Beach
“This is a lovely clothing-optional beach in a natural park. Swimming here is amazing because there are lots and lots of fish! Great beach restaurant too. Note that in the summer you need to park just off the highway and take a bus down the hill to the beach.”

General Entertainment
“It is one of the last unspoiled sites in Spain. The castle dates back to the Morish time. Salobrena was like Granada one of the last towns reconquered by the Spanish Catholics in the 15th century. ”

Park
“The path that leads down the side of the San Miguel castle and back into town brings you out into the small but lovely Majuelo Botanical Gardens. This shaded, verdant little paradise is home to more than 200 species of sub-tropical plants, trees and flowers from all over the world. Particularly noticeable as you wander around these immaculately-maintained gardens are the Sabal Palm (from Cuba and Florida) and other varieties of the same species from Central America, the Philippines and New Zealand. ”

Amusement Park
“The only salt water aqua park in Spain, Aquatropic’s rides, slides and attractions will entertain adults as well as kids for hours. Water park classics such as the Zig Zag, Kamikaze and Wave Pools are on offer alongside amusements with rather more tantilising names: Black Hole or Whirlwind, anyone? When you need a break from the water-themed larking about, there are plenty of places to head to refreshment, including a self service restaurant and bar and a waffle kiosk. ”
