Prepare to be impressed by exquisite Estepona
If you visit the beaches at Estepona and look all around you, you’ll soon realise why it’s so popular with both visiting tourists and permanent residents alike. The town offers 21km of glorious beaches, crystal clear sea water and a fabulous selection of bars and restaurants, not to mention plenty of retail therapy to be had in the surrounding streets.
There was a time when Estepona was perhaps overshadowed by the glitz and glamour of Marbella, but these days it has earned a reputation in its own right for being a paradise for those who seek the good life. Whatever you might be looking for from your move to Spain, the chances are you will find it in the town or its outlying villages.
Getting in and out of Estepona is relatively easy, with the city of Malaga some 90km from here by the main AP-7 road. Malaga’s international airport offers several flights per day to various destinations in the UK, so if you have visitors coming over it will be easy to meet them at the arrivals hall. If you don’t drive, you can get a bus to Fuengirola then a train into Malaga.
You’ll be able to enjoy an active life here should you want to. Estepona is home to a number of excellent clay tennis courts, there’s a comprehensive selection of water-sports available at the beach and several health clubs such as the Centro Deportivo Las Mesas. And if you love playing golf you’ve definitely come to the right place, because six superb courses are to be found here.
Property options to suit all tastes and all pockets
The property scene in and around Estepona is buzzing, so you can expect to find plenty of options when you start searching for a new home. There are a number new apartment developments to consider as well as a superb selection of new villas featuring all the amenities you’d expect from one of Spain’s most popular locations. And you’ll be pleased to know that obtaining a Spanish mortgage isn’t difficult if you have the right guidance from the experts.
As well as being able to enjoy all the pleasures of the waterfront when you live here, you should make sure you find the time to explore the interior. The Costa del Sol region plays host to a number of delightful inland villages, and several of them are within easy reach of Estepona. They include Gaucín, a pretty Andalusian mountain hideaway that’s just a 40-minute drive away.
