The Village of La Caleta

La Caleta is situated on a fertile coastal plain bordering the Mediterranean Sea used primarily for growing sugar cane. La Caleta has one of the region's last remaining commercial sugar mills. The views of the snowcapped Sierra Nevada mountains to the north and the dramatic Salobreña seaside cliff capped by the ancient Moorish castle are stunning. La Caleta also has a charming, traditional fishing port at the foot of the village.
