Seaside Salobreña: sun, water sports, scuba diving and walks along the beach
320 days of sunlight a year and the tranquillity of enjoying the sun in the sand, almost alone, is often a luxury in visitor´s hands. 6 Kilometres of beaches, and numerous coves, show delighted the travellers who appreciate the calmness and silent break by the sea waves. Sunbathing and reading will be the best reasons to have a great day, and eating well-fried fishes and a delicious salad of avocado and mango in a town bar, is possible anytime of the year, in this journey of sun and lecture.
You cannot visit Salobreña and not discover its beaches. Walking along these beaches you can get your fill of sea air and discover the small buzzing world that surrounds it. People angling, seaside cafés preparing roast fish skewers, boats fishing in the bay, people out walking, sailing enthusiasts sharing stories at the Punta del Río sailing club. Once you cross the bridge you can follow a 1km long unspoilt beach leading to the golf course. You can walk along the Caleta cliffs following a route that leads to smaller coves. Sport, relax. It’s a joy all year round.
If you like action, you will find a range of companies in Salobreña offering kayak rental, sailing courses, paddle surf, scuba diving or angling services. It is always possible to rest, read and enjoy the sunshine at any time of the year, savouring the tapas and seafood which you will find in over 40 cafés, bars, restaurants and hotels in Salobreña.
The recovery of the ‘Salobreña Reefs’ submarine ecosystem, facing the Beach of La Guardia and the Seafront Promenade of Salobreña has managed to renew the seabed and enabled traditional marine species such as snapper, cuttlefish, octopus, sea bass, sea bream, and gilthead sea bream to return to this coastal area, which is also protected from the effects of boats without selective fishing gear. Ideal area for scuba diving and kayak fishing.
