Estepona, a fishing town

Estepona is a municipality in the province of Malaga, which is becoming over the years a tourist centre of the western part of Costa del Sol. Its wide beaches, its beach-front old quarter, its monuments and its ancient air of fishing town, turn Estepona into a more than recommended spot in the Andalusian coast.

And as in every tourist enclave, we find a series of hotels in Estepona targeted at all types of publics, although  probably the most predominant in Estepona are the family hotels, due to the family atmosphere of this destination.

One of the main places of tourist interests in Estepona are its extensive beaches, which go throughout 21 kilometres of the Malaga coast. Most of them are full equipped with all types of services.

One of its most emblematic beaches is La Rada, located in the centre of the city and next to the promenade where we find restaurants and shops for all tastes. 

La Galera, Bahía Dorada and Punta del Saladillo beaches are also very recommended, being the last mentioned one of the longest beaches in Malaga, with 3 kilometres of dark fine sand. And for those who prefer a nude beach, Costa Natura is the ideal place, one of the first nude beaches in Costa del Sol.

Another of the peculiarities of Estepona is that its old quarter is situated on the beachfront. The irregular and paved street of the old quarter gives this area a very special atmosphere. There are located some of the most outstanding buildings of Estepona, such as The  Church of Nuestra Señora de Los Remedios and La Ermita del Calvario. 

Other monuments are also worth visiting in the old quarter, such as  the walls of the San Luis Castle, the watchtowers, the Clock Tower situated in the square of the same name, or the beautiful Flower Square, decorated with flowers during the whole year.

We also find in the southern part of the municipality the lively marina of Estepona, where all types of sports can be practised, such as sailing or scuba diving.
