Just half an hour from the hustle and bustle of Marbella, the traditionally Spanish town of Estepona offers a unique option as an address. This town of 65,600 inhabitants is nestled on the coast halfway between Marbella and the golf community of Sotogrande, and 70km from Málaga airport. The town is a study in contrasts, with a centre that retains the charm of Old Spain, while master-planned, upscale developments grow out of its east and west flanks.
Calle Cruz one of the most beautiful in Estepona
Boaters will appreciate the marina at the western extreme of Estepona’s boardwalk and its proximity to both La Duquesa Port and Puerto Banus, located to the west and east respectively. There are many hotels offering luxury accommodation in the area, including the luxury five star resorts of the Kempinski Resort Hotel and Elba Estepona Gran Hotel & Thalasso Spa. From these hotels vacationers can access many facilities, including fine dining, ample nightlife and horseback riding—just a few of Estepona’s many attractions.
Golfers have a wide variety of choice too with seven golf courses in the vicinity, including highly recommended courses like Atalaya Golf & Country Club, El Paraiso Golf Club and Estepona Golf. Of great interest for families will be Selwo Safari Park, where hundreds of wild animals can be appreciated roaming free in a natural, yet controlled, setting of over one hundred hectares of land. Additionally for horse riding lovers, Estepona boasts the Equestrian Art School of the Costa de Sol, which encourages riding and hosts equestrian competitions and shows.
