Standing on the coast, the town is dominated by a breathtaking Alcazaba castle, a honey-stoned Moorish fortress ripe for exploring and commanding scintillating views.

At night, head for the La Chanca area, where animated bars and nightclubs light up the dark and during the day, there's much to tempt you out and about, from wonderful local beaches to the stunning desert-like countryside, home to a spaghetti-western theme park, hilltop hamlets and salt flats crowded with pink flamingos.
