Salobrena is a picture book town on the Costa Tropical, Spain. The white washed town clings gamely to a rock outcrop set slightly back from the coast, under the watchful eye of a magnificent Moorish castle, and surrounded by beaches and sugar plantations. A villa here is a great sporting destination in both winter and summer, but renting a property in Salobrena can be a purely cultural or beach orientated break too.
A holiday villa in Salobrena gives you the enviable opportunity from October until May to ski during the day in the Sierra Nevada, an hour away, and relax on the long sandy beach in the evening. The ski resort is well equipped with snow cannons, so in the event of light snow, the ski season will still last. There are also a good range of nursery slopes and tuition for beginners if you have a mixed ability party staying in a Salobrena villa.
When you first arrive in a Salobrena property, a great option is to take a walk to the top of the hill and visit the Moorish Castle, not only to explore the magnificent building, but to get the best views of the whole area, from rugged mountains to the lush plains and sublime Mediterranean coastline. There are multilingual walking tours along the coast and inland, which provides first class information on the area as well as spectacular views.
Salobrena is a very cultural town, with not only fine restaurants serving tapas, seafood and local meats, but a year round concerts, theatre and film festivals.
Taking a holiday apartment in Salobrena means you can either relax on the beaches, taking in the culture, cuisine and climate or enjoy the sporting facilities on offer, including hiking, tennis, golf, mountain biking, a huge range of water sports, especially wind surfing, kite boarding, diving and snorkelling (the best dive centres are in La Herradura and Marina del Este) or deep sea fishing. The artificial reef build in 2004 has shown remarkable results, making a villa in Salobrena an ideal place for a diving or snorkelling holiday. Motril Beach Golf Club offers stunning views and a testing course, and Salobrena, Santa Clara and Baviera Golf Courses are all open to the public too.
La Herradura is a quiet, natural beach on the Costa Tropical, with a timeless atmosphere and one of the best diving centres available from a holiday rental in Salobrena.
