What to do in Estepona

Estepona is synonymous with sand, sun, party-going, deep-fried fish and a cool beer by the sea, sports and nature, lying in the sand, dancing till the wee hours, fashionable clubs and bars. Not far away from the exclusive, lively Puerto Banús, it has plans for visitors with a wide variety of interests and budgets, who will all have a wonderful, fun, original holiday on the Costa del Sol.

Experiences in Estepona: What to do

  • Historical tours: Estepona is home to some of the most interesting archaeological sites on the Costa del Sol. They can be visited on guided tours or self-guided excursions. Las Torres is worth a half-day visit: a genuine fishing village from the days of the Roman Empire. The ruins of the Nicio Castle and the dolmens in Corominas are worth visiting too.
  • Safaris: On foot or by jeep, if you are coming to Estepona with children you must visit Selwo Aventura – a theme park and zoo where animals are kept in semi-captive environments. Covering about 100ha, the park recreates the animals’ habitats.
  • A stroll among the orchids: Estepona’s recently opened botanical garden is the perfect place to escape hot weather and relax far from the beach. There are clearly signposted trails that will take you along an enjoyable hike marked by key botanical elements, like water or orchids. The garden houses thousands of plants and trees from all over the world.
  • Beer and tapas by the sea: Being one of the main tourist resorts in Málaga, Estepona sticks to some of the Costa del Sol’s best-known traditions. The beaches are peppered with lovely beach bars where you can have a beer and tapas to beat the heat. Most of the bite-size dishes carry traditional Andalusian flavours, like olives, or a taste of the sea, the star being, of course, pescaíto frito (deep-fried fish, usually anchovies or sardines).
  • Dinner in the old town: Estepona’s finest cuisine is to be found in the old town. There is probably no better plan to bring your day to a close than having dinner in one of the many taverns with street tables. Eating alfresco in the cool Andalusian evening, in an atmosphere pervaded by the smell of flowers, is a pleasure that visitors with a delicate palate will certainly enjoy.
  • Flamenco evening at Felipe VI Concert Hall: One of Estepona’s newest cultural centres, the Felipe VI Concert Hall puts on flamenco shows on a regular basis, in an effort to support one of Andalusia’s fundamental cultural expressions. You can also come for an exhibition or a play. It will be an evening to remember.
