Estepona is a seaside resort located about 30 kilometres west of Marbella, dominated by the Sierra Bermeja. Estepona is a rich town not only because of its typical Andalusian beauty and its gardens, which distinguish it on the Costa del Sol, but also because of its beautiful coastline and its natural wealth.
The town is made up of the old village: small white houses and buildings of modern construction. The historical centre has narrow, steep and winding streets. Estepona has 21 km of coastline and many beaches. The two best known are those of the Rada in the town centre, about three kilometres, and the beach del Cristo, a bay located after the marina in the direction of Gibraltar. Most of the beaches have chiringuitos, restaurants on the sand where they serve Pescaito Frito, the fried fish, a speciality of Estepona.
Estepona's climate in summer is hot, with temperatures reaching around 35 °C. Winter temperatures are relatively mild during the day (around 15°C). The average annual temperature is around 18 °C. The coast has a subtropical Mediterranean climate, as does the entire Costa del Sol.
