Estepona, Spain is located to the west of Marbella in the foothills of the Sierra Bermeja Mountains. Estepona, Spain is well known for its lovely beaches and tiny coves which stretch along its coastline. At the western end of the Paseo Maritimo is Estepona’s charming port and harbour that is located only a short walk from town.
Estepona Spain was traditionally a Spanish holiday resort with tourists from the north of Spain driving down for their summer holidays. Today, however, it attracts many tourists from northern Europe with a large ex pat community choosing to live there permanently. This has contributed to a buoyant Estepona property market with people investing in villas and apartments either close to the beach or in the foothills behind. There are many apartments in Estepona Spain that are built front-line to the beach giving them beautiful views to the sea and direct access onto the beaches. The many buyers of Estepona property have contributed largely to the economy of the town which has totally reformed the infrastructure of the whole area.
The cobbled narrow streets in the old town, the fishing port, Spanish cafes and bars spilling out on the pavements, and the quaint shops and bodegas, all combine with the modern Puerto Deportivo (leisure port) and marina, the tourist facilities and golden sandy beaches, to make this a comfortable and interesting place to stay.
In front of Estepona town is La Rada Beach, a long beach of golden sands, where you can enjoy activities such as Kayaking and windsurfing. The wonderful El Cristo beach is located to the west of the town and is an excellent beach for families and it is sheltered within a cove.
Eating out in Estepona Spain gives you an abundance of choice with numerous restaurants, beach bars and bodegas all serving tapas and fresh fish which has been caught by the local fishermen.
