Destination guide

Axarquia: a rarely explored stretch of Andalusia

Axarquia is a comarca of southern Spain's Andalusia and stretches from the golden coastline up to the soaring mountains. Unlike many parts of Spain, it hasn't suffered from rampant overdevelopment and all you'll find here is sleepy white-washed villages and swathes of olive groves, vineyards and the odd herd of sheep. It's as scenic as it sounds and if you're into rambling or cycling along country roads, there are few places which measure up to this rugged landscape. Alternatively, score an Axarquia vacation rental along the coast and be a beach bum for the week. The choice is yours.

Things to do

Sleepy hilltop villages in Axarquia

To explore Axarquia thoroughly, you'll likely need a car. As you drive up through the snaking mountain roads that lead off the coast you can stop en route in sleepy hilltop villages. It's worth dropping by the town of Velez Malaga to see the Muslim castle towering above it. The typically white-washed Andalusian town of Competa is home to the Museo de Vino, where you can sample some fine Spanish wines and bag yourself some locally-made ceramics while you're there. In a valley a couple of miles south of town you can admire an ornate minaret.


Could hiking get any better than Axarquia

The mountains are criss-crossed with a network of spectacular footpaths that meander through deep valleys and olive groves, some of which date back to the Moorish times. Remember to pack your walking boots because you won't want to miss stomping along these trails. If that all sounds a little too much effort, you could always visit one of the local stables to experience the stark landscapes from horseback instead. Down along the coast you'll find some gorgeous stretches of beach, where you can spend sunny days splashing around in the sea or getting stuck into some serious water sports action.


Sizzling summers and mild winters in Axarquia

Axarquia and its southern spot along the Andasulian coastlines enjoy a Mediterranean climate. The summers are sizzling but cooled somewhat by the breeze coming off the sea. It's the busiest time for Axarquia, with families from nearby Malaga and the capital Madrid escaping to the countryside and beaches. Don't discount spring and fall, both of which are usually blessed with bright skies and a warm enough temperature to still hit the sand in the middle of the day, though the evenings can be get little chilly. If you visit in winter, you can score Axarquia vacation rentals at seriously knocked-down rates.

Natural features

Towering peaks and birds of prey in Axarquia

You'll find starkly beautiful landscapes near any Axarquia vacation rental, but for some of the most spectacular, visit the 40,000-hectare natural park. It's mostly made up from the Alhama, Almijara and Tejeda mountain ranges, the highlight peak towering over 2,000 meters high. The rugged Andalusia landscape is dotted with olive groves, steep ravines and pretty villages which date back all the way to the Moors. Much of the flora here is endemic and though the mountains provide a habitat for much wildlife, the highlights are the birds of prey, which fly above it all. It's as dramatic as it sounds.
