Estepona Beach

PLAYA GALERA

This 2km beach is bounded at the west by the Torre de la Sal headland and runs to the next headland at Bahia Dorada; it is about 40m wide. Not overly busy, this is mainly used by the residents of the urbanizations that straddle of the coast road.  There is a chiringuito at the western end near Torre del Sal.
There is a pedestrian promenade for part of this long beach and little dedicated car access except roads in the urbanizations.
About halfway along is a large rock called Piedra Paloma (Dove's Rock) just out to sea.
This marks Playa Piedra Paloma, which is actually in the municipal district of Casares and in 2016 became an authorised Dog Beach replacing the Playa del Sal dog beach. Access to Playa Piedra Paloma is via the Urbanizacion Casares del Mar.   

PLAYA BAHIA DORADA

This beach is similar to the others in the area. Bounded by the two headlands it is about 700m long and 40m wide.

The established urbanization Bahia Dorada fronts the beach. A seafront promenade was constructed recently, to protect from land erosion in the winter storms.

There is no car access to the beach.

On the Bahia Dorada headland at the east and interestingly within the estate is an old circular watchtower. (Torre Vigía).

PLAYA ARROYO VAQUERO

This beach is to the east of the Bahia Dorada headland, and where the Arroyo Vaquero river reaches the sea.

The car access is a roundabout into the Fuerte Estepona Suites Hotel which fronts this beach Upon entering the turn right and wind your way through the houses near the Arroyo Vaquero river.

The beach is about 1km long and 50m wide and is quiet, with ample parking space and a chiringuito.

Access is also provided on the other or west side of the Fuerte Hotel.
