  • . The marina in Estepona is a favourite spot of many people, until late in the night and early morning in summer, as the bars and restaurants are open late late late. But it's also a pleasant place in the daytime, as those same bars and restaurants are open for a cooling drink and a wee rest. By the way, it's probably best not to try to come here by car, although there is one carpark. If you do want to park, drive down the main entrance to the marina, turn first right and go to the end of the row of shops. The carpark is on the left, it's paying and pricey. The parking spaces along the road are mainly privately owned. Otherwise, get there on foot. Stroll along the Paseo Maritimo - check the reviews. At the very end you'll come to two rows of fishermen's huts, walk between them. At the right time of year you'll see Flying Fish hanging up to dry, and on most days people mending nets. At the end of these huts there's the La Escollera restaurant: read the reviews of that, and decide when you're coming back to eat the freshest fish ever! Veer sort of right by the Escollera, and then take the road on the left. You'll come there to a building with a sort of, well, I don't know how to describe it! A sort of piazza on top. It is the flat roof of a harbour building that has been recently beautified, with some shade and places to sit and admire the view. The places to sit are metal and wood chairs, carefully sited so that when you are sitting down you cannot talk to the person sitting next to you. :-) There's a little bar there,open in summer, called Vitin del Puerto. Walk up onto this flat space for a good view of the Marina (to your right) and the Fishing Port (straight ahead). You may even see a boat coming in, followed by a flock of seagulls as it brings its catch to unload at the "Lonja" - the wholesale fish market. See how close it is to La Escollera? That's why its fish is so fresh! Continue along that little road to the beginning of the Marina. The boats here are not on the same Billionaire scale as in Puerto Banus. They are just boats owned by people richer than you or me, I guess. But it's nice to potter around looking at them, buying an ice-cream in the lovely ice-cream parlour in the Control Tower, stopping for a coffee or a beer. There is also here an enormous choice of restaurants. Italian, Indian, Chinese, general international cuisine. You won't go hungry, although it's mainly not very typically Spanish, if that's what you are looking for. But if your teenagers are moaning that they are being cruelly force-fed paella and gambas al ajillo, and thus being deprived of Chicken Jalfreezi, Pizza Marinara or Sweet and Sour Prawns, then this is the place! If you should happen to have any stale bread in your pocket, you can throw bits into the water to attract a crowd of fish, some quite large - nearly two feet long. These fish are called Lisas in Spanish - no idea what the English is. They are inedible as they are scavengers in ports, but it's fun to watch them scrambling for the lumps of bread. On Sunday mornings there's a market here which is generally very popular; they even have coach-loads of OAPs coming from 20 or 30 miles away some weeks. Clothes, watches, sunglasses, jewellery (some nice silver stuff on a couple of stalls), CDs, belts, toys, leatherwear, paintings, hats and of course bags. The bars are packed on those days, so if you just want to sit at a terrace and nurse a cappuccino while you watch the folk go by, get there early. .
  • Beautiful harbor both the fishing as the yacht.
