El Gastor

It may be located in the same province as the bustling resorts of the Costa del Sol, but the picturesque mountain village of El Gastor present a more sedate slice of life in Andalusia. With picture postcard whitewashed houses and narrow cobbled streets, visitors to El Gastor can enjoy a glimpse of traditional Spanish life over freshly prepared tapas and local wines. Whilst it’s located away from the coast, El Gastor can boast a number of swimming options to allow visitors to cool off from the Spanish sun. Lake Zahara is the perfect place to either enjoy a dip or go paddleboarding, canoeing or kayaking in gorgeous surrounds. The verdant Grazalema National Park also houses La Playita, a small lake which attracts swimmers from the region. Furthermore, the town houses a popular swimming pool complete with full amenities, whilst those who a desperate to get to the beach are close enough to visit the Costa del Sol with a hire car.
