Sands and sunsets
There’s more than meets the eye on luxury holidays to Estepona. It’s home to the Blue Flag beaches and pretty streets full of shops and restaurants British holidaymakers love, with its old town the cherry on top and a must for explorers. Behind the whitewashed buildings and many facilities which fringe the golden sands of the Costa del Sol there are plenty of unique discoveries to make in this pretty town. Visit the Old Quarter where you’ll find pretty squares bordered by cafés, restaurants and tapas bars, admire the 16th Century clock tower or take in the idyllic churches.
Both families and couples will love holidays to Estepona. There are chic bars and a few clubs for the evening, as well as botanical gardens full of spectacular species of flora and fauna to explore during the day. Playa de la Rada is one of the town’s Blue Flag beaches and offers plenty of space to stretch out, while Playa del Cristo is in the quieter end of town. If you prefer to watch the smart yachts and little fishing boats the marina is the perfect place to spend the day.

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