The 7 things you must see in Estepona

This beautiful and authentic Spanish town is located on the coast, maintaining its character and charm without the usual tourism trappings. Visit for its cobbled streets and bodegas at each turn, and stay for relaxation or additional excursions.

  • 1. Old Town

    This is the beating heart of Estepona, and the place to stay, eat, and hang out if you want to be in the thick of the action. It's vibrant at night, so come and soak up the atmosphere.

  • 2. Plaza de la Flores

    This square has some beautiful restaurants, from fine dining to quick bites of tapas. Our tip? Come for breakfast in the morning when it's cool, calm, and popular with locals.

  • 3. Ruta de Murales Artisticos

    This amazingly colorful and vibrant route through the city's street art and many murals is a great way to spend an afternoon. Visit the tourist office for a map of the artwork.

  • Paseo Maritimo de Estepona

    4. Paseo Maritimo de Estepona

    Enjoy the seafront and the sea air with a walk along the waterfront. The excellent views are best enjoyed at the marina -- stop by the playground for entertainment for the kids.

  • 5. Nuestra Senora de Los Remedios

    This beautiful church overlooks the old town and offers lovely views, but be prepared for the steps to the top. Entry is free!

  • El Cristo Beach

    6. El Cristo Beach

    Looking to relax and catch some rays? The area has a few pleasant beaches, but El Cristo has it all--blue flag status, fabulous sunsets, and shallow waters--perfect for children.

  • Ronda

    7. Ronda

    This beautiful old village makes a lovely day trip by car. Cliff walking is popular, as is just visiting, grabbing lunch, and seeing the architecture of Puente Nuevo bridge.

Planning Your Visit

  • Getting around

    Renting a car is an easy and relatively inexpensive way to get around the region. For day hire there are a few central places in Estepona--try to compare online before you go, or ask for quotes from a few before committing, and make sure the price includes an excess waiver (unless you have separate insurance coverage). For ease, it may be worth hiring a car from the airport. Compare online, before leaving home, for the best price.

  • Golf in the region

    Southern Spain is a popular place for golf and there is no shortage of courses to serve your needs in Estepona. Estepona Golf Course is a popular, reasonably priced, and well-manicured course; while 18 holes at Valle Romano will set you back a little more, although it's a nicer course with great views.

If you want more time in Gibraltar, better book a sightseeing tour instead of guided. We had 4 and half hours in Gibraltar, so there wasn't time for the cable car. But overall organisation was good. Special thanks to the local guide John for the usefull information and driving masterclass!

Everything is very clear, on time, but the road takes 4 hours from Torremolinos, Gibraltar is wonderful, the guide is great, I liked everything very much.

We were greeted very nicely, everything was straightforward. The Zossen were really nice, as absolute beginners we felt very safe.

Brilliant experience. The coach driver in Gibraltar was absolutely amazing and knowledgeable and knew what he was on about.

Superb city, the guide Maria del Mar is very professional and the driver Joseph is perfect !! I recommend.
