Puerto Paraiso is ideally situated overlooking the marina in the heart of Estepona's thriving fishing port & marina. Cristo Beach (5 minutes west of the apartment) is a delightful oyster-shaped cove of sheltered, gently shelving sand, ideal for children and La Rada Beach (5 minutes East of the apartment) runs for 2km past the old town and is a lovely walk along the promenade (Paseo Maritimo). For many years both beaches have been awarded EC Blue Flag status for cleanliness and safety and in high season are manned daily with lifeguards. They also have well maintained toilet and shower facilities and a choice of chiringuitos (beach front restaurants) with a true Spanish feel. Ideal for spending a full day on the beach!
Within a few minutes walk you will find several supermarkets and shops and the local tapas bars and restaurants are situated in Estepona Marina an easy 2 minutes walk away.
Estepona, due to its natural environment, surrounded by the sea and Sierra Bermeja mountains, enjoys a microclimate with over 325 days of sunshine per year and also lovely mild winters. A perfect escape for some winter sun.
Estepona has many facets which makes it a popular holiday destination for those looking for a relaxing break to unwind, eat well, have a cool drink and chill out people watching. It has 2 EC Blue Flag beaches, a popular marina area with many tapas bars and restaurants and a lovely white walled town with a pedestrianised shopping area. All within a 10 minute walk.
Some areas of interest that you may wish to visit are:
Gibraltar - Only 35 minutes drive from Estepona (amd on the local bus route), Gibraltar is a sunny, VAT-free haven where you can find duty free bargains from electronic equipment & jewellery to leather & perfumes & haggling is encouraged! Make sure you don't miss the spectacular natural caverns of St. Michael's Caves or visit the Ape's Den, home to some of Gibraltar's famous Barbary Apes, the only free-to-roam primates in Europe. Watch out for monkey business as they can be mischievous and have been known to pick the occasional pocket looking for treats.
Puerto Banus - Puerto Banus is about 25 minutes drive away. It has a large number of designer stores including Versace and Armani. Perfect for millionaire spotting and you may also see a famous face in the port as a number of Hollywood stars have summer homes there.
Laguna Village - A stunning high class shopping experience just 10 minutes drive away. Whether spending an extravagant day at the beach club, shopping in the designer stores or spending time in the luxurious bars and restaurants then Laguna Village (www.laguna-village.com) is the ideal place.
Selwo Safari Park - Only 20 minutes drive away and on the public transport route, Selwo is ideal for the perfect family day out. The park is based on an African safari park and houses 2000 animals from giraffes to panthers in semi-wild conditions. Like Jurassic Park, large open sided lorries drive you through the various animal enclosures and up into the hills above Estepona. There are elephants, bears, hippos and so much more to see. In the summer, cover up as it can get very hot and there is not much shelter.
Golf - There are over 20 courses within a 45 minute drive. The local Estepona Golf Club (www.esteponagolf.com) is reasonably priced between 20 - 60 euro's for a round and the Sunday Express regarded their greens as some of the best on the Costa Del Sol. Also Monte Mayor Golf and Country Club (www.montemayorgolf.laperlainternationalliving.com) with its exciting fairway winding through dramatic gullies, ravines and streams, offers a superb challenge to even the most experienced golfers.
Also trips to beautiful Ronda, Tarifa and Casares are recommended if you have time. Or why not try Tangiers, North Africa which is only a 30-45 minute ferry crossing away.
