The Estepona area guide

Sights and attractions

A whitewashed haven occupying the more relaxed end of the Costa del Sol in southern Spain, Estepona was once a sleepy fishing town until eager visitors were quick to notice the town’s enchanting beauty and monetised on the town’s scenic offerings.

This picturesque town belonging to the province of Malaga and the autonomous community of Andalusia boasts two Blue Flag beaches, several golf courses and museums, mesmerizing wall murals and the Sierra Bermeja mountain range, which proudly dominates the backdrop. The mountain range is, in fact, easily accessible by car. Once at the top, the extensive views spanning the ancient city and shoreline are fantastic to say the least and something a discerning sightseer should visit at least once.

From the Romans to the Moors, Estepona has been occupied by a diverse range of groups, each who left a few reminders of their rule over the town. The crumbling ruins of the Moorish Watchtowers and the Castillo de San Luis are ripe for historical exploration and provide fascinating insights into the town’s intriguing past.

The Old Town is brimming with quirky stores and traditional Spanish tapas bars. The plazas are beautiful and perfect for watching the world go by, as is the marina. The promenade boasts gorgeous seascapes, a plethora of fine dining spots, a bustling fishing fleet and fishermen auctioning their fresh catch of the day. As the sun sets, the promenade’s many bars and clubs open and welcome night owls to party until dawn.

Restaurants and cafes

Though Estepona draws in thousands of sun-seekers from various destinations each year, the town preserves its distinct Andalusian charm and character. This is further reflected in the exquisite traditional Spanish fare that can be sampled at one of the many tapas bars, restaurants, chiringuitos (beach bars) and bodegas (wine bars).

Whether you wish to dine Al Fresco style along the waterfront or in a humble diner in the historic Old Town, the fare is guaranteed to be mouth-wateringly delicious. The Palm Beach Chiringuito situated on Playa de la Rada beach prepares appetising Spanish favourites such as Paella and attracts a wide variety of clientele who all come for one thing: fine wine and delicious food.

If, however, you prefer to savour more international delights, Estepona is also home to a mind-boggling selection of diners serving everything from Chinese to Argentinian. The Michelin-starred El Lido restaurant provides customers with a glamorous setting, gourmet Asian cuisine and stunning panoramic views.

Complementing this fantastic dining scene are a number of cafes serving hot cups of joe to those in dire need of a caffeine fix. Coffee shops such as Cafeteria Don Capuchino also offer locals and visitors the chance to truly unwind and recharge their batteries.

Shops

As Estepona is a premier tourist destination, the shopping scene is naturally excellent. The town boasts unique handmade items, colourful markets (which take place every Wednesday and Sunday) and beloved fashion houses.

If, however, you seek a glamorous shopping district, a visit to Puerto Banús is a must. This glittering marina is home to the rich and the fabulous and one of the area’s finest shopping complexes. Inside, an array of designer boutiques can be found.

Travel

It’s fairly easy to get into Estepona. From the UK, catch a direct flight into either Gibraltar or Malaga International Airport. Both airports are around an hour away from the heart of Estepona.

From the airport, you can catch a taxi or private transfer to the town – the route from the airport to Estepona is a scenic one, passing mountain ranges and beautiful seascapes. Once in the town, locals tend to rely on the local bus service to get from A to B, as well as to get to cities across the region. However, the most relied upon method is, of course, car as the town sits on the A7 toll road, which provides access to much of the Costa del Sol district and further afield!
