Salobrena, dazzling and white, is a whitewashed town clinging to a huge rock, the most spectacular location on the Granada coast. It can be found in the very heart of the Costa Tropical.

It is split into two areas; the old hill township with its steep meandering streets dotted with shops, tapas bars and at the top its 10th Century Moorish castle. To the west lies the small coastal village of La Caleta, which has the last sugar cane factory in Europe.

Beneath the old town of Salobrena lies a modern low level beach resort with plenty of bars and restaurants to quench your first and titillate your taste buds with delicious tapas, which come free with every alcoholic drink.

Salobrena has a lively cultural scene with year round concerts, plays and in the summer months outdoor shows are held in the castle. You can of course take part in a wealth of water sports, golf, mountain biking and a real treat for snorkellers and divers is the artificial reef built 2 years ago off the Penon rock to shelter and encourage sea life.

Almunecar and La Herradura are within easy striking distance and interesting places to visit
