Salobrena is a small, bustling little town on the Costa Tropical on Spain's Mediterranean Coast in Andalucia. Locals refer to Salobreña as
"The Village" because until about 2001 it was exactly that.
The Village has however, now come of age and in recent years expanded into the most charming little town on the Costa Tropical. Although growth has been rapid - it has been carefully controlled by a youthful planning team at the town hall.
The end result is a friendly well preserved and welcoming place. Salobreña is populated almost entirely by families that have lived here for generations. The community swells considerably in the summer months with an influx of visitors from inland Spain, Madrid, Jaen, Granada and farther afield.

Salobreña is in the Province of Granada, 70km east of Malaga and 50km south of Granada City, lying between warm sea and mountains that progressively increase in height to peak at about 3km near to Granada.

Salobrena therefore enjoys an interesting micro-climate with weather conditions that tend to be sunnier and more temperate than that which is typical of the region. Until now there has been little weather documentation available. is specifically concerned with Salobrena's excellent climate and interesting local weather patterns, local sea state, temperature, rainfall, sunshine, sea breezes ( al brisas ) and weather extremes.

On average, Salobrena can expect up to 320 sunny days per year.

Since 2001 and the BBC programme "Home in the Sun" visited the area we have seen a marked increase in foreign investment which until that time was negligible. Primarily British nationals and other North Europeans are finding Salobrena a desirable place to live and work as well as for retirement.
"Salobreña Village" remains a place with a real soul. To enjoy the area a visitor should try to learn a little Spanish as not much English is spoken here.

Our interest is in the Costa Tropical, it's weather conditions and how they affect life in the area which includes Motril, Carchuna, Almunecar & La Herradura. Other websites offer good general information to visitors and residents.
