WHAT TO DO
The town has several museums that we can visit. Very interesting is The Tool Museum that houses all kinds of implements which regularly used in fishing and agricultural works. Later and after visiting the Clock Tower or the ruins of the Nicio Castle, we can seat and rest in the nice Flowers Square.
A good moment to visit Estepona is during the Fiestas Mayores (3 - 10 of July). Also the Virgen del Carmen religious celebration (16 of July) is celebrated with a procession with many little fishing boats.
Estepona has a wonderful marina ESTEPONA PUERTO DEPORTIVO with capacity to 900 boats, located near the centre of town, and as night falls it is transformed into crowded and enjoyable night-spot.
The surroundings of Estepona are propitious for the practice of adventure and mountain sports. In addition it has an ESCUELA DE ARTE ECUESTRE founded in 1998 and located at 800 meters from the beach and not far from Sierra Bermeja.
