Estepona Bus Station

Estepona's new Bus Station opened in July 2014 and is located next door to the Exhibtion and Congress Centre on Avenida del Litoral just beyond Carrefour hypermarket on the eastern link to the A-7 coast road 1km east of town center. The new building houses the ticket office, toilets and waiting room only. No cafeteria but there are vending machines. The office is open 06.30 to 13.50 hrs and 14.00hrs to 21.45 hrs.  Unless you are staying close by, and especially if you have heavy suitcases, you should catch the local urban L1 or L2 buses from here to the town centre. Unfortunately the bus station sits midway between two stops ( McDonalds & Carrafour) on the Estepona Port to Marbella L79 bus route. There is a taxi rank behind the bus station. See below for local urban bus timetables.
