Salobreña, on the Costa Tropical, is a great destination to enjoy a vacation in one of the places with a climate where the sun shines longer than anywhere else in Europe.
Travelling to the prehistory of Lobres
New historic trail that shows the natural and cultural legacy of Salobreña; the path known as 'Journey to Prehistoric Lobres' lasts for five hours over 20 kilometres and is for all ages.
The start of this tour begins in the House of Culture of Lobres from where we follow the river Guadalfeo. The tour has a guide and the registration fee includes lunch.
Our visit to the town cannot end without a visit of Salobreña Castle; a Moorish castle which has undergone many transformations throughout its history.
If you would like to visit it, visiting hours are as follows:
Mornings from 9:30 am to 2 pm and afternoons from 4 pm to 6:30 pm.
The Vega of Salobreña
A walking trail that runs along the coast of the town, from the river mouth Guadalfeo to Motril and where we will enjoy a typical Mediterranean landscape.
The route starts at the public park of La Fuente from where we head to Playa de la Charca. After crossing the river mouth will continue in that direction until we pass the Golf Los Moriscos and the neighbourhood Santa Adela, recommended place to taste the typical fried fish.
After having rested, we follow the path until we reach the Camino del Rio Seco which we follow to Camino del Molino that we follow back to Salobreña.
Other closeby routes
From Salobreña we can follow a route that takes us to Almuñecar, following a path that will take us more than 4 ½ hours after walking approximately 16 kilometres.
From Almuñecar have access to other routes where we can enjoy a beautiful landscape:
Route from Almuñecar to La Herradura
This route follows the old path of fishermen and is only 3.2 kilometres long. Depending on the time of year we find even snow in addition to the spectacular views of the sea bottom.
Route of the subtropical valleys
Walking path of little difficulty with precious landscapes where to take photos.
Old route Camino de Guerra
Nice route from La Herradura and from where you can see the African coast during clear days.
These routes are ideal throughout the year.
