Estepona, Spain was about a one hour drive from the airport in Malaga. We decided to stay on the outskirts of Estepona because of its vicinity to the beach and the wedding we were attending at El Cortijo de los Caballos in Benahavís. Once we arrived, we immediately walked to the supermercado for some snacks and sangria and went to check out the beach. It was pretty rocky and not ideal for ‘a day at the beach’ but still nice.
Unfortunately, this was a quick trip and we only had 2 days for exploring. One day was spent wandering through Ronda, Spain and the other was spent exploring the old city of Estepona. What an adorable city! Small cobblestone streets, white-washed buildings, picturesque squares, geraniums galore and tapas bars on every corner… what’s not to like?
Our first tapas stop was at La Bodeguita del Chato. It appeared at exactly the right time… right before HANGRINESS was due to set in. We were clearly the first customers of the day and had the entire restaurant to ourselves. The best way to go is to try a little of everything WITH the mandatory glass of sangria!
Once our bellies were content (temporarily) we continued on wandering the streets.
These men are clearly living the good life!
We found THE Burger King on the beach. 🙂
We spent the afternoon lounging under straw huts on the beach with a pitcher of (you’ll never guess!)… more sangria!
I would highly recommend visiting Estepona, Spain! It was the perfect place to shop, eat & relax.
