One of the lesser known beaches in the area is Playa Calabajio. It runs about 200 meters in length, one of the smallest in Almunecar, and is located between Playa Pozuelo and Playa Cabria. Access to this beach is off the main 340 Highway going towards Motril but right before the bigger than life Hotel Calida.
In the last ten years an amazing tropical Mediterranean oasis has been planted which runs from the top of the hill, where you can find a small look-out, down the hillside to the sea and back up the other side. The beach is literally surrounded by hundereds of Cypress trees, palm trees, Oleander and other tropical plants. This creates a very special atmosphere that is hard to find anywhere else.
The park is also full of nice walking paths that will take you to the top of both surrounding points so that you can enjoy the amazing views down the coast.
Just a quick walk down the hill from Hotel Calida and also equipped with a full service higher end Bar / Restaurant "Chill Out", this beach is perfect for families with children or for a romatic getaway.
For Fun: Explore the new gardens, climb the hill running behind the beach to the lookout above for beautiful vistas of Almunecar to the west and the cliffs and watch tower to the east.
