There have been settlements in Estepona since the stone age, later occupied by the Romans. This all came to an end in the 4th century when the area was destroyed by a large earthquake. Later the Arab Moor's settled in the area until 1457 when Henry IV of Castile captured the town from the Moor's. Now Estepona is a popular holiday resort with twenty one kilometres of sandy beaches which includes two blue flag beaches at La Rada and El Padron.
