Alcaidesa Links Golf Course has almost 2 km of beachfront. A considerable number of its holes give on to the beach, between sand dunes only partially covered by vegetation. The course has an uninterrupted 18-hole round beginning at the first hole by the Clubhouse and not returning to the latter until the 18th, also located by the Clubhouse. The difficulty on the course mainly concerns the prevailing winds in the area. One of the peculiarities that most impresses the visitor are the spectacular views of the Mediterranean, the Straits of Gibraltar and North Africa, and the unobstructed views of the sea from virtually any location on the course. Because the course is a links course, the winds in the area substantially influence play. There are currently 5 par threes, two of which have water features in front, 8 par fours and 5 par fives, of which one has a water feature just in front of the green.
