Beaches in Estepona

- Playa Galera.jpg

Galera Beach

This 2 km long beach is bordered to the west by the promontory of Torre de la Sal and by the promontory of Bahia Dorada to the east. The beach is about 40 metres wide and is not overcrowded, as it is mainly used by the inhabitants of the neighbouring urbanisations. The promenade goes all the way to Manilva and Puerto de la Duquesa, crossing Casares.

Bahía Dorada Beach

This beach is about 700 metres long and 40 metres wide and is located in front of the urbanisation of the same name. A promenade has recently been built to protect the beach during winter storms. This beach has no access for cars.

- Costa Natura.jpg

Costa Natura Beach

This beach is about 500 metres long and is located in front of the Costa Natura complex and is an official naturist beach. Costa Natura, the first purpose-built naturist complex in Spain, is situated to the east of the town. The complex is for members only, but a season ticket is available for travelling nudists and the uninhibited or curious.

Arroyo Vaquero Beach

This beach is located between the Isla de Arroyo Vaquero and the Chiringuito el Nido. It is accessible by car from the Hotel Fuerte Estepona roundabout. The beach is approximately 1 kilometre long and 50 metres wide.

Guadalabon Beach

This beach hugs the entire Bay of Estepona, about 2 km of coastline, from Costa Natura to Punta Doncella. The colour of the sand is dark and its composition is mainly sand and gravel. It is an area of moderate waves. It has no promenade but the residents of the surrounding area take advantage of this beach to relax in total freedom.

- El Cristo.jpg

El Cristo Beach

This beach is located to the west of the marina, in a beautiful bay and due to its ideal orientation, the beach has more hours of sunshine and stunning views of Gibraltar. This beach is very popular and tends to get quite crowded during the summer weekends. The bay and the outer protective wall make the waters warmer. It has a very gentle slope and is very safe for children. There is a lifeguard post and in summer there are showers. The beach has a good, relaxed atmosphere, with music from the two beach bars, Havana Beach and Lolailo. In summer the parking at the back of the beach is chaotic and overcrowded so our advice is to park a little further out in the open countryside where there is always plenty of space and you can even camp.

- La Rada.jpg

La Rada Beach

In the centre of Estepona is the most popular beach in town, La Rada. It is a wide beach and has a modern promenade along its entire length (2.6 km). The sand is fine and golden. There are several chiringuitos (beach bars) serving traditional beach dishes and the old town is just across the "old coastal road". For parking there are two large underground garages. For the disabled, access here is better than on the other beaches. The beach ends at the eastern end with a promontory known as Punta de Plata.

Punta Plata Beach

This is a narrow beach 4 kilometres long and stretches along the Punta de Plata headland to El Padron, in the eastern part of Estepona. It stands out for its dark sand and its light waves that give it transparent and crystalline waters. In spite of having urbanisations around it, the beach does not have a very high level of occupation. Punta de la Plata usually has visitors from these residential areas and does not have many services, except for some areas.

- Padron.jpg

El Padron Beach

This popular beach is located just east of the Padron River, close to the Kempinski Hotel Resort. This beach is especially popular in summer and has a large car park, two beach bars, the Laguna Village (a small Balinese style shopping centre with fashion and decoration shops), a large selection of restaurants such as Terra Sana, Camuri Gril, Carmen and of course Puro Beach, a beach club with a large swimming pool, white sun loungers and fusion music DJ. El Padron beach has a high standard of cleanliness and facilities that are often recognised with the European Blue Flag award.

Beaches in El Velerin: Playa del Castor, Playa Arroyo De Los Cañas

These 3 beaches merge in the El Velerin area, extending on both sides of the Torre del Velerin. It is more than a kilometre long and 30 metres wide, with dark sand and calm waters. They are moderately crowded, which makes them a perfect place for a quiet holiday away from the big cities. They are easy to access and offer many services such as showers, toilets and sun loungers.

- Guadalmansa.jpg

Guadalmansa Beach / Playa Bella

A quiet, narrow and rocky beach. It is located next to the Health House Las Dunas and the TikiTano restaurant and lounge. With an old watchtower and ruins preserved in a large grassy beach area and promenade. Nearby there is a water sports school.

- Casasola Saladillo.jpg

El Saladillo Beach

A narrow beach, with greyish sand, but with an extension of approximately 3 kilometres which makes it one of the longest beaches in Estepona. On the promenade there are several beach bars and the Torre de Saladillo, an old watchtower, is "hidden" among the houses.

Casasola and Atalaya Beach

Casasola and Atalaya are a great sandy beach, being a magnificent bathing area both for its amplitude, the clarity and temperature of its waters, and for the landscape that surrounds it. Not forgetting the sporting offer in which tourists can enjoy the most attractive activities in the aquatic environment.
