Selwo, an Estepona adventure
The Selwo area is without doubt most famous for its Safari Park, which has provided endless amounts of excitement for families over the years. The opportunity to see elephants, lions and tigers, giraffes and fantastic bird species that fly through the trees as you walk through the park is a highlight for children and adults alike.
But that is not all there is to Selwo, as it is also a residential area within the Estepona municipality and one that is increasingly popular with people who enjoy the tranquility of its rolling hills. Additionally, the gentle elevation means properties here enjoy exceptional sea and mountain views.
Selwo is also home to the La Resina golf course and clubhouse, which is a gathering spot even for non-golfers. In addition, local residents live just a few minutes’ drive from the Los Flamingos course and the prestigious Villa Padierna hotel. The Kempinski Bahía hotel, which has a luxury spa, bars and restaurants open to non-residents, is also on Selwo’s doorstep, as is Laguna Village with its Puro beach club and beachside restaurants, including Camuri, Gaucho and Top Thai, as well as several elegant boutiques.
The beaches on this stretch of the coast are sandy and include some wonderful chiringuitos, Crusoe’s being one that is particularly well known. The coastline here is traced by a scenic beachside paseo that invites diners at Laguna Village or the Kempinski to take a stroll and admire the rather spectacular views across to Gibraltar and Morocco.
Selwo residents are also only minutes away from Hospiten, one of the best private hospitals on the coast, and in terms of food shopping there is an Aldi and a Carrefour supermarket nearby.
Estepona town, which boasts Blue Flag beaches, a diverse array of restaurants, as well as a lively atmosphere and flower-filled streets, is just a few minutes removed from the Selwo Hills area, with San Pedro Alcántara, Puerto Banús and Marbella also just a short drive away.
