To eat at a chiringuito, reserve a table ahead of time.

If you want to eat at a chiringuito it is advisable to make reservations in advance. In high season they tend to be very crowded and eating without a reservation can be a real chimera. In some chiringuitos they only reserve until 13:30, guiri time, if you want to eat in Spanish time you will have to sign up in a list and wait for your time to come.

We are going to try to describe all the beach bars in Estepona from our experience as anonymous customers of what we have seen when visiting them.

Africa Beach

Varied menu, hammocks and lots of cocktails. It used to be a family-run chiringuito. Now that they are a beach club, it has lost a little of its essence. However, we were pleasantly surprised by their rice. It may seem like it’s only for tourists, but if you’re from around here, try it without fear.

Bookings: (+34) 952 11 32 99

Bookinngs: (+34) 952 11 35 56



Chiringuito Tropical

Its location between the center and the port makes it almost always full, but to tell you the truth, if we compare it, in quality and especially in service with those of its surroundings, perhaps it is not the one that comes out best. That doesn’t mean it’s a bad option, it’s not bad at all, but it’s not our first recommendation. The service is not too fast, but you are always attended with kindness and sympathy.

Location: Playa de la Rada, s/n – Next to Mirador del Carmen

Bookings: (+34) 682 79 72 68



Havana Beach

Music and mojitos in the middle of Cristo beach with acceptable food but not very glamorous for the prices they charge. We only recommend it if you are right next door and do not have the energy to go elsewhere, which would be the most sensible option.

Location: Playa Del Cristo, s/n 29680 Estepona, Málaga.

Bookings: (+34) 952 11 35 68



Chiringuito Lolailo

If it is located in the exclusive Playa del Cristo beach, as it cannot be otherwise, you will be charged as a five star, when in quality it will never reach that level. Its specialty is Italian cuisine, but they also have all kinds of rice dishes, fish, homemade desserts … All this, seasoned with a good atmosphere that invites you to have fun. Live music and the best views to watch the sunset. Sun loungers and Balinese beds. Happy hour from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. 6€ cocktails and drinks. Private parties, weddings. Open every day.

Bookings: (+34) 971 34 99 00



Central Beach

In the very heart of Estepona, right at the traffic circle of the Alborán building, we will find this glassed-in beach bar. The rice is good, the fish and seafood are also recommended, but the best are the espetos, made by an espetero (a man or woman who makes espetos) who does his or her job with love and always with a smile.

It may lack a couple of waiters to provide the best possible service but we still recommend it for a good mojito session.

Location: Glorieta Juan Carlos I, S/N, 29680 Estepona, Málaga, España
