Things To Do on San Pedro Holidays

There is much to see and do on San Pedro holidays. Bargain hunters will be spoilt for choice, with the weekly market day in the central Plaza offering a wealth of locally items sold by traditional Spanish market vendors. The main promenade, Avenida del Marques del Duero, is especially beautiful, flanked on both sides by tall palm trees and offering lovely walks along the beachfronts. There are many outstanding chiringuitos, or beachfront eateries, to sample the fish specialties.

There are also a number of historical sites to visit, including the Paleo-Christian Basilica Church and the Roman Baths, Las Bovedas. The beaches are also famed for their cleanliness and variety of things to do, including windsurfing, scuba diving and sailing Ð in addition to good old-fashioned sunbathing, of course!


Unmistakably Mediterranean, San Pedro retains much of its heritage as a small fishing port. The weekly market is uniquely Spanish, and even a casual walk around offers glimpses of how life in Spain used to be; charming villas and architecture, friendly locals and great food.


San Pedro has many charming and authentically local bars all within easy reach of the central Plaza, and all are an easy walk from each other, perfect for sampling the local wines and specialty cocktails. Many bars also serve traditional tapas and other bar snacks, meaning a night out can easily turn into a satisfying meal and vice versa!

Should you wish to go out for a more exciting night on the town then head into nearby Marbella or Puerto Banus; both towns have myriad restaurants, bars and glitzy nightlife!
