Ah, Estepona! One of the last remaining coastal charmers that has managed to defy the ticking clock, holding onto its uniquely Spanish allure like a cherished heirloom. Imagine stepping into a time machine that takes you back to the Spain of the 70s. Its cobbled streets echo with the rhythm of flamenco, and the air is rich with the tantalising aroma of tapas and other delectable Spanish treats. It's a small town with a big heart, increasingly finding favour among buyers who yearn for a slice of Spain that’s as authentic as an Abuela’s paella.
However, underestimate Estepona at your peril! Like a seasoned flamenco dancer resting between vigorous performances, Estepona merely seems to be napping during the day. As the sun dips into the sea, the town shakes off its daytime tranquillity, transitioning into a pulsating hub of nightlife. Bars and restaurants spring to life, their warm glow illuminating the ancient streets, and a merry mixture of locals and tourists create a melodic symphony of laughter and chatter, all celebrating the intoxicating Spanish way of life.
Don't forget to swing by the port while you're here. It's not just a hub of activity but a delightful hodgepodge of shops, bars, and restaurants offering treats that won’t have your wallet crying for mercy, a rarity on the Costa del Sol. It's like finding a hidden tapas menu with prices from yesteryears in a world where everything else has caught up with inflation.
So, whether you're a history enthusiast, a foodie, a night owl, or simply someone searching for an authentic Spanish experience, Estepona is a haven of cultural richness and traditional charm, eagerly awaiting your discovery.
