One of the places you cannot miss on the Costa del Sol is Estepona. A typically Andalusian city centre, the exuberance of the flowers in the streets and marina full of water sports – Estepona has it all. It is with good reason that 5,000 Britons have chosen this town to reside in.
Discovering the streets of Estepona
Walk through the old town of Estepona and let yourself be seduced by the beauty of its white houses, its corners full of charm and the colorful flower pots hanging from balconies and walls.
Estepona’s love for flowers is also visible in the Orchidarium, a space with more than 5,000 plants that has 1,300 species of orchids, the largest collection in Europe and one of the most important in the world.
And of course, Estepona is also a great destination for golf. In the town you will find many courses, such as El Coto Golf, Club de Golf Estepona, Valle Romano Golf, El Campanario Golf, El Paraiso Golf Club or Atalaya Golf.
A very naval type tourism
Estepona has a close relationship with the Mediterranean Sea. The traditions of the fishermen, the pleasures of sailing, the unrivalled sea landscape and the idiosyncrasies of a people with seafaring vocation. In the marina you will find many leisure options and activities to enjoy the sea, such as boating, fishing or diving.
A good example is the Marine Tourism, based at the marina of Estepona, which offers fantastic routes and boat trips along the coast. Some of these activities are truly original, like the Seafood Route, a new experience to learn the art of catching shellfish. With this tour, you will discover the whole process that revolve around this world, from the sea to the kitchen, through the uniqueness of the tender at the fish market.
You can visit the waters of Estepona where these products are more abundant, see the marine farms where they are grown, and of course, taste some of their delicious specialties.
