Salobrena (Spanish: Salobreña) is known as “the jewel of the Costa Tropical“ – its long dark sound beaches and pleasant temperatures make the town an ideal all-year-round destination in southern Spain. The picture-postcard town is located on the Costa Tropical, the southern Mediterranean coast of Spain, in Andalusia. It is just 20 min east of Almunecar and 50 min south of Granada city by car.
The history of Salobrena dates back over 6000 years. The higher part of its Old Town is dominated by a 10th-century Moorish castle erected on an impressive over 100 m (328 ft) high rocky hill. The town is surrounding by lush sugar cane plantations. Azucar Guadalfeo, built in the neighboring village of La Caleta in 1860–1861, was the last working cane sugar factory in Europe; it closed in 2006, now housed a little museum with exhibits.
