The beachside section, south of the A-7 road, is characterised by several low-density holiday complexes originally built in the 70s and 80s, such as Bahia Dorada, Arena Beach and Bahia Azul. Many properties therein have been refurbished to create attractive holiday homes, which combine a traditional Spanish style with modern interiors. In addition, there are several new luxury beachfront developments, such as The Island, The Edge, The Sapphire and Horizon Beach; with some units costing several million euros. The new pedestrian pathway that forms part of the “senda litoral” project allows residents to walk along a scenic route all the way to Casares Costa, Estepona town and beyond.

The upper zone, north of the A-7 road, is idyllic for golfers. Here we find three major golf courses: The new Azata Golf, Valle Romano and Estepona Golf; in addition to being right next to renown Finca Cortesin (one of the top-5 golf resorts worldwide). This area is now undergoing a major transformation. In recent years the Estepona town hall built a new hospital, a multilingual school and a commercial plaza, in parallel with key infrastructure projects (new roads, bridges, and water and electricity connections). This was followed by investment from the private sector, much of which is still ongoing, such as the new Azata Golf (launched by Spain’s largest landowner), Alcazaba Lagoon (Europe’s largest crystal lagoon) and several high-end residential developments in the areas of Estepona Golf, Arroyo Enmedio and Valle Romano.

Estepona West has massive potential. It is one of a handful of regions along the coast that still have large urban plots for residential developments. Most of all, unlike other areas, it already has the necessary infrastructure and urban licences in place, in addition to being strategically situated between central Estepona and Sotogrande.
