Estepona, Costa del Sol

Luxury Estepona Holidays

Sands and sunsets


One of the Costa del Sol's original summer holiday spots, Estepona has a reputation for world-class beaches and year-round sunshine. Against the backdrop of the towering Sierra Bermeja mountains, Estepona's classic Mediterranean good looks attract a sun-seeking crowd.

The twin Blue Flag beaches stretch for miles, both with plenty of space for a swim and sunbathe. The main beach, Playa de la Rada, is a hive of activity, offering up a fantastic watersports scene and a tree-lined promenade.

Beyond the beach, Estepona still feels small-town and traditional, thanks to its narrow streets lined with quaint houses. The waterfront is home to bars and restaurants where you can grab a cold beer and try the local paella, and is the place to be post-sunset.

Estepona is so close to Gibraltar, it would be a shame not to visit. Full of history (including the World War II tunnels) and home to the famous Barbary apes, it really is a unique place.

When to go

With a name that translates as the Sunshine Coast, it’s no surprise that this slice of Spain gets over 300 days of sun a year. Things start to heat up in the spring, with temperatures nudging the 20s, while in the height of summer, the mercury often tops 30°C.

Visa Information

Currently visas are not required for UK citizens travelling to Spain.


Restaurant bills include a service charge by law in Spain, so whether you choose to tip further is up to you. If you enjoyed the meal and service, it is customary to leave 5-10%. Hotel porters and maids will appreciate a small tip, and while taxi drivers don’t require a tip, it’s common to round up the fare.

Introduction to languages

The official language of Spain is Spanish. English is widely spoken too, so getting by is easy.
