Estepona is a pretty Spanish village at the Western end of the Costa del Sol and is one of the few coastal towns that has managed to maintain much of its original Andalucian charm with cobbled streets full of hidden Spanish eateries offering the very best of the local delicacies.
As a traditional Spanish fishing village, Estepona can offer its visitors lots to do and see and it is easy to see why Estepona is somewhere you will go back to time and time again. In the town centre there is a bull ring that holds several bull fights each year as well as open air concerts during the summer. It is also where you will find Estepona’s 4 museums dedicated to showcasing the history of the town as a centre of agricultural interest within the bull ring complex.
Estepona is a great destination for all the family and for a fun day out, visit the Selwo Wildlife and Adventure park. Situated on over 1 million square metres of land, a visit to the Selwo park will feel like you have been transported to the plains of Africa. With around 2,000 animals you can spend the day observing all of the animals in almost completely natural habitats and is a great day out for all the family.
The beaches of Estepona are also very popular and a wide range of water sports and activities can be enjoyed along its golden sands. With many beach side huts, or “chiringuitos” located along the length of the beach, you can easily spend the day sunbathing and eating and drinking.
Don’t leave Estepona without a visit to the marina. Located at the western side of the beach the marina is perfect for an afternoon stroll after you have had a lunch of local caught fish and is a very lively place to be come nightfall as there are many bars and discos located here. If you are out late enough on a Saturday night you might even catch the popular Sunday morning market.
Estepona is located 75km west of Malaga Airport and would take approximately an hour to drive to. The A7 and toll road AP7 link Estepona to all of the major tourist destinations along the Costa del Sol making it easy enough to enjoy days out to all local towns.
