Playa del Angel and resaurants

.

The Playa del Angel apartment complex is just outside the town, on the Marbella side. Its advantages for those coming without a car is that it is opposite the bus station, where there is also a taxi rank.

People ask about getting to bars and restaurants from there, so today I timed the walk.

You can walk into town along the tree-lined pavement by the side the road; that is, in fact, the best way to walk to the Carrefour hypermarket. But otherwise, you should walk along the Senda Litoral - the Coastal path - and the Paseo Maritimo - the seafront promenade.

Here are the timings.

From the Playa del Angel greensward to the beginning of the boardwalk of the Senda Litoral - 3 min

From the beginning of the boardwalk to the beginning of the Paseo Maritimo - 4 minutes

From the beginning of the Paseo Maritimo to the Plaza Ortiz - 7 minutes

From the Plaza Ortiz to the El Pescador Restaurant - 4 minutes

From the El Pescador Restaurant to the La Escollera restaurant - 17 minutes

From the La Escollera restaurant to the centre of the Marina - 4 minutes.

Add it all up to get the total to where you want to go.

This was timed by a fairly fit woman in her mid-seventies this morning. Timings done on the way back, not when I was starting out fresh at the beginning of my walk.

At the beginning of the Paseo Maritimo there are 4 or 5 bar/restaurants. All with great seaviews of course, and totally traffic free.

The Plaza Ortiz is where the Centro Historico begins. There are loads of restaurants there and in the adjoining streets - Calle Real and Calle Malaga and Calle Caridad, with a variety of prices. Two of the best restaurants in Estepona are there too - Las Brasas de Alberto (meat - gorgeous meat! Fabulous) and La Taberna de Miguel (meat, fish, rice - wide choice and a lovely outdoor patio area).

El Pescador restaurant is right on the promenade, so wonderful views. Like the other 2 I just mentioned, upmarket and excellent. Fish.

La Escollera looks modest from outside, it's where the locals go, right next to the wholesale fish market and the fishermen's cabins. Fresh fish. Great.

The marina is chock full of bars and restaurants, mainly catering to the international tourists. Italian, Chinese, Indian, Thai, Belgian - a very wide choice of cuisines and prices. It is also where the Sunday market is held, 10-2.

Hope this helps!

Best wishes
