Lazy Days

If relaxing, and doing-not-very-much-at-all is the key to a good holiday, then there are a few things you might like to know are fairly effort-free – in between all those exhausting hours spent by the pool or spa, of course…

The beaches of the Costa Tropical are less than an hour’s drive from La Alpujarra.
Salobrena and Almunecar are the main resorts, but there are also loads of quiet secluded coves dotted along the coastline.
Park yourself at a bar or cafe in Orgiva or Cadiar, order a cold beer and tapas, and watch the world go by… there’s usually something to catch the eye!
Whether in Canar or Juviles, you don’t usually have to walk far along the GR7 to find an interesting spot to relax.
This 200ft waterfall is an easy 25 minute walk from Canar.
Market days in Orgiva and Cadiar are usually a busy affair.
Great for local crafts, fresh fruit and vegetables, organic produce and spices.
The Alhambra isn’t the only attraction in Granada.
There’s an excellent shopping district, but if things get a bit too hectic, you can always take a break in the city’s vibrant cafe culture…
…or escape the crowds altogether with a visit to city’s Hammam Arab baths.
A unique experience!
Take a gentle stroll through the ancient, narrow streets of any Alpujarran village.
Wonderful displays of colour with invariably spectacular views at every turn…
…followed by an afternoon of pampering at the Balneario in Lanjaron.
