Seafront Walks

Hi,

I am due in Estepona around Easter and an bringing my elderly mother who loves to walk especially along sea fronts/beaches, she is very fit for her age. I know there is a long promenade in the town but would perhaps like to take longer walks. Can anyone tell me how far you can walk along the seafront in the Marbella direction and if there would be anywhere to stop off for a refreshing cold drink/rest? Also how far is it possible to walk from El Cristo beach heading west ?

Many thanks

I don't think there is a beach side passeo going west from Crito.

The walk between the port and Carrefor to the east would take about an hour with plenty of places to stop for drinks.

If you have transport you could drive to Sabinillas and walk along their long passeo.

You could drive to Marbells and walk in either direction for miles

There's a decent passeo in San Ped as well

Hullo there, so pleased to hear that you are coming to Estepona for Easter! There is SO much to see and do.

Here are details of Easter:

As for walks . . .

The coastal path does not join up, yet, so there are only small parts. Going west from El Cristo beach you have hardly anything - just a short strip. Don't bother!

Going east from El Cristo you have 3 km of town seafront promenade. Lots of places to stop.

After the big Carrefour hypermarket, you can continue west by walking for 10-15 minutes along the pavement by the main road; it's tree lined so not unpleasant! Then when you come to a petrol station, turn right down towards the sea, walk along through the park there (El Angel it's called), right to end, along an oleander-lined path back to the road, walk along road for another 5 minutes, turn right again and you then have another 2 jm or so along the official coastal path past lush apartment complexes and the Kempinski Hotel (really beautiful stretch) all the way to the Playa del Padron. At that point cross the main road by the tunnel and wait for a bus back to town. That is 5 km in all from carrefour, more if you start in the town centre.

Or you can take the bus to do some walks:

https:/…Excursion.2.Bus.To.Puerto.Banus.html

https:/…Excursion.3.P.Banus.To.Marbella.html

You can also get a bus (enquire at the bus station) to casares Playa, get off there and then walk to Sabinillas, and on and on through Puerto de la Duquesa and on and on . . . That's 7km in all, you can stop at any point of course!

Best wishes

Couple of other suggestions

Get the bus from your accommodation towards Marbella. Get off just after crossing the river just to the east of Puerto Banus, where The Roman Villa is. It's only open one day a week ( Thursday I think). There are impressive mosaics. You can also visit Museio Rali just by there if you like art. Walk down to the sea along the river, cross the wooden suspension bridge and walk into Puerto Banus. Get the bus back. ( you may have to cross the main road via a tunnel... Turista pew I'll know) if you don't want to walk in to PB you can go the othervway towards Marbs.

Get the bus as before, but go a little farther. Get off a Victors beach Bar. Walk down to the sea and then head east to Marbella. Bus back.

Turista you mixed up your east sand wrests when you said about going further from Carrefor, I think.

Yes, thanks Trickster!

As you know, I nearly ALWAYS mix up west and east when writing about the walks!

:-)

Good job you are here and have a sharp eye!
