Estepona, Costa del Sol
Estepona is a coastal town on the Costa del Sol which, despite its expansion, has maintained its character and ‘old town’ feel. There are still numerous places where one can find traditional Spanish food amongst the narrow cobbled streets.
Estepona has good, sandy beaches but is also within easy reach of Puerto de la Duquesa and also close enough to visit some of the lovely inland towns and villages such as Gaucin, Casares and Genalguacil. It is just an hour’s drive to Malaga from Estepona. The Plaza de las Flores and the Clock Tower (Torre de Reloj) are attractive places to visit within the town and there is a popular market on Wednesdays. There are many golf courses in the area which makes it a popular destination as well as the fact that the average temperature is 18C.
The port and harbour is just a short walk from the town centre and is mainly centred around fishing although there are modern marina facilities and aside from the market in the town centre on Wednesdays, it also has its own market on a Sunday.
