Climate and weather in Estepona

Travel, Visit Estepona

Estepona is located in a fertile valley at the foot of the Bermejo Mountains. This place has about 325 days of sunshine per year, significantly above average for the region. Estepona is known as the garden of the Costa del Sol for a reason. You can already see it at the 1st roundabout, an opulence of jasmine and orange blossom, parks and green hiking trails full of flowers and palm trees.

Due to its unique location in the valley with the shelter of a real mountain range up to almost 1500 meters, Estepona has its own special micro-climate. It is greener and sunnier than anywhere else on the Costa del Sol.

The town of Estepona has it all, sun, sea, a harbour, beautiful beaches, hiking in the mountains, art & culture, architecture and gastronomy.

Our first day in Estepona was pretty grey and rainy but the town still looks gorgeous in the rain 😍 I mentioned some of my favourite streets in my post yesterday (check it out if you missed it) and this is one I mentioned – Calle San Antonio. I love this street for the glimpse of the church tower 😁 ✨ This church is known in full as ‘Parroquia de Nuestra Señora de los Remedios’ or in English, ‘Parish Church of Our Lady of Remedies’. Our lady of remedies is a title of the Virgin Mary (she has a fair few tbh) and other places with a church of the same name include Cholula in Mexico, Olutanga Island in the Philippines, Estremera in Spain and there is equally a similarly named church (with gorgeous architecture actually, I looked it up 😆) on Saipan, one of the Northern Mariana Islands. ✨ I also wanted to mention some of my favourite food and drink spots in Estepona too 😋 since one was on this very street! Save this post for food and drink recs when you visit 😉 🥘 Darcy’s Delicatessen – delicious tapas! The owners are lovely and they also have great wine too. 🥘 La Casa de Mi Abuela – amazing steakhouse! Huge portions, good value for money and delicious Argentinian steaks 😋 ☕️ Café de Theresa – great coffee and delicious toasts. The other dishes looked great too! Run by a lovely Dutch lady 😁 ☕️ Pastelería Honore – French style patisserie offering delicious pastries and cakes! Also they have excellent coffee 👌🏼 🍰 Granier – great spot for cake and/or a bocadillo (sandwich). The cherry cake was so good 😋 🍺 Lío Beach – nice beachfront bar. Cheap caña (small bear) 🍻 🍸 Manila Cafe Bar – great cocktails!! The Espresso Martini was great and @robert.blackburn recommends the mojito 😁 ✨ There are a few other places on my list for our next visit 😎 so if you’ve been to Estepona, let me know where else we should go! ✨ Do you like to try lots of different restaurants and cafes when you travel? Or do you try to keep to more of a budget and cook in your hostel or apartment if you can? ✨ #TFGinSpain #andalucia_turismo #estepona #topspainphoto #villages #kings_villages.

Estepona ❤ Instagrammer’s Paradise

I adored the décor of this charming former Andalusian fisherman’s cottage as soon as I walked in – an instagrammer’s paradise!
The house was a cross between a super-stylish Elle Decor cover and staying in a super-comfortable, cosy “home-from-home”.
