ONE TO WATCH – Hot Locations Worth Your Attention

In this latest series of articles we’re exploring hot locations in the Costa del Sol worthy of your attention. Number one in the series is Estepona, which lies 75 km from Malaga airport between the sea and the Sierra Bermeja mountains. 

Regarded as the garden of the Costa del Sol for many, fabulous reasons, Estepona offers property buyers a truly unique opportunity. All kinds of folk make their way to see and experience the extensive delights Estepona has to offer, many return, and some stay put, deciding to buy.  

Whilst Estepona is not new, nor is it a down-and-out location on its uppers, it has proven to be a nicely, consistently improving area year after year.  I will confess, this is the location to tempt me away from my current home.  For what reason I hear someone ask, let me try to express my interest as to why Estepona should be on your list, dear reader, 

In recent times, Estepona has welcomed a new Mayor, and boy does this guy want to do right by his community.  You could call him a modern-day Robin Hood.  This action man has dug into every EU-funded project and delivered to his good citizens time and time again.  There is word that once the changes and improvements are finalised community taxes will be reduced greatly.  This is the type of politician we all need to guide communities, and your investment to headier heights.  We applaud you, Sir.  


Over the last twelve months, the entire front line has become pedestrian-friendly, with a newly constructed Paseo Maritimo / Boulevard / Promenade, call it what you will, that separates traffic and the hustle and bustle from the beach and leisure activities.  Nothing competes with the freedom of walking from the entrance at Bikini Beach to The Port and beyond without considering motor cars, scooters, or heavy goods vehicles.  It is a transformation par excellence.     


Estepona is home to an extensive display of nicely done, big, and small-scale artist murals that enhance the city.  The works can be seen on walls, bridges, mostly, on buildings.  It’s a must-see for those popping into Estepona for a day out and adds background value to those who live permanently or have a holiday home.  This gives the area a cultural edge that is seldom seen in Andalucía.  




Estepona is home to some modern community buildings and facilities.  For example, a world-class, mega-sized, Olympic-style sports centre. The much-visited Orchid Gardens are truly majestic and a must-see.  The fabulous Playa del Cristo beach area is one of a king and is better to experience in the real than to see in pictures.  There’s the epic Biblioteca (Library) and a Zoo where you can stay overnight.  These are a few of the many highlights.    


Plus, let’s not forget the many chiringuitos, evenly spaced along the beautiful sea and beachside settings.  There’s an equally impressive port, where you will find the multi-award-winning Don Marino Boat dealer and a whole host of class-leading restaurants.  All in all, they make up a true café society feel throughout – and with few peers.  


Lastly, we or I could go on, Estepona’s location to Gibraltar and Tarifa is unmatched, twenty minutes to Puerto Banus, an hour to the airport via the toll, not too far from Benahavis, a whole host of world-leading golf courses, top tier water sports and super shopping days out in Marbella and La Canada. All in all, a great place to live, to invest, and to retire.  Count me in.
