Salobrena is a unique town in a spectacular location with a rich history and a fantastic beach.
The old town is built around a huge rock formation which slopes down to a long, beautiful unspoilt beach. At the top of the town, overlooking the area below is an incredible Moorish castle built during the 10th century. Salobrena is commonly referred to as the jewel of the Costa Tropical.
This sub tropical paradise lies a mere 35 - 40 minutes south of Granada city and the Sierra Nevada snow resort is just over one hour away. This is the place to come if you want to stay on the beach and snowboard or ski during the day (see our Snowboarding Spain page).
The beaches around the area are fantastic for year round holidays. Salobrena is a lively town with a great selection of bars and restaurants to keep you entertained on a night out.
