Between the orchard and the beach
The beach is beautifully located in the Vega de la Guardia, an area where tropical fruits and vegetables are grown. Right below the Salobreña Castle, and next to the sea, they can be found right next to the soon-to-open Sugar Cane Museum. With the lovely background and views of the Sierra Nevada, this area offers a quiet and delightful location for anyone interested in an active holiday or retirement, with plenty of nature and sea related activities available nearby.
Swimmers will enjoy the sea at La Guardia Beach, La Charca in Salomar and El Cambrón, where also fishing, diving and rowing can be practiced. A delicious walk may take us to the rocks at La Caleta, along the Beach to boulder of El Peñón, or up the hill to the old Castle. Salobreña and La Guardia have many things to offer to those who enjoy a quiet environment with a long history and plenty of natural sites.
Far from the crowds, one of everyone’s favourite moments is the drink and fried fish at La Guardia beach bar.
Salobreña is a beautiful historical village of 12,000 at the mouth of the Guadalfeo river, which runs down the villages in the Alpujarra to a rich area where tropical fruits are grown, such as avocados, custard apples, mangoes, guavas and flowers. It is located at just a 30 minute drive to the city of Granada, and only 10 km of the Motril Yacht Club, 10 minutes away from Los Moriscos Golf Course and only 40 minutes away from the ski resort in Sierra Nevada.
