beach restaurants, charming chiringuito bars, beach clubs, trendy cafés, fashionable boutiques and a thriving racquet club to name but a few, with new businesses opening every week.
The comfortable mix of mature and new apartment and townhouse complexes for which the area is known ensures that there is something to suit every taste and budget. With properties starting at €155.000, one of several brand new luxury developments in San Pedro beach is offering one and two bedroom apartments on a serviced resort basis, providing housekeeping and medical treatments as required. There’s also a healthy restaurant onsite as well as security, pool, gardens, gym, spa and concierge.
Those partial to sea views will appreciate the amazing outlook from the terrace of this three bedroom duplex penthouse, which overlooks the Paseo Marítimo (promenade) and beautiful sandy beach below. Although the apartment is very generously proportioned inside, it is the 182m2 of terraces (complete with bubbling Jacuzzi from where you can admire the glistening Mediterranean) that really gives it the wow factor. Perfect for entertaining, dining or relaxing with an early evening cocktail while the sun goes down.

Although in need of some refurbishment, this excellent value four-bedroom villa is south facing and ideally located if you like to regularly pop out for an enjoyable dinner somewhere nearby.
