Estepona

 

 

Estepona is the Costa del Sol's most westerly resort and lies approximately 80 km from Málaga airport (Gibraltar Airport is the nearest international airport, it is 45 Km away but has direct flights just to Madrid and London). Due to its natural environment, surrounded by the sea and Sierra Bermeja mountains, Estepona has a micro climate with over 325 days of sunshine per year. Estepona is renowned for its beaches, which stretch along some 23 km of coastline. It is a popular resort and holiday destination.

This once tiny fishing and farming community is at the quieter end of the Costa del Sol and has retained much of its "pueblo" charm. The town has managed to embrace modern tourism without surrendering its traditional Spanish character and appeal. Notwithstanding, all the tourist facilities is here, including hotels, restaurants, leisure, cultural activities and shops.

In the old quarter you'll be delighted by the steep, narrow, cobbled streets where you feel a horse or a donkey is more likely to overtake you than a car. Stop at a street cafe in the Plaza de las Flores in the town centre or explore the tiny shops and bodegas which entice you into a web of back streets. Most modern shops is in the centre of the town on Calle Real and Calle Terraza. Of course the main attraction for tourists is the beaches which are clean and well equipped . There's the main sandy beach of La Rada in the centre of Estepona and a delightful sheltered cove, Playa El Cristo, to the west of the marina.

The marina is at the western end of the seafront promenade and is a great place to stroll or just sit and people watch. It's divided into two parts, one for the working fishing vessels and the other for pleasure boats. For the early risers the fish market at the harbour is an interesting sight. A large variety of fish is auctioned off but you must be there by 6am as it tends to be finished by 7am.

For entertainment, there's a good range of water sports, some excellent golf courses, a riding school and the Selwo Safari Park. Selwo is one of the world’s most exciting nature parks. The largest of its kind in Spain, the African styled safari park features over 2000 species of animals living in more than 100 hectares of land in semi-wild conditions. Selwo Safari Park is an exceptional day out for anyone who wants to see animals, some quite rare, all kept in beautiful, caring environments.
