ESTEPONA

Estepona is a town and municipality in the comarca of the Costa del Sol, southern Spain. It’s  located in the province of Malaga, part of the autonomous community of Andalusia. Its district covers an area of 137 square kilometres in a fertile valley crossed by small streams and a mountainous area dominated by the Sierra Bermeja, which reaches an elevation of 1,449 m at the peak of Los Reales.

With a population of around 70,000, Estepona is one of the few coastal towns that has succeeded in maintaining its pueblo charm and character. Notwithstanding, all the tourist facilities are here, including hotels, restaurants, leisure and cultural activities, and shops.

The numerous street cafes and tapas bars still serve traditional Spanish delicacies. In the ‘old town’ the steep, narrow streets are pedestrianised and decorated with different colour flowerpots.  It is a delight for photographers.  You will find bars and small shops in Estepona, where you would least expect them, all very inviting and friendly. 

Estepona is renowned for its beaches, which stretch along some 21 km of coastline. It is a popular resort and holiday destination.

Due to its natural environment, surrounded by the sea and the mountains, Estepona has a micro-climate with over 325 days of sunshine per year.

Estepona is not known for the “night club” culture found in some areas on the Costa Del Sol but does have a wide variety of bar and restaurants. Dining choices emphasise locally caught seafood and range from local Spanish cuisine to other Mediterranean cuisines, including Italian and French. Many restaurants have terraces allowing diners to eat al fresco (outside) during the late evening.

Most restaurants are located near the seafront, either along the main promenade fronting the sea or along Calle Real. There are several small plazas or squares next to Calle Real, on which numerous restaurants can be found.

Estepona’s small and medium-size local shops, particularly in the old town, offer locally made produce and goods. The recently renovated indoor market in the town centre has stalls offering fresh meat, fish, and vegetables. Boutiques in the main town centre offer contemporary international clothing brands and other goods. Typical of Spanish towns of this size, a market is held in the main square (on Wednesdays), featuring clothing as well as food and vegetables. Estepona port also hosts a Sunday market for “touristy” goods
