General facilities: The apartment building sits within well manicured gardens. The entrance is through a secure door with intercom communications for access and two lifts taking you to the fourth floor.
A double pool (main and paddling) looks towards the port and the sea beyond from within the communal gardens. There are two outdoor showers and sun parasols. We provide beach towels and light folding chairs to be used in the communal gardens.
You will have a reserved private parking spot in a secure underground garage which is also served by the lifts.
Immediate vicinity: The building is a very short downhill walk to all the restaurants, shops, pubs and activities in the port. Although the apartment does offer Wifi, there are free hotspots in several of the friendly restaurants in the port. 'De La Mar' is our favourite. There are two good supermarkets within a 5 minute walk and a government tourist office across the street. A bus stop is literally outside the building and a taxi stand can be found at the roundabout by the port entrance.
At the eastern end of the port, where the fishing boats moor is the 'Los Escolleros'. This fish restaurant is a must. Only open during the day and closed on Mondays, it mainly caters to the local residents and is very noisy but serves the best seafood ever.
The closest beach is the Playa Del Cristo which is small, sandy, shallow and safe. It is a Blue Flag beach and has a full range of facilities with beach restaurants (chiringitos), lifeguard posts, changing rooms, showers, first aid and wheel chair access. Loungers and umbrellas can be rented. These facilities apply to all Estepona beaches.
Towards Estepona: On the eastern side of the port, starting at Los Escolleros, the longer Playa De La Rada Beach begins at the port and stretches nearly 3 kilometres east to the town of Estepona. This is also a Blue Flag beach. The Paseo Maritimes walkway escorts the La Rada beach its entire length with seating and covered areas making the 20 minute walk into town both relaxing and picturesque. Why not stop along the way for a drink and tapas?
Festivals and celebrations stretch from February through August.
The tourist office across the road from the apartment has a full selection of upcoming activities and attractions.
