There are two main beaches in the center of Estepona:
Very central beach, 2630 m long, located along the Estepona board walk.
small 680m but busy beach in the summer with a couple of chiringuitos.
Located just after Estepona port heading towards Cadiz on the western
part of town. The cove which eliminates big waves makes the beach very
pleasant for little ones. Pedal boat hire available.

Mom's evaluation: Estepona has some really nice beaches and it´s not that far to get to from Marbella. It takes about 20 minutes to reach Estepona from Marbella, but it´s well worth the drive if you´re looking for clean sand, clear waters, and cozy chiringuitos (beach restaurant) that are less expensive than their Marbella counterparts. We really enjoy La Rada beach for its large stretches of golden sand and our favorite chiringuito Bikini Beach, which has great food and nice big sunbeds to hang out on with the kids with plenty of umbrellas around for shade. We also enjoy going to El Cristo beach for its nice clean sand, however this beach makes a great place for babies or little kids as there is a cove which eliminates large waves coming in. There is also a couple of chiringuitos on this beach where you can eat typical Spanish cuisine and rent lounge chairs. (June 2009) Grade: 9.5
