Twenty minutes west of Marbella, on the coast, lies the trendy town of Estepona, whose lovely, historic town center, big promenade and beach, and lively marina area pull in troves of tourists yearly. The natural beauty, traditional Andalusia culture, life history, and rural charm all add to the allure of Estepona.
When residents buy villas for sale in Estepona, they give themselves an ample opportunity to hike around the charming town. Continue reading as we highlight why you should experience this town on foot.
Suppose you head north from Estepona in the direction of the massive reddish-brown cliff known as Los Reales. In that case, you’ll soon reach the steep slopes of the Sierra Bermeja, one of the massive mountain ranges that separate the Costa del Sol from the Andalusian interior and stand at over 1,300 meters in elevation, making it higher than Marbella’s La Concha Mountain.
The wooded hills climb sharply, providing breathtaking views of the coast and sea as you take in the natural riches of Paraje Natural Los Reales de Sierra Bermeja.
The north side of the ridge is characterized by a network of winding rural roads that descend into verdant valleys filled with picturesque whitewashed mountain towns. In the hills between Estepona and Sabinillas, along another rural road, you’ll first skirt magnificent green valleys populated with farms and country cottages before arriving at Casares’s stunningly beautiful white village.
Another beautiful hamlet worth seeing is Gaucin, located a short distance inland, from whose mountaintop castle, hikers may take in breathtaking vistas of the surrounding countryside, the coast, and the Mediterranean.
Small restaurants along the hiking trail are hotspots for hikers since it provides welcome shade from the summer sun and a stunning view of the Andalusian countryside beyond the mountains.
