Sotogrande has the most varied sporting facilities in Europe including two golf courses rated amongst the top 5 in Europe. The Valderrama golf club which hosted the 1997 Ryder Cup, the World Golf Championships in November 2000 and annually the Volvo Masters, and also the Sotogrande Old Course. Sotogrande also boasts Polo fields, Tennis and Fronton Courts, Riding stables, leisure centres and a wonderful marina where fine restaurants and bars line the water's edge.

Some of the best kept beaches on the coast can be found within and around Sotogrande. The beaches in this area are meticulously maintained, private and secluded, and the least crowded offering peace and quiet. On the estate there are two exclusive beach clubs which between them they boast 7 swimming pools, lifeguards, supervised children's areas, beautiful lawns with sun-loungers neatly arranged around the pools, sandy beach just a few steps away, sauna's, massage rooms and fantastic restaurants and bars including a superb buffet throughout July and August at El Cucurucho. Also, at El Cucurucho there is a supervised children's play area called Iguana Park where parents can leave their children safe in the knowledge that they will be both well looked after and well entertained.

El Octogono is the best placed of the two beach clubs for water-sports. There is catamaran sailing from the sailing school, jet-skiing and water-skiing off the beach nearby and kayaking on the River Guadiaro where a natural lagoon has formed at the rivermouth providing an ideal place to learn the skills in a safe environment. This is a great place for anyone to try out and learn a new activity.

At both Clubs it is possible to pay on a daily, weekly or annual basis except July and August when you have to take a minimum of one weeks membership.

Within Sotogrande lies the River Guadiaro and Estuary Sotogrande a designated Andalucian National Park, Wildlife and Nature Reserve of 27 hectare of marshland.
