Crystal Shore Properties' office is based right next to where the municipality of Estepona starts. We have many beachside properties for sale here, as well as some stunning mountainside properties. Most of this area was built in more recent years to take full advantage of the coastline after the property explosion of Marbella.
The properties here were built with care though – almost no high rise buildings and nothing built right on top of the beach, thus making it likened to the Golden Mile in its quality and style. The beachside areas include Costalita and Cabo Bermejo– both are highly sought after areas to buy property.
On the opposite side of the coast road, bars, restaurants, supermarkets and shops sprang up in order to cater for the increase in visitors and residents. These areas are known as Atalaya, Diana Park, Benavista, Bel-Air and a little old village called Cancelada.
Golf courses arrived as well – one of the most long-standing being the beautiful members-owned club of El Paraiso.
In addition, the very recently famous Los Flamingos golf course was built, with a 5* luxury hotel called Villa Padierna. President of the United States, Barack Obama's wife stayed in the hotel on holiday in 2010, which has proved to be a real boost for the popularity of the area.
Estepona East is a great place to buy a property if you are looking for somewhere a bit more peaceful and more family orientated, but still walking distance to both the beach and a full range of restaurants and small local shops.
