Early in the day or when the sun goes down, it is more than pleasant to walk the footbridge next to the sea that accompanies you along the entire coastline of Estepona. The area is enlivened by different bars and beach bars where you can have a drink. It also has many benches, giant chess boards and plantations that refresh the walk. It is a pleasure to wander looking at the beautiful beaches of Malaga.

On the opposite side of the Mediterranean we can see the mountains that embrace the town (there are several hiking trails),

The port area, lose yourself among nets and yachts
Between Playa de La Rada and Playa del Cristo is the fishing district of Estepona with its Punta Doncella Lighthouse, 21 meters from the 19th century; but also its marina. In the Marina there are many cafes among luxury yachts and at night it is especially lively.

You cannot miss the opportunity to take a boat trip through the port after a guided tour to feel like one of the rich people who dock in it.

On Sundays a craft market is organized there.

What to do in Estepona: sports activities and fun excursions

In Estepona you can enjoy many activities ranging from cycling to snorkeling, playing golf or horseback riding on the beach.

A very fun excursion and a good option considering its proximity to Gibraltar, you can hire a one-day shopping excursion.

Do a little sightseeing through its flower-filled streets
The historic center of Estepona is a cluster of intricate streets full of flowers. The narrow streets look like corridors of orange trees that concatenate charming squares such as Blas Infante, the Clock (16th century tower) or the “de las Flores” square.

I could affirm without fear of being wrong that it is one of the most beautiful old towns on the Costa del Sol. With a typical Andalusian style of whitewashed houses decorated with pots of multicolored geraniums. Going on an excursion to Estepona is a great plan.

The Church of Santa María de los Remedios stands out (as beautiful on the outside as it is on the inside) and the ruins of the Castillo de San Luis, built by the Catholic Monarchs in the 15th century.
