  • 2. Renowned Beaches 

The Costa Del Sol is known for its beautiful, sandy beaches and Estepona is no different. The town is smaller than its counterparts in the Costa Del Sol (Marbella and Malaga) and there are usually fewer people at the beach, making for a more enjoyable and relaxing experience. The main beach in Estepona, known as La Rada runs from the Marina to the Old Town. La Rada beach is only a short walk from the main strip in Estepona. 

  • 3. Micro-Climate 

Estepona has over 325 days of sunshine per year! It also enjoys a moderate climate all year round. The best months are June to August when the weather is at its warmest. 

A micro-climate is described as ‘the climate of a very small or restricted area, especially when this differs from the climate of the surrounding area’ this means that the temperature in Estepona is different from the towns that surround it. This makes Estepona the perfect place on the Costa Del Sol to find a property. 

  • 4. Beautiful Old Town 

Estepona’s Old Town, along with Marbella and Malaga is one of the only Old Towns left in the Costa Del Sol. At the heart of the old town sits the Plaza de las Flores. The Plaza is full of restaurants and bars for all the family to enjoy and in the summer, the plaza is decorated with beautiful flowers and orange trees, once they bloom. The square is known to be peaceful, especially the small area by the fountain. Much like the plaza, the streets are scattered with bright flowers that invite you to explore the old town and relax in its tranquil settings. 

  • 5. Visiting the Estepona Mountains

Estepona is the home to The Sierra Bermeja mountain, which is the mountain that dominates the landscape across Estepona. The mountain placement is rare – located 10km from the sea – there are few places in the world where mountains of this size come so close to the coast. You are able to drive around the mountain and take in all of the breathtaking scenery and reach the top in just under an hour. For people who love adventures, this is the perfect day out when living in Estepona.
