El Cristo beach lies to the west of the town of Estepona, next to the marina, and is a popular destination with all tourists to the area.

El Cristo beach is a small cove, almost 700 metres long, which has been awarded the Blue Flag 2016, one of the most important awards a beach can receive. The beach is perfect for children with an area with trees, crystal clear water and mild temperatures as it is sheltered from the wind.

A choice of food is available on the beach at the chiringuito Lolailo, which offers fresh fish while you enjoy the views across the Mediterranean. The beach bar also has toilets, and offers a DJ and live music at the weekends.
