Estepona is a celebrated tourist destination of approximately 60,000 permanent residents. It is located in the south of Spain, along Andalusia's Costa del Sol. Estepona is completely encompassed by the Sierra Bermeja mountains on one side, and the Mediterranean Sea on the other. The resulting microclimate yields near-constant sunshine for Estepona. Gourmands can feast on fish, shrimp, and mussels prepared in colorful paellas, often while sitting in shady outdoor patios, buffeted by gentle Mediterranean breezes.
Points of interest in Estepona include the Selwo Safari park, which has about 2000 species of roaming animals, as well as the Estepona Golf Course. There's also a lovely old castle in Estepona, named after saintly Louis IX of France.
