Unlike many of the towns on the Costa del Sol, Estepona understands the importance of preserving her Andalusian character.

Most of her buildings date back to last century and the town is a maze of white-washed, narrow streets, shaded squares and pretty patios with many nice restaurants and terraces to enjoy.

Down at the harbour, totally rebuilt in 1977, fish is auctioned daily on the quayside: brill, hake, sandpiper, swordfish, lobster, octopus, squid, red mullet, anchovies and the famous sardines. There are also a variety of sport amenities in Estepona port along with dolphin spotting trips, sailing and fishing excursions. Estepona port is a lively port with many nice restaurants and bars.

Beaches

The Estepona coastline, shallow and sandy, extends over more than 21 km. The Rada Beach, located in front of town, has all services: restaurants, showers, lifeguards, etc. Awarded with the Blue Flag, it is the largest and most popular.

The Cristo Beach forms a charming cove, and is ideal for any time of the year, being quite sheltered with shallow waters and therefore also ideal for children.

Children

Estepona is absolutely fantastic for children; it has mild temperatures in the winter, which means that the beach is never out of the question.  There are numerous other activities, like the rest of Spain, Estepona has fantastic playgrounds, often with a cafe attached so you can watch the children play whilst you enjoy a cup of the fantastic Spanish coffee. 

Throughout the year, there are numerous events in Estepona for children and adults to enjoy, from chess tournaments in the street, medieval markets and lots more. 

In the surrounding area, there are also some great attractions, such as the Selwo adventure park, Go kart tracks and in Benalmadena, a sea life centre. 

On top of all the attractions, Estepona (and Spain in general) is a fantastic place to take the children as they are welcomed anywhere at any time.  The Spanish love children, and it is commonplace to see restaurants full of children until late into the night. 

Festivities

Spring sees Estepona's religious celebrations and popular festivals take place, such as the Holy Week and San Isidro's Fair. Summer brings many visitors to Estepona not least to indulge in the range of cultural and sport events, live concerts, including the most popular festivity, the "Fiestas Mayores" and the Virgen del Carmen.

Environment and Climate

Due to its natural environment, surrounded by sea and Sierra Bermeja mountains, Estepona enjoys a microclimate with an average of 325 sunny days each year.

Estepona, traditionally a small Andalucian fishing port, is now one of the fastest growing and most popular destinations on the Costa del Sol. Despite its recent growth, Estepona has managed to preserve its unique identity and so still remains one of the most laid back towns on the coast.

Golf

Estepona is a real paradise for golfers: surrounded by at least 20 nice golf courses (9 and 18 holes) only minutes away, both Estepona east (direction Marbella) and Estepona west (direction Sotogrande, famous for its Valderama golf course).

Estepona Golf (18 holes) is a beautiful golf course, with a nice clubhouse and terrace to enjoy a drink or lunch, overlooking the golf course.

Andalucia is known for its typical Spanish white villages in the mountains and of course many places of interest like for example Seville, Granada and Cordoba
