Estepona overview

Estepona conserves the essence of a typical Andalusian village with old constructions, like the San Luis Castle, built during the 16th century or the Clock Tower, from the 15th century and of Arabic origin.

Estepona’s old quarter is characterised by its narrow streets, that still maintain the original route from the 18th century, although many of its buildings are from before this time.


After dinner at one of the many restaurants, you can enjoy an intense nightlife, from the countless bars in the Marina, to any of the clubs we have in our city, which attracts all sorts of people. If that is not enough for you, you can always mix the night with Puerto Banus which is not far away.

The main action takes place in two places of Estepona: the port and city center. Many tourists prefer in the first place to have a closer look at the port and the promenade. Here you will find many bars and restaurants where you can enjoy a delicious meal before having a drink or another.

Although there are many places to go in the port, the city centre remains the best place to go at night. Right behind the street corners and in alleyways you will find a large number of pubs, bars and clubs.Your night should start in the popular Plaza de los Flores square.

Estepona itself belongs to the smaller towns in the region, but bars and clubs here extend into Benahavís, Costa Natura, Benavista and beyond. Benahavís, for example, is only 15 minutes
