Growing Popularity of Estepona

Here at Property Experience Group, we have been selling homes in Estepona for many years, way before it was known by the majority of Costa del Sol visitors. Back in the 60's ad 70's, the only location on anyone’s mind was the luxury resort of Marbella. With its famous Golden Mile and the emergence of Puerto Banus, why would anybody want to head west to Estepona? After all it was just a Spanish town!

But THAT is now the charm of Estepona. Despite undergoing some major refurbishment and the development of rural areas of land into residential, Estepona has managed to retain all of its original charm and authenticity.

The main town is located right on the beach front with its long promenade lined one side by beach bars and chiringuitos, and the other side by shops, cafes and restaurants. The beachfront property in Estepona town is exactly what you would imagine for an authentic Andalucian fishing town. Apartments above the shops and small hostels and hotels look out across the road to the sea, and remain very popular with the Spanish as a ‘pied-a-terre’ by the coast.

Behind these is a street that runs parallel with the promenade and this is lined both sides with an array of shops, boutiques, cafes, restaurants and different types of businesses. As you head west along this street you will eventually end up the very pretty square which is the entrance to old town Estepona.

Further west still, but all within walking distance of the main town, is the functional fishing port and marina. Although not quite Puerto Banus, there are still some beautiful yachts and boats moored there. The main marina is very decorative and pretty with lots of great seafood and fish restaurants and other cuisines. The marina in Estepona is also home to the market, held every Sunday.

The 'area' of Estepona is much larger than just the town, with the New Golden Mile now a popular area for buyers. It is also where many of the new developments are now being built, many of which are modern contemporary projects.

Estepona is now an equal force to Marbella when it comes to popularity and choice of properties for sale. It offers a real alternative to the busier areas of the coast and is within easy reach of the main Costa del Sol resorts.
