La Alcaidesa is a gated community (known as an urbanization in Spanish) near Sotogrande, Spain (within the municipalities of La Línea de la Concepción and San Roque), in the Andalusian province of Cádiz, accessed by junction 124 on the Autovía A-7 coastal motorway. The natural topography allows the town to enjoy an enviable location overlooking the Mediterranean with easy access to Gibraltar, the Campo and the towns of Algeciras and Marbella. The town has two manned, gated access points and mobile security patrols. A fire station exclusively serving Alcaidesa was built in 2008. The town boasts two golf courses, the original is links style, said to be the only one in Spain. The second is a more traditional heathland course. The popular beach called Playa de La Alcaidesa is linked to Playa de La Hacienda, looking towards La Linea it is possible to see Gibraltar (a British overseas territory).
The main access to the urbanization is via a tree-lined avenue with panoramic views of the Bay. Gibraltar Airport is twenty-minutes-drive away, Malaga International Airport, a one hour drive east and Jerez Airport one and a half hours to the west.
