Estepona is a small coastal town at around 20km West of Marbella. The town has kept it´s authentic ambience with its narrow streets and white houses decorated with hundreds of colorful flowers.

There are two main beaches in Estepona: La Rada which goes along the promenade right opposite the old town and Playa del Cristo – a small charming beach near the Marina. Due to that many choose to live there permanently.
Right in the center of town you will find the beautiful “Orchidarium” an orchid museum displaying over 1300 species. The town has some lovely streets for shopping and many restaurants with different cuisines. The Marina of Estepona is beautiful and hosts a weekly flee market.
