uStore-it opens new self-contained storage facility in Puerto Duquesa

If you are looking for storage in Puerto Duquesa on the Costa del Sol, uStore-it has now opened a self-contained storage facility on the port with 24 hour access.

With 300 berths, Puerto Duquesa has maintained its original charm and attracts visitors from all over Europe.  Although several new blocks of apartments have been built around the marina, and some property development continues in the area, most of it is on the opposite side of the road to Duquesa Port, and has not affected the harbour itself.

There is an ever-increasing English speaking population here, and there are many visitors from the north of Spain in July and August. During the summer months there is a quaint street market along the waterside offering all manner of local goods. The harbour side is closed to normal traffic making it a safer area for children, and Duquesa is still a working fishing port.

The beauty of this port is its location, its cleanliness and its vast selection of bars, street cafés and restaurants offering everything from fish and chips to lobster thermidor. Duquesa is definitely one of the more understated marinas on the Costa del Sol, and also offers water sports facilities on the local beaches, including scuba diving, kite surfing, pedalos and water skiing. Some of the most beautiful, unspoilt beaches in Andalucia stretch to the east and west of the marina, and sun beds and parasols can be hired for a reasonable price.

Golf enthusiasts are spoilt for choice at this end of the Costa del Sol, and the recently improved Duquesa course is one of the best in Andalucia. Also, Sotogrande and the famous Valderrama course is only 15 minutes away by car. The Volvo Masters is held here every October/November, and tickets can be booked online.

With families in mind, the fabulous Selwo Wildlife Park is situated just a few kilometres east of Estepona town, and can be easily reached by car. Boasting over 2,000 semi-free animals, and 200 species, this is a wonderland for children and adults alike. The animals are well cared for and enjoy roaming around in over 100 hectares of semi-natural environment. Just over the ravine, where the zebras and camels live, open safari trucks operate in two directions around the park, and most of the larger animals can be seen from here. Brown bears, tigers, lions, elephants and giraffes can all be viewed at a comfortable distance, and there are also plenty of smaller species to see – the meerkats being a particular favourite. A café and restaurant facilities are also situated throughout the park.
