Kempinski Hotel Bahía is just five minutes from the historical centre of the beautiful town of Estepona, 20 minutes from Puerto Banús and Marbella and 40 minutes away from Gibraltar.
It is surrounded by the best golf courses in Spain. There are plenty of excellent attractions, such as Málaga, the birth place of Picasso, the Alhambra in Granada, the Giralda in Seville and even Morocco, as well as wonderful beaches.
This beach in Marbella is part of the Dunas de Artola-Cabopino Natural Monument.
It is a charming space where you will find beach bars and restaurants to enjoy lunch with views of the Mediterranean Sea, organised dolphin watching excursions, and much more. But what is most appreciated is the contact with nature.
The beach of Cabopino is surrounded by a line of dunes, where you can see the Torre de los Ladrones, a military and defensive construction dating from the Arab domination of Spain and which has been declared an Asset of Cultural Interest.

Historic centre of Estepona
One thing you should not miss before ending your visit is a stroll through the charming streets of Estepona's centre.
In addition to the incredible murals painted on some of the building façades, you can admire the spectacle of the white colour of the traditional Andalusian houses and their contrast with the colours of the millions of flowers that live in the streets.
Enjoying the scent of orange blossom while tasting a handmade ice cream is a real pleasure.
Maria José Sánchez,
Marbella life in the Central Market
Something as simple as visiting the Central Market in Marbella will become a unique experience.
Here you can see the traditional stalls with fresh and seasonal products, select the one you fancy the most and enjoy it in any corner.
You can also sit at one of its traditional bars that offer the possibility of cooking market products for you on the spot, accompanied by your favourite drink.
A sunset on the Paseo Marítimo
What I enjoy most about Estepona is strolling along the Paseo Marítimo any day of the week as the sun sets. It is quite a spectacle to see how the daylight changes colour against the backdrop of the Mediterranean Sea and Gibraltar.
Also, if the day allows it, you can see the African coast without any problem. After admiring the sunset, I recommend you to have dinner in one of the amazing restaurants that Estepona centre has to offer.
An afternoon on a sailing boat
In the marina of Estepona you can find different boat rental companies and sailing packages to enjoy a day at sea.
When we want to celebrate a special day, we rent a sailing boat and enjoy the sunset with canapés and champagne. Sometimes you can even meet dolphins along the way - it's quite a sight!
Route through Los Pedregales
This natural park is located in Estepona and is perfect to spend a day in nature with the family, where you can find hiking, multi-adventure and rest areas to enjoy a picnic.
Here you can find the hermitage of San Isidro Labrador and the Dolmens of Corominas, an archaeological site about 5000 years old that you can't miss.
Juan Miguel Galán,
The Spanish fir forest of Sierra Bermeja
Estepona is not only a beach resort. Here we have one of the few reserves of Spanish first in the world, and it is worth seeing.
You can go hiking or enjoy a walk among these beautiful trees; breathe in the fresh air and contemplate a unique view of the coast.

The Perfect Family Beach – Playa del Cristo
For the little ones who want to play in the sand or paddle in shallow water whilst the rest of the family enjoys a day at the beach bar, we recommend Playa del Cristo in Estepona. There are several chiringuitos to choose from, bathroom facilities and lifeguards. It is considered one of the safest beaches in the area.
The No Hassle Beach – El Velerin, Estepona.
This beach is ideal for the whole family of all ages, but you need to book during weekends, as it is a
very popular chiringuito. This is definitely the ‘bring a book’ and relax beach. Traditional Spanish seafood and a more general menu are offered. There is a quiet, friendly beach restaurant open for lunch and dinner.
Something Upmarket – Playa Real, Elvira La Plage Casanis, Marbella.
Set on the beautiful beach of Playa Real, this is a hippy and chic chiringuito with live music and DJs in the summer. This beach is geared towards friends and couples. The ambience is relaxed and chill, with a definite Ibiza vibe.
