The location: Estepona

Kempinski Hotel Bahia is located in the very heart of Andalucia on the Costa del Sol, close to the city of Estepona and Marbella.


Due to its position, it’s also possible to visit cities such as Seville, Cordoba, Granada and Gibraltar.

The nearest Airport is in Malaga and from there you can take a bus or a taxy to reach other zone.

Estepona has one of the most beautiful Old Towns in Andalucia with white streets lined with colorful plants, pretty squares and parks.


We reached this city by bike from our hotel and it was nice because the road is along the beach so you can enjoy the panorama while cycling.


Estepona offers very good climate, traditions but also a modern side and infrastructure and thanks to this it’s a great place to visit, even if it’s not a known spots on the Costa del Sol.
