On the Costa del Sol we find beautiful villages such as Estepona, an ideal destination for enjoying your stay in the province of Malaga, where you can enjoy the culture, the natural beauty of the coastline and a gastronomy that delights its visitors.
Estepona is world famous for a number of reasons, including its wide range of tourist attractions, its well-kept town centre and the large number of activities on offer, such as golf, which benefit from modern and well-equipped sports facilities.
Bathed by the waters of the Mar de Alborán, between the Atlantic and the Mediterranean, its location on the coast of the province of Malaga makes it one of the most desirable coastal destinations in Europe.
Precisely because of this location, its real attractions are the beaches - spread over 21 kilometres of coastline and awarded with the Blue Flag distinction due to the quality of the water, sand and seaside services. Close to the beaches you will also find the seafront promenade and its beautiful marina. Here, you can visit the market every Sunday and browse the different handicrafts and typical local products on sale.
All of this means that tourism is growing more and more, and that the more than 74,000 inhabitants of the town multiply during the summer season, as visitors arrive to take advantage of the town’s attractions.
