Another charming square in Estepona, there seems to be one at every corner! This one has a large fountain in the middle. Warning if you are travelling with children: it is perfectly reachable by little hands, and they will be standing by and dabbling their hands in no time! Wet shorts, dresses and t-shirts are guaranteed. There is also one of the (fairly) famous Estepona statues, there must be 50 of them all round town, plus of course an excellent choice of places to eat and drink. We like the Brasas de Alberto, specializing in fabulous meat, or the Bar Chanchalay for more informal but equally delicious dining. Whichever you choose, or even if you just decide to sit on a bench and listen to the tinkle of the fountain, this is a good spot to be in.…

The entrance also has several "flower towers", a few of several dozen all along the seafont, bringing colour and delight wherever you go. The square itself has a fountain in the middle, one which it is quite easy for children to dabble their fingers, and also on windy days to get a little spray. They love it! There are often small children wizzing around on little scooters while their parents sit at the tables under the palm trees. Because this square is all about eating, drinking, chatting with friends. Hard to say which is our favourite. Bar Tolone does great shakes, smoothies and alcohol-free drinks, as well as all sorts of beer, wines, hard drinks, soft drinks, tea and coffee. The Chanchalay bar, run by a delightful South American couple, serves great tapas and burgers at excellent prices. Las Brasas de Alberto at the back of the square is the to-go place for outstanding meat, or a special-occasion meal. And other places too, different types of restaurants and bars, including a very popular cocktail bar, La Bulla, on the seafront corner. You're just spoilt for choice! Just stroll around looking and see what you fancy. It's usually buzzing.…

Took a little walk around the town, beautiful Spanish houses for a local taste. With an estimated 3km of beach along the way. Sunny and nice weather for to spend you evening and end with dinner.
