Where today's Estepona to Algatocin road (MA-536) crosses the Genal River by the Puente de San Juan, you can find a popular roadside restaurant called Venta de San Juan and two campsites (one of which is called Camping Genal).
Camping Genal is located in deep in the Genal river valley between Jubrique and Algatocin on the MA-8305 road. A secluded area very quiet and great for kids to play safely outside. It is a superb location right beside the Genal river in a woodland location. Swimming is popular in the river in the summer months.
The Sierra Bermeja mountain (1.449m) dominates the landscape behind Estepona. There are few places in the world where a mountain reaches this height so close to the sea (10km) You can drive to near the top in under an hour. Take the road (Carretera Genalguacil) (MA-8301)
The village is easily approached by road, which skirts lower part of the village. Whenr approaching from Estepona park up by the Morisco looking monument of the Hermitage of the Castanuelo, just above the town. Looking down the immediate valley, the old Lavardero can be seen, which until the coming of electricity, was the main washing area. A pleasant short track leads down to this.
