Rainy Days in Estepona

Our guide to things to do on a rainy day in Estepona. It’s usually gloriously sunny in Estepona, making it possible to visit the beach, go for walks, play sports and catch the sun’s rays on a terrace or pool deck, but on those rare occasions that it is rainy there is still lots to explore and discover without leaving the municipal boundaries.

Estepona Flamenco shows

It doesn’t get more Andalusian than flamenco, and Estepona is a great setting to watch a spirited live performance or participate in a workshop for children and adults. You can choose from dance, singing and guitar lessons or simply watch the professionals at work. Search online for the Peña Flamenca de Estepona.

 

Totem Ceramics, Estepona

Spa relaxation in Estepona 

A rainy day on the Costa del Sol is perhaps the ideal moment to indulge in some pampering health and beauty treatment at the luxurious spas of the The Marriot Estepona Spa or that of the Kempinski. The Occidentaloffers an adults-only option free of kids for true unwinding.

 

Estepona Plaza de Toros Museum

The charming little bullring in Estepona is bigger than it looks – it houses three museums, including a bullfighting museum, the local museum focusing on the town’s agricultural past, and a fossil museum built around four-million year old dinosaur bones found in the region. There is also a collection of memorabilia commemorating the concerts held at the bullring over the years.

Estepona Marina

The picturesque marina offers a variety of restaurants, bars and cafés where you can shelter from the rain. Once the weather clears, this is a scenic spot to go for a walk along the berths and neighbouring beaches.

Petting zoo, Castellar

Ok, the petting zoo in Castellar is a half-hour drive westwards of Estepona, but it is well worth visiting. The animals are largely rescued from illegal smugglers or are recovering from injury or abuse. Perhaps more suited to cloudy rather than rainy days, the petting zoo allows you to meet and touch the smaller animals.
