Costa del Sol - Estepona

The resort of Estepona is much quieter than the more well known places up the coast such as Torremolinos or Fuengirola. One reason could be its locality, which is 8o kms away from Malaga airport which serves the Costa del Sol resorts. The airport of Gibralter is only about 45 kms away but is only served by a few flights from the UK, mainly London.

Although Estepona has a coastline of more than 20 kms, it has still retained a lot the Spanish village charm which is often lost these days with the invasion of tourists ! The town still has the narrow streets and pretty white washed dwellings, along with small squares sheltered by trees in which the locals gather for their daily chat! Here also is the marina and port where the fishermen bring their catch to sell at the daily auction for the restraunts and Chiringuitos which line the sea front.
