Ojen is situated on the edge of the Sierra de las Nieves, from the hotel there are many different walks to enjoy, including a walk to the little village of Istàn. For the more adventurous it’s even possible to climb the 1215 m to the top of the Concha.

A little further away there are more walking areas. De Sierra de Grazalema, Parque Torcal, El Chorro (walking and swimming) and the Alpujarras, the mountain range that lies on the sea side of the Sierra Nevada.

De Costa de la Luz, on the way to Gibraltar and Tarifa is a beautiful stretch well worth spending a day exploring. We’ve enjoyed many delicious Sunday lunches at Zahara de los Atunas.
