Shopping in Estepona
In recent years the Costa del Sol has become one of the most cosmopolitan and commercialised places in Europe, with continual tourist growth. Besides the Spanish cultural aspect, much larger and international brand names have been established here.
Estepona offers a large amount of locally produced Spanish goods. Consisting of a large Marina it also has a wide range of nautical shops for boats as well as other accessories related to the sea. Every Sunday, in the port there is a market where you can find many bargains and curious items which will make excellent gifts for friends and family. There is also a commercial centre on the Marbella side of the town which supports a large Carrefour supermarket as well as some interesting satellite shops. Parking in the town centre can be difficult, although the commercial centre has plenty of free space.
