Estepona, in a privileged setting, captivates its visitors in every nook. Its refurbished old town, one of Andalusia’s most beautiful, offers tourists the chance to enjoy a real urban garden, “The Costa del Sol Garden”.
Its labyrinth of white streets, adorned with picturesque flowerpots in bloom, give it the essence of a coastal Andalusian town. It conserves its customs and traditions in perfect, harmonious coexistence with its more modern, tourist appearance.
The city is famed for two expansive town beaches, Playa del Cristo and Playa de la Rada, plus a bounty of smaller beaches and coves along the coasts in both directions – for a whopping total of over 21 kilometers of beach access.
The old town of Estepona reminds us of the character of a typical Andalusian village. It is also one of the few remaining examples of this on the Costa del Sol. Its streets are pedestrianised and are characterised by their colour, flowers, drawings… Even the large murals painted on the facades of the city buildings are surprising. The poetry route can also be seen in the streets of the center, sentences written on the facades of the buildings.
The Plaza de las Flores is located in the old town and, as its name suggests, has a garden full of flowers.
Estepona is not short of a restaurant and whatever your taste, you will be satisfied with the choice. There are some excellent traditional tapas bars, Spanish restaurants and bodegas, if you want to enjoy typical Spanish and Mediterranean cuisine. Plus there are some excellent fish restaurants, both in the port and in the town, plus the beautiful beaches are home to a number of excellent Chiringuitos and beach bars.
Our traditional Andalusian country house Finca Alegria is located only 5 minutes from Estepona.
