About Estepona

Lying at the foot of the Sierra Bermeja mountains along the western coast of the Costa del Sol between Marbella and Gibraltar, Estepona still retains some of the ambiance and atmosphere of the Andalusian fishing village it once was. Popular with tourists in the holiday periods, the resort settles down out of season to become more of a working town where people come to do business, shop and eat.

The palm tree lined Paseo Maritimo promenade runs from east to west virtually along the whole beach front, one of the few that has managed to stop high rise development that is kept to the other side of the road that runs through the town.

The narrow back streets in the old part of town are full of excellent bars and restaurants, many of which serve traditional Spanish cuisine where fresh fish and seafood is a speciality.   Chiringuitos, beach bars,  and restaurants are scattered along the upper beach areas offering a cool drink, sardines on the spit and shade for those looking to relax.

Estepona Marina may not have yachts as big as those moored in Puerto Banus but this is reflected in the prices of the bars where drinks are more sensible prices. The Sunday morning market, held here between 10 am and 2 pm is more for the tourist, with souvenirs sitting amongst stalls selling ‘look alike’ designer goods. The Wednesday morning open air town market is where the locals go to buy fresh fruit and vegetables. There is also a daily covered market

Golf enthusiasts are well catered for with four courses surrounding the area; Estepona Golf, Los Almendros, Los Flamingos Golf and Atalaya.

The town is still home to a bullring, built in 1972 with unusual asymmetric design, where about 16 bullfights are held each year. The building also houses the Municipal Museum of Bullfighting and a Museum of Agriculture, Fossils and Archeology and during the summer months the venue hosts concerts.

For families looking to relocate to this area there are several good local and international schools from which to choose.
