Estepona, Costa del Sol

Estepona has succeeded in maintaining the charm and character of a small town, despite growing tourism. Nevertheless, all the tourist facilities are here such as hotels, restaurants, leisure and cultural activities, and shops.

The numerous street cafes and tapas bars serve traditional Spanish delicacies and the steep, cobbled, narrow streets are great for a stroll. You’ll also find unusual shops and bodegas in Estepona.

Walk up to the Plaza de las Flores (The Estepona answer to the Orange Square of Marbella). On one side is the Casa de la Cultura, have a look inside, as there may well be an art exhibition being held by a local artist. Walk west to view the Clock Tower, the municipal market, the old town hall and the Castle of San Luis before heading down the hill to the seafront promenade. And if time permits, do some shopping in Calle Terraza and Calle Real, and get an ice-cold fino (sherry) with tapa on Calle Caridad.

The marina of Estepona is at the west end of the promenade. This is a very pleasant place for a stroll looking at the boats and stopping at one of the excellent bars and restaurants, open both midday and in the evening. On Sunday mornings there is a tourist market. After midnight (especially in the summer season) the port comes alive as night clubs and discos open up.

A part of the port of Estepona still functions as a fishing port which is in the western part of the marina. During the early mornings you can usually watch the fishing boats land their catch, depending on the season and which kind of fish is to be caught. One of the best fish restaurants is just next to the port right on the beach.
