Equidistant from La Linea and Marbella, this hotspot of the Costa del Sol can be reached from either Gibraltar or Malaga Airport.
Discover the Town
Whilst you will no doubt be exploring a little further afield, you should spend some time in Estepona itself. Begin by heading to Plaza de las Flores in the centre of the town. Stroll along the promenade and locate the bustling marina.
If you are looking out for the historical buildings here then marvel at the San Luis Castle walls and the El Calvario Chapel. There are three main museums situated in Estepona which are dedicated to bullfighting, ethnography and palaeontology too.
Traverse to Punta Pinillos or Playa de Velerín and view the unusual dark sand. Travel to all the beaches along the coastline and enjoy a lazy day.
In and Around the Estepona Area
You will surely travel straight to the popular harbour area in Puerto Banus. Perfect for catching some rays or sampling local cuisine, this will give you a taste of life here. If you fancy a spot of retail therapy then Corte Ingles and Marina Banus should be the places for you.
There are also many golf courses in this area of Spain. Los Arqueros is good for the average hobby golfer, whereas Santa Maria is altogether more challenging.
Visit the older part of the town and spend some time in Orange Square. You will be able to see the town hall here amongst other sights. Stroll through the historic streets and soak up the atmosphere. Relax at Avenida del Mar then head to a local restaurant in the evening to finish off your day.
Selwo Safari Park
Packed full of animals from all over the world, whether you have the kids in tow or not, this should provide a fascinating day out. Should you feel like trying something more adventurous, enjoy a camel ride or have a go at the zip wire.
Los Reales de Sierra Bermeja Natural Area
Use your hire car and drive to the top of Sierra Bermeja. If you wish to explore the area on foot, then stroll through the pine trees at Paseo de los Pinsapos. Take some snacks with you and stop off and enjoy a picnic.
