Located at the western end of the Costa del Sol at the foot of the majestic Sierra Bermeja mountains, Estepona is one of the most popular destinations for both tourists and foreign residents alike on the Costa del Sol. Fronting a wide, sweeping beach that stretches the length of the town, Estepona's charming boulevards, beautiful plazas and cobbled narrow streets breathing inescapably Spanish atmosphere, has an authenticity to it that many other resorts struggle to match.
The town is a former fishing village today perfectly mingled with the modern marina besides great leisure facilities and golden sandy beaches...
Every Sunday morning, throughout the year, the entire town almost comes to the local market that invades the harbor and its surrounding streets and alleys.
The eastern and western outskirts of town are markedly different. To the east – which is closer to Marbella and the true "nucleus" of the Costa del Sol – there is a surfers'-style beach bar, a superstore, the luxurious Laguna Village hotel with the trendy Puro beach club; while the remoter western fringe is home to the fishing harbour, tapas bars, flamenco bars and residential towers. The difference is quite striking, yet Estepona is comfortable with both.
Eating out in Estepona is highly affordable and immensely enjoyable. The town proposes some of the finest fish and seafood restaurants down at the pleasant harbor, which is also a great spot for an evening stroll and a drink with friends.
We find within Estepona's area all class of properties from low-priced apartments to luxury beachfront complex, small elderly bungalows, large villas, etc... Estepona offers for golfers a central position between the Costa del Sol's best courses.
Estepona is only 11km west of San Pedro, and en route to Gibraltar, Sotogrande and Algeciras.
