Estepona and Cancelada are best examples. Due to the uncertainty and urban planning regulations, both towns are now at heart of new build property development.
Estepona enjoys one of the best (micro) climates of Europe. The traditional Spanish fishing village is located in the south of Spain on the Costa del Sol in the province of Malaga. it is a perfect place to enjoy the Spanish sun, the beautiful beaches and the pleasant sea. Estepona has a Mediterranean climate. The place is sheltered from the hinterland by its location on the northern side of the Sierra Bermeja mountains. As a result, the rainfall in Estepona is very limited and the sun shines 300 days a year. The winters are warmer and softer than elsewhere in Spain, the summers hot and dry. Ideal for the beach less suitable for sightseeing. In the summer there is also long light so that one can enjoy the summer evenings for a long time. The mountain Sierra Bermeja is a beautiful nature reserve. The red mountain spreads a beautiful orange glow when the sun goes down and there are also several wild animals to admire.
The municipality promotes Estepona as the ‘garden of the Costa del Sol.

The municipal budget is therefore not used for the construction of more houses, but mainly investing in the improvement of the enjoyment of life and you notice that. Even if you only visit for the day.
