Natural Feature
“30 minutes’ drive is the stunning lake (Andalucia’s largest reservoir) complete with small sandy beach on its shore, where you can swim, rent sunbeds, pedalos, canoes and dingeys. We love it here for a short day trip with lunch, something a bit different to the coast but with great facilities. The town itself offers great tapas bars, an historic Castle, churches and traditional barrio (neighbourhood).”
