Not far from the sea front of Estepona you will find orchid house (orquidario) Estepona & botanical gardens – It is certainly worth a visit and is a fabulous way to spend an hour or so whist vising Estepona.

With 5000 plants and 1300 species, the collection of orchids is said to be Europe’s largest. All of these magnificent plants have been carefully chosen to ensure that visitors experience spectacular flowering displays regardless of the season.

It won’t take long to see everything, and the admission cost of €3 per adult won’t break the bank.
From the 30m high central glass dome to the spectacular display of flora, there is much to attract your attention from the moment you enter.

We enjoyed meandering along the curving path that leads from the entrance to behind the waterfalls and then alongside the falls again and across a little bridge that crosses the pools of water.

However, one of the most impressive features is the spectacular 17-meter-high continuous waterfall, alongside the larger 30-meter-high intermittent waterfall

Despite the fact that we came in January, there were still orchids in bloom to admire. We were informed that it’s even better in the summer since there are so many different colours to view.

A truly magical place! A wonderful ecosystem built within a bubble, a must see for lovers of flora and just on our doorstep in Estepona!
