    My wife and I caught the bus to Estepona when staying along the coast in Puerto Banus.
    We spent a few hours in the old town and found it utterly charming. Very pedestrian-friendly, with colourful floral displays and full of elegant squares and narrow streets.
    Plenty of eating places and bars to take in the atmosphere whilst enjoying a glass of sangria and a snack.

    Very clean Zoo and friendly staff. Lot's of animals to see with out 4 and 2 year old.

    Price - What you would expect to pay for a safari/zoo.

    Gift shop is small but enough. We purchased the picture the member of staff took, as we came in but they were not pushy about this.

    Did not eat onsite, but we purchased slushy drinks which were nice.

    We only encountered two sets of toilets which was not enough, as they were at either end of the park.

    Be prepared to walk, as it is a very large site.

    Parking was also 5 euros.

    Definitely worth including in your itinerary of Old Town Estepona, even if just passing through rather than enjoying a drink or meal in the selection of restaurants.

    My brother and sister in law were staying and they wanted to visit this. Only 3€ to get in and there is a huge variety of Orchids of all colours and sizes.

    I have no idea of how much money Estepona has spent in the recent years to make the paeseo so nice but for sure money we’ll spent. It is simply amazing, very wide. Full of access to the beach, of activities (playgrounds, chess) and shadow areass.

    Visited the marina for a non dolphin sight seeing tour. Loved the boat trip even without the sight or mention of the dolphins it was beautiful. Tour ended at 4 and no where to eat - all restaurants had close the kitchens for the afternoon and so not re-open until 6. Ice cream parlour was the only option 😂 good selection and variety of eateries. No hassle from restaurants or from tour reps which was hood.

    We had booked a group visit and were met by our guide, Juanjo, who spoke perfect English. The visit lasted 2 hours and it was so interesting. Everything is so well presented, the artefacts and the 5 reconstructed dolmens, all found when the motorway was being made. We learned so much about life 4/5 thousand years ago. Amazing! It is recommended to pre-book a visit, which is a bit off the beaten track. Do not miss this fabulous museum!

    I did this over two days. I really enjoyed it. The murals are great. A map of Estepona and a small map with all the murals are available in the tourist office in the old town.

    Playa de la Rada is such a tease. If you want a Long Beach to walk either in the sand or on the adjacent promenade, I’d say this beach is rated 5 stars.

    If you want a beach to swim at, if my visit in September is typical, then you’re not going to be happy. Very rocky. Surf action is fairly high (too much for kids for sure) but it probably would be doable if you get in and out of the surf fairly quickly. But rocky bottom doesn’t allow for that.

    Some reviews say it is possible with water shoes on but I’ve been here 2 days and haven’t seen anyone swimming yet. But great to have a long walkable beach right in town and the Senda Litoral (coastal path) means you have other beaches to choose from ( many also very rocky)

    We very nearly did not visit due to previous reviews especially as we were a 20 euro taxi drive away but we are glad we took a chance!

    The sand is grey which can take some getting use to especially as it means the water close to the shore is not clear but go out 2-3metres and you will see how clear the water is, the sand is pure sand no stones and very little debris, there is a lot of seaweed but it is the sea!

    Excellent for children to play in as it’s very shallow, go out 10 metres or so and it gets deeper.

    Pedals, kayaks & paddle boards available to hire at a reasonable cost.

    There are 2 restaurants both serving excellent food and both offer cabanas 50 euros per day and sun beds 10 euros per day, however, you do not need to hire them there is ample space for you to set up your own stuff for a day at the beach, the locals use this beach they tend to come in the morning, leave around lunch time and return late afternoon, it does get busy but the beach is big enough to accommodate everyone and the atmosphere is friendly and family orientated!

    We found the beach very clean!

    Fantastic place especially as we were total beginners (2 adults and 2 children -7&9). The horses were very relaxed. The scenery on the trek was stunning. Fred and Sabine expertly guided us through it all. 100% recommend.

    When looking to celebrate Mass in this part of Malaga, this is a great choice. The interior is quite cheerful and pretty. Both the walk from the municipal parking garage or from the paseo is charming as Estepona is quaint and easily walkable. We live about 20KM west and come here often for evening Mass on Sunday’s. Not being fluent in Spanish, can’t comment on homily quality. There’s beauty in the Mass no matter where we travel or whateverthe local language.
