Driving south along the Mediterranean coast we stopped first at Salobreña.
|way to the castle of Salobreña|
The town of white washed houses lies on a steep hill with a moorish castle from the 10th century on top. While wandering the small streets we often had nice views.
In Solabreña we also used the self service laundry at the gas station. We found that works very well.
use 2 smaller washing machines with 8 kg to wash white and color
seperately. Afterwards I put everything in one big dryer and in 1 hour
everything is washed and dry – perfect!
The evening was warm so we spent it at an open restaurant directly at the beach with views along the coast. Felt like summer!
We passed Almuñecar which has too many apartment buildings for our taste and soon reached Nerja.

This town is also dominated by tourism, but the buildings are not very high, the coastline with rocks and little beaches is beautiful and even in February the tourist area was busy enough. I don’t want to imagine what is going on here in summer.

We walked through the little streets full of shops to the Balcon de Europa, which gives nice views along the coast.
When we reached Burriana beach we looked for the restaurant Ayo with its giant paella. When we found it, the paella was much smaller than I remembered. But of course in winter they wouldn’t be able to sell the portions the giant pan makes.

The paella was good and now we had the strength to walk back to find our caravan again, which we had left in a big parking somewhere in town. (36.750063, -3.878959)

After a short drive up into the mountains we reached Frigiliana, a white village with great views.

In the center we found a parking for heavy vehicles, which we certainly are.
As I still had problems with my ankle, we took the tourist train to cart us through town.
This way we saw part of the village without walking. The driver explained everything also in English, which was nice, we just couldn’t understand his strong Spanish accent 😉
