This area has many winding streets, nice shops and restaurants. Most of the buildings are well-preserved. You’ll often find a nice, friendly place to eat here. Or just a quiet bench to sit down and relax.

Behind the seafront and the promenade you'll find a maze of narrow streets with white painted houses and plant pots on the walls. Each street has it's own colour pots full of flowers and it's absolutely beautiful. Just like stepping back in time.

Estepona has a great little old town, just set back from the seafront. Typical of the area, with narrow streets and lots of al fresco dining. We were there just after New Year and during the Three Kings festival (Epiphany) so lively, warm and with...More

The narrow streets are truly amazing with cobblestone, ornaments and planted flowers in colorful pots on the walls of the houses of each street...........one street/alley will have the same color of pots throughout, blue, pink or a mix of all.....- Fascinating !

This is the old part of the town and a joy to walk around. You will see beautifully maintained homes in an array of colours. Plenty of eating/drinking establishments. Only about 45mins from gibraltar.

Estepona old town is the only authentic traditional flower-bedecked white-washed town on the southern Costa del Sol coastline, and every bit as charming as the famous hill-top white villages we all love, even on a wet Thursday morning in November! I had previously visited in...More

The historic centre of Estepona is pleasant but small. It's a nice place to be but certainly not worth traveling to Estepona to see. The historic centres of Sevilla and Granada are much more extensive.

Hi Janice I would say it’s about 20/30 mins, and in the heat may be best to get a taxi. That is what we did en route back from a day out at Pueto Buenos. I loved Estepona, especially the market on a Weds and Sun. Ros
