Nice anchorage close to beach, fairly busy during the day however everyone left by 19:00 and we had it all to ourselves. Some swell from E. Also easier to land dinghy in front of beach bar around the wave break. Good holding in sand .

Anchored for 3 nights. There can be some swell 90degrees to the wind that cuases some vicious rolling, i put out a stern anchor that kept me head to the swell all night and slept soundly. Easy to get to the Marina on a dinghy snd easy to reach the beach on Paddleboards. 4 meters depth with black sand bottom. Water was murky when wind shifted Easterly and lots of Garbage floateed past. Quiet at night and beach was lit up so it all felt quite safe. Not much traffic but a few small boats anchoring in the daytime. Estepona is a beautiful town, well worth a lokg stroll around the place.
