San Luis De Sabinillas
Duquesa’s closest neighbour is the fishing village of Sabinillas, for years this sleepy enclave has remained untouched by tourism and has followed much the same pace of life as it did years ago, however over the last decade this has been changing and the town has been experiencing a bit of a transformation.
It is worth exploring the many alleyways and streets that lead to the leafy town square where you will find the Church of Santa Ana, which is the hub of Sabinillas.
The village has a beautiful promenade with its central bronze statue and a long stretch of sand that goes all the way back to Puerto De La Duquesa. You will find the blue flagged beach really family friendly with several childrens play areas which are all very safe.
There are a couple of authentic local seafood restaurants along the waterfront which are worth visiting, however you could do well by wandering around the town’s streets and alleyways where other restaurant’s are housed, these are just as good, less busy and a little cheaper than on the front.
There are two large supermarkets, a post office, pharmacy, tobacconists, banking facilities a large choice of cafes, as well as an English speaking doctor and dentist should you need one.
A market is held here twice weekly and attracts visitors from far and wide
The beauty of Sabinillas as with Duquesa is that you do not have the hustle and bustle of the bigger resorts further north, you can relax and take things at your own pace. Although this is more of a traditional Spanish area there are many expats that own and run a business here
