Salobreña is at the heart of the Costa Tropical de Granada in Southern Spain. Steeped in history and with a rich legacy - the Moorish castle sits proudly above the whitewashed village standing guard as it has done for hundreds of years.
Contrasting old and new the village is becoming a cosmopolitan small town. The new fountain which greets visitors standing in Plaza Goya at the entrance bears testimony.
Opened in September 2003 the fountain performs to the sound of music and has a computer controlled light display.
Motril yacht harbour welcomes visiting yachtsmen from around the world - it has a good quality restaurant and swimming pool for the use of members and guests.

Salobreña is divided into two main areas, the old village and the beach area.
The beach is long and generally uncrowded except for the month of August when there is a mini invasion of Spanish holidaymakers from the inland cities of Granada, Jaen, Madrid and beyond.
For most of the year it is possible to claim a good 100 metre stretch of beach for yourself.
Monté De Los Almendros (mount of almonds) is an elite residential area which sits just behind and overlooks Salobreña.
"The Monté" has it's own sports area for the use of residents and this includes a swimming pool, children's pool, tennis courts, five a side football field and a pool side cafe in the summer months.
There are lots of beaches both large and small within easy striking distance of Salobreña.
Calahonda and Torré Nueva are but two of these - the beaches have long promenades and a good selection of restaurants and bars. Mainly simple and inexpensive but all serving good quality meals at keen prices.
Just 10 minutes inland is the area known as the Alpujarra. The Alpujarra is really the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains and fascinating to visit. The area has been made famous over the years by those who have lived and written about the many attributes.
Two well known books are "South from Granada" and "Driving over Lemons"
At the Western end of Salobreña beach is Peñon Rock a favourite swimming and sunbathing area. The rock provides shelter from the prevailing winds thus flat calm seas and safe bathing. There are a number of very nice restaurants and chirringuitos in this area - an ideal spot for families.
