Estepona holidays offer the classic beach break you may expect of this swathe of Spain; there’s stretches of too-good-to-leave golden sands, restaurants oozing with authentic Spanish character, and a laid-back atmosphere enjoyed by families, couples and locals alike.
The charming old town, all whitewashed buildings and winding lanes, is a great place for a wander in the shade. Soak up the town’s artistic vibe – there’s walking routes past outdoor installations and incredible street art here – before enjoying a drink in a buzzing plaza.
By the water, pitch your umbrella on one of Estepona’s sandy beaches or hire a sun lounger from a chiringuito beach bar. Snorkelling gear, surfboards and stand-up paddleboards are also available.
For a bit of an adventure, head into the Sierra Bermeja mountains. They are the town’s spectacular backdrop, and you can drive almost to the summit within an hour. If you want to get moving, strap on your boots for a hike through the Spanish fir trees, resin pines and soaring oaks. For the longest hikes, a refugio mountain hut is available for overnight stays.
Located in the Costa del Sol, Estepona holidays put you in the middle of the action for interesting day trips. Explore a picturesque old town, stroll around the swanky marina and check out Salvador Dalí’s bronze waterfront sculptures in the chic city of Marbella – it’s just a half-hour drive away. Or, head in the opposite direction to Gibraltar to see the famous Rock, monkeys and Great Siege Tunnels.
Back in town, the nightlife is more relaxed than other resorts nearby (namely Marbella), with friendly bars and restaurants offering cheap drinks and tempting Spanish delicacies. For something a little livelier, there are cocktail bars and a few nightclubs at the port, often hosting live music.
