Salobrena on the Costa Tropical has Europe’s best microclimate. The microclimate is due to the fact that the city is located between the Mediterranean Sea and the hinterland’s high mountains, Sierra Nevada.
Salobrena has with its 320 annual sunny day an ideal climate. It is one of the healthiest in Europe. Not too hot in summer, and rarely cold in the winter.
The good weather means that meals usually can be eaten outdoors all year. And you can bath in the pool, also during the winter season.
If you’ve heard that in southern Spain it is possible to swim in the pool in the morning and ski in the afternoon, then it is correct. It is in fact possible in Salobrena, where you in barely one hour can drive to the big ski resort in Sierra Nevada. So remember the warm clothes if you go to the mountain in winter. The temperature in the mountains is quite different than in the area clos to the sea.
If you decide to go for vacation in Salobrena during the winter you’ll find out that the Costa Tropical Winter is bright, sunny and warm.
