Salobreña is my favorite corner of the Costa Tropical, which is quite a feat considering the amount of charming white villages which dot the Andalusian coastline. The most interesting part of Salobreña, however, is not its boardwalk or beach, but it's ancient Albaycin which crawls down along the top of the village's rocky butte from the Moorish castle.
It'd be hard to find a more picturesque place in the entire world (with the exception of it's bigger cousin in Granada). The Moorish architecture and influence are definitely present, but a distinctly Andalusian flavor has crept in as well. White walls hung with colored mosaics, tile work virgins, geraniums....vine-covered arches concealing Moorish patios with their shady, sensual corners and fountains. It's like being transported back in time.
