Playa del Cristo is a small, tear drop shaped cove just west of Estepona Marina. The sheltered sandy beach and shallow bay make it ideal for families and it tends to get crowded at weekends and during the summer. There are two beach bars, complete with live entertainment at weekends, toilets, showers and changing rooms. There is ample car parking behind the beach. The views are stunning, west to Gibraltar and east to the harbour mouth.
