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

What people are saying about Estepona
Ronda The guide on the coach name was José he speaks 7 languages and flaunt is all, he was very informative about each town we passed through. The journey to Ronda had spectacular views stopping off at a village called Setenil where we was treated as it was a festival, people in local dress, riders & horses and procession. After moving onto Ronda the same festival was in Ronda but with more People and evermore elaborated dress from men & lady’s our first stop was the bullring and going through the history of the bullfights and a walk around the bullring itself. Moving onto the winery where we had some wine tasting from white, Red to sweet sherry. We then see what everyone come to see the Ronda Bridge instead of following everyone else where you only get a limited view we went down to another view point and got great views and some super photos. After we had lunch in a cafeteria up one of the side streets avoiding the Main Street as prices are higher to tourist; a great day.
My wife & I really enjoyed this day tour. It was fun & enlightening! We saw lots of not so great reviews so were skeptical but honestly I don't know what people expect for the amount of money paid & the time it takes to get there & back...all in all we thought it was exceptionally well run & organized. If you are looking for free time to shop & wander the city on your own this is not the tour for you - it is a fast paced organized tour with no time to spend exploring on your own. TIP: take eros for the street hawkers...they are VERY persistent but if you know this going in & keep a good attitude its over soon enough and some of them have pretty cool stuff plus it gets cheaper the closer you get to leaving...My only negative comment would be when we got back to Spain we had to wait quite awhile at the port for our bus to take us back because the bus driver had driven to many hours earlier & we had to wait out his mandatory rest period - they had cold beer so it was all good!
Julia Tour Operators, and their guides did a good job to cover as much as they could in one day; wish had more things to see in Tangier, as a lot of time was consumed in travelling.
This tour is not for people scared of heights. The drive up was steep and the only thing that seperated the mini bus from the edge were cinder blocks placed along the edge. Once we got to our destination we were able to take pics of and with the monkeys. The caves were beautiful. My 6 and 11 year old loved it!
We were picked up form the city center in Malaga. The trip to Gibraltar took a few hours. After passing customs we had some free time to explore the city which is very British looking (what I did not expect). We almost got lost on the way back to the meeting point so remember your way! We then took a local tour with a minibus to the main sights there (the europe point, the caves). the guide was very funny and relaxed - former military. Afterwards some more time for shopping/eating/sightseeing and then travelling back. Travel time was about 6 hours (3 to and 3 back), the tour was also about 3 hours long.
