The spectacular town of Estepona proudly carries the status of one of the Costa del Sol's hidden gems, being often overlooked in favour of nearby and more famous Marbella, but still a popular resort and holiday destination with its renowned beaches. It is located in the province of Málaga, which is part of the autonomous community of Andalusia and it is nestled within its own natural environment, surrounded by the sea and the mountains.
Let's look at some of the many beautiful beaches of Estepona:
Playa del Cristo is the most famous one, with a breakwater on the east side and along with the natural curve of the bay and its east-facing orientation the beach is protected from breezes and sea currents, resulting in the transparent pool-like water keeping surprisingly warm;
Playa La Rada is Estepona’s largest beach as well as the one closest to the old-town, with an urban feel to it given by the adjacent apartment blocks and wide array of chiringuitos and cafes either on the promenade or just on the other side of Avenida España, its 2.6 kilometres of beachfront offer play areas for kids or volleyball courts;
Playa Galera is one of the not overly busy ones, mainly used by the residents of the urbanizations of the coast road;
Playa Arroyo Vaquero is where the Arroyo Vaquero river reaches the sea, it is a quiet beach, with ample parking space and a chiringuito.
These are only a few of the many inviting beaches Estepona has to offer and you can enjoy most of them by taking the Paseo Marítimo walk, with benches all the way and lots of places to stop for a cold drink or coffee it is the best place to stop and enjoy the sunrise with its unusual light created by the sea and the odd clouds in the sky.
The Costa del Sol is world-famous for its beautiful beaches, which means that the most popular of them can become unbearably busy during summer. This is especially true in the tourist magnets of Marbella, Torremolinos and Fuengirola. But due to Estepona’s lesser fame even its main beaches, Playa La Rada or Playa del Cristo, are less crowded than those of the other resort towns, even during July and August.
Moving away from Estepona beaches the terrain becomes mountainous and perfectly suited for a good hike up the Sierra Bermeja range. Topping out at 1,500 metres, these mountains might look barren and forbidding, but as you work your way up you’ll realise they are entirely accessible and you will discover untamed forests with Spanish firs, a species that only grows in this part of Andalusia.
Estepona is strongly committed to culture and often exhibits art in its streets. Open-air sculptures by renowned artists, artistic murals that decorate building façades and bring life to the streets, all these constitute a rich and diverse heritage which will surprise visitors, who can wander through the different neighbourhoods to find buildings that host pictorial works of great quality and originality, and discover a new way of enjoying art.
