Estepona Holiday in Andalucia

Updated on April 25, 2013

Estepona Holiday in Andalucia

Estepona is a delightful Spanish Town on the southern coast of Spain midway between Marbella and Gibraltar.

Whilst many areas of the southern coast have become overly touristy for some, Estepona retains an authentic Spanish ambience whilst welcoming visitors from around the globe.

Within Estepona there is the "Old Town" with its cobbled streets, the beautiful blue flag "La Rada" beach which runs the length of the town and the Fishing Port and Leisure Marina at the western end of the town.

Altogether, Estepona is a wonderful vacation destination and I am always happy to return again.
