Sabinillas is a small village that lies approximately 1 kilometre from Puerto de
la Duquesa and 15 kilometres from
Estepona. It is sometimes thought of as an
extension of Estepona, but it is a community in its own right. There are many
British ex-pats living in the village. It is slowly redeveloping to attract more
visitors; at the moment it is a peaceful village perfectly situated for visiting
larger areas such as
Puerto Banus. It has been discovered in recent
years that Sabinillas was the site of an elaborate Roman fishing village.
Major Tourist Attractions

as football, tennis and squash. There are some great golf courses a short
distance away from the village including one at Puerto du la Duquesa. Sabinillas
