Why Estepona?

Created: Wednesday, 10 July 2019 Written by Katherine O`Neill

Estepona, with its beautiful old town and pretty port, is a real success story for the Costa del Sol. The town has really grown rapidly, but maintained its quintessential, traditional, Spanish roots; if you’re looking for a slice of real culture along the Costa del Sol, Estepona is where you need to go.

The old town is full of characterful cobbled lanes, tapas bars and pretty little hidden away shops. Bars are restaurants on this part of the Costa del Sol tend to be cheaper than its coastal counterparts, but still retaining excellent quality. Of course there are plenty of traditional meats and seafood, but international tastes are also well catered for.

And you can’t mention Estepona without talking of the beach; perfectly complemented by a beautiful promenade, the beach is long and wide and you’ll find lots of great chiringuitos (beach bars) along the way. The promenade is equipped for all sorts of lifestyles from play areas for kids to sport enthusiasts making the most of the gyms or simply running in this dreamy setting.

You can make your way to the port of Estepona by following the promenade. You can find a Sunday market here amongst more restaurants and bars. What’s more is that the port really comes to life at night with small music bars that stay open late into the night; a great venue for couples or young families.

What really tops off Estepona is its surrounding country lanes and rustic fincas. You can also find some great picnic spots around Sierra Bermeja - the mountains backing Estepona. What more could you want?
