BARS, boats, restaurants and much more. Estepona port may not have the same glamour as nearby Puerto Banus but there is just as much fun to be had.
Without a Gucci bag or Rolex in sight, the port offers everything from high-end restaurants to classic Irish bars, catering for all tastes in between.
While the old town captures a true sense of traditional Spain, the port is the embodiment of the expat community that has brought rise to the Costa del Sol.
And it is not just the Brits that have jumped on the port’s band wagon. All types of cuisine are imaginable in the cosmopolitan tower of babel that is Estepona port. Thai, Indian, Chinese, Italian etc. etc. are all on offer.
Restaurants worth a special mention include Plan B – run by German couple Veronika and Oscar, celebrating one year in the port – which specialises in Goan gastronomy, fusion tapas and healthy breakfasts. A bar-cum-restaurant, Plan B is a great place to enjoy a cocktail or fresh juice in a relaxed atmosphere.
And if it is international food that whets your palette, then look no further than De la Mar.
Run by Dutch couple Helene and Pim since June last year, De la Mar offers dishes from around the world, including everything from English breakfasts and Sunday lunches to grilled meat and fish.
But if it is a slap up meal you are after, Restaurante Limonero will not let you down.
Well established in the port as the perfect place for special occasions, Limonero uses local ingredients for its ever-changing menu.
The newest kid on the block is recently opened Irish Bar Healy Macs. Located slap bang in the middle of the port, the bar is already proving popular with locals and expats.
With a big terrace area and outward facing TV’s, Healy Macs will no doubt be the number one location for watching the Euros this summer.
But it is not just food and drink to be had in the port. Every Sunday a market stretches throughout the lower level of the port offering everything from designer sunglasses to leather goods and Moroccan trinkets.
Boat tours are also big in Estepona port with trips leaving numerous times a day. Among those offering tours is Sotoboats. Dedicated to all aspects of sailing, the company offers boats of any size and feature to suit the customer, by it to rent or buy.
And if you fall head over heels with port life then Melrose properties can help you find your perfect portside pad.
