Now that beach weather is all but behind us, we’re left with a hole in our weekends, wondering what to do other than lazing around the house feeling slothful.
Luckily, beautiful Sotogrande has so much to offer so you won’t regret a sunny Sunday spent strolling along the marina.
The Sunday market that takes place in Sotogrande marina is a real treat for lovers of luxury artisan arts and crafts. Shops are generally closed on Sunday in Spain, so 68 artisan stalls selling a wide variety of handicrafts, clothes and original art are a welcome indulgence.
Held at the Ribera del Marlin boardwalk, the multicoloured awnings presenting a pretty backdrop to the blue sea and private yachts moored in the marina.
Sotogrande market is a far cry from the typical flea market to be found in other locations, however. Local artists from the Costa del Sol display their wares, alongside stalls selling stunning ceramics, jewellery, antiques from across the globe and boho clothing boutiques.
