Playa Lindavista lies to the west.

Playa San Pedro de Alcantara

This is the long straight and wide beach backed by a seafront promenade, cycle path and a quiet urban access road.  This beach is never crouded due to its size. 

The beach offers full services including a Red Cross first aid post. 

Its high standards of cleanliness and excellent facilities are often recognised by the Blue Flag award.

There is no car park specifically for this beach but there is ample parking on both sides of the street that runs along the entire length of the beach. There are also cycle paths alongside the roads. 

The San Pedro and Marbella Seafront Promenade  now nearly 12km. From the Bajadilla fishing port - Marbella town centre - El Ancon - Rio Verde - Puerto Banus - San Pedro. It is part of the Senda Litoral de Malaga (Malaga Coastal Path) a projected 163km path following the entire coast of Malaga province from Manilva to Nerja. Once completed, this long-distance path will be a major tourist attraction for the Costa del Sol, and for Andalucia.
