With coastal charm and pueblo character, a chance to secure an Estepona property is always the right move. Let’s look at the the many advantages to owning a second home in the sun – in Estepona.
Swaying palms line the beachfront promenade, Paseo Maritimo. Beyond, lies the expanse of Playa de la Rada, the main beach of Estepona. A perfect setting for holidays, long lazy days on the beach, and evening strolls in the setting sun. But Estepona is not just a bucket and spade destination. There are numerous advantages to owning an Estepona property, either for holiday use, as a second income, or as your next permanent move.
Close to Málaga airport, your budget flight will leave you with just a short drive just over an hour along the AP-7. As a base, it’s an easy trip along the coastline to other resorts, or to the bright lights of Marbella. Various family attractions such as Selwo are close for visiting relatives and friends, as well as water parks and plenty of opportunity for shopping. Seek out the independent shops in town for clothing and goods, and gather robustly fresh provisions at the weekly market.
The sunshine is, of course, a big draw. The Mediterranean climate attracts visitors from all over the world to the Costa del Sol, searching for warm summer sunshine and mild winter temperatures. Forget the umbrella, all you’ll require is a parasol. Think of the savings on winter heating bills…
The beaches of Estepona attract local and visiting folk from far and wide. Choose from:
- La Rada Beach
- Playa del Cristo
- Costa Natura – if you find that you have forgotten your Speedo’s (it was the first naturist site in Spain).
There’s plenty to see in this resort, given its provenance. The name comes from the Moorish Al-extebunna, and in 1502 the town received it’s first charter. Mostly farmers and fishermen lived here at the beginning of the 20th century, and so generations of those same fishermen thrive today. The working port and marina is a lively place to see their toil unfold, and the seafood restaurants close-by are the best places to eat the catch of the day. Nuestra Senora de Los Remedios is a lovely old church where you can grab the best views, once you have climbed up.
Easily visit Ronda, Gibraltar, Nerja and Frigiliana from Estepona. Fancy another continent? Then take the ferry across to Tangier and haggle at the souk for soft furnishings to go in your Estepona holiday home.
