Self-contained Storage Companies in Estepona

If you are looking for storage in Estepona, why not use a reputable local company with self-contained storage units in Manilva and Duquesa Port, just 15km down the road?

Estepona has many attractions which make it a popular holiday destination. It has two EC Blue Flag beaches, a marina area with many tapas bars and restaurants and a white-walled town offering shopping and picturesque squares.

With a population of 60,000 people, Estepona is one of the Costa del Sol´s smaller resorts, yet still offers holiday makers some of the best amenities on the coast.

Particularly popular with Spanish tourists, this bustling town offers accommodation to suit all budgets and requirements, and boasts some of the best beaches in southern Spain.

There is nothing pretentious about Estepona, and numerous street cafes and tapas bars still serve traditional Spanish delicacies at amazingly low prices. The steep, cobbled, narrow streets are home to a host of unusual shops, bars and restaurants, and a weekly market also takes place in the port.

Close to the most southern point of Spain, Estepona is just 35km from Gibraltar, and day trips to this historical rock can be easily arranged from most hotels and tourist offices in the town.

Many hotels have kids clubs and activity centres for younger members of the family, and there are plenty of activities available close to the town. One of the best family days out has to be a trip to Selwo Wildlife Park, just 3km from Estepona centre.

Boasting over 2,000 semi-free animals, and 200 species, this is a wonderland for children and adults alike. The animals are well cared for and roam around in over 100 hectares of semi-natural environment.

On entering the park, the first section houses the parrots, and an incredible aviary, which is home to 1,000 birds. This vast netted area, the largest of its type in Europe, allows the birds to spread their wings, and gives visitors the chance to see them close up.

The rhino enclosure is situated just past the aviary, and visitors can watch the animals being fed and cared for by the keepers at the park.

Just over the ravine, where zebras and camels roam, open safari trucks operate in two directions around the park, and most of the larger animals can be seen from here. Brown bears, tigers, lions, elephants and giraffes can all be viewed at a comfortable distance, and there are also plenty of smaller species to see – the meerkats being a particular favourite!

Boasting 21km of coastline, Estepona prides itself on its clean, white, sandy beaches, and a marble seafront promenade stretches from the east end of town up to the marina.

Playa del Cristo, or Cristo Beach, is five minutes west of Estepona Port. It is a small cove with lifeguards on station and also two chiringuitos, beach front bar/restaurants. La Rada Beach is 2 minutes east of Estepona Marina and, at over 1.5km in length, runs from the Marina past Estepona old town.
