This pretty little town is found near Malaga on the Costa Del Sol, and has access to 23km of coastline with the impressive Sierra Bermeja mountain range looming large in the background. It has also managed to conserve its Andalucian essence while many places around it are given over to tourism completely. Take a walk around the old quarter which runs parallel to the shore and the 18th Century ‘barrio de Hornos’. There are lots of things to do in the area, but away from the hustle and bussle of the typical Costa del Sol. Estepona is also well placed to get to Puerto Banús and Sotogrande.
Where to eat:
Typical cooking from Andalucía is your best bet here. From skewered sardines, fried boquerones to exquisite squid, combined with a cool Gazpacho. Let you taste buds go wild!
