A quick guide to Estepona

If you’re looking for somewhere to live on the Costa del Sol that’s both modern and yet still retains much of its authentic Spanish atmosphere, then Estepona 75 km. to the west of Málaga is probably the place for you.

Like many places along the Costa del Sol, Estepona has grown from humble small fishing port origins into a bustling, vibrant and yes, modern town with the kind of 21st century amenities and infrastructure to match.

But unlike many other towns along the coast that have perhaps succumbed to the more commercialised side of tourism and over development, Estepona seems to have modernised itself whist keeping the essence of its natural charm.

It’s a great place to live and work!

In the heart of the old town of Estepona, the narrow streets are still cobbled and lined with impossibly quaint Andalucian whitewashed houses whose courtyards and balconies often seem to literally burst with colourful flowers.

The long beachfront has one of the most elegant pedestrian promenades to be found anywhere in Spain featuring palm trees, sub-tropical flowers, childrens’ play areas and of course the ubiquitous chiringuitos (beachside restaurants) specialising in delicious seafood and fish dishes and other fabulously tasty Spanish fare right through the year.

The port area boasts a great many good quality restaurants serving both Spanish and international cuisine and with a variety of different bars and clubs has a nightlife to rival any on the coast.

The outskirts of town meanwhile feature plenty of attractive, safe and well-cared for urbanisations of private villas, townhouses and apartments.

There are many excellent private and public schools in the area and the recreational and sports facilities and public services available are first class.

There’s plenty of good shops from large supermarket chains to exclusive fashion boutiques plus of course, the road communications with the rest of the coast, Málaga and Gibraltar airports and the rest of Spain are excellent with both the N-340 and Autopista del Sol motorways on its doorstep.

In fact, Estepona is a perfect town for families and people looking for somewhere authentically Spanish to call home on Spain’s Costa del Sol.
