The area around Estepona & Sotogrande is known for its luxury villas, world class marina and 5 golf courses. It’s a place where the world’s elite discreetly enjoy the Costa del Sol away from the hurly-burly of Marbella and the central Costa del Sol with its towering hotel blocks crammed hard up against the beach.
This part of the Costa del Sol is less developed than its eastern neighbours, and it benefits from a dramatic mountain backdrop, spectacular sea views and lush greenery. This makes it one of the most sought after locations in Spain for luxury properties. It is also home to some of the most exclusive neighbourhoods on the western Costa del Sol, with their proximity to the sandy coast and amazing panoramic views.
Estepona itself has retained its traditional Andalusian character, with cobbled streets, a fishing port and Spanish cafes spilling out higgledy piggledy onto the pavements. It also has a luxurious Puerto deportivo (leisure port) and marina, fabulous beaches, top class restaurants and excellent tourist facilities.
The inland hills offer spectacular natural landscapes, while the beautiful marina at Duquesa is a fantastic base to explore the surrounding area by sea and land. The nearby beaches of Los Reales and Elviria are a short drive away, as is the stunning Bohemian beach town of Tarifa. Gibraltar is under an hour’s drive, while Cadiz and Jerez are also accessible in under two hours. If you prefer to leave the car at home, there is an extensive bus service between Estepona and Sotogrande, with connections to La Linea for Gibraltar. Consult our bus timetables for details.
