Estepona has transformed itself from a historical fishing village and harbour town to “The Garden of the Costa del Sol”. It was one of the first resorts to attract foreign residents and tourists almost 50 years ago and as such, still holds a lot of character and charm reflected by the large number of fascinating old buildings in the old town which is known for its whitewashed buildings and polka-dotted flowerpots. Its charming boulevards, beautiful plazas and inescapably Spanish atmosphere act as a breath of fresh air.
Its 23km stretch of coastline is full of palm trees and beautiful beaches, making it an ideal location for those who like a leisurely stroll. Packed full of bars and restaurants, the Puerto Deportivo is the focal point of the town’s nightlife, especially at weekends, and is also excellent for water sports. Still a functioning fishing harbour, the Sunday morning market at the port makes for a highly enjoyable experience and attracts locals and tourist from miles around.
Its vast landscape and location between Malaga and Gibraltar give Estepona plenty of opportunity to develop further in the future which makes the town a favourite for those looking to purchase a slice of southern Spain.
