What exciting new adventures will the new season bring? Here are some ideas for the perfect autumnal family getaway.
Many of us were sunbathing by the beach just a few days ago, but now the golden season has begun. Time really does fly!
However, we could do with a break from the heat. The cooler temperatures of autumn will allow you to enjoy a whole new selection of exciting plans near our hotels.
What to do in autumn
A wine tasting is always a good idea. The Canary Islands are famous for having over 80 grape types, and this time of the year is perfect for a wine route. La Geria is a spectacular volcanic sand vineyard in Lanzarote, where piles of rocks protect the grapes from the aggressive winds.
Andalusia has some of the best hiking routes in the country, such as El Caminito del Rey. The view from the steep pass El Desfiladero de los Gaitanes will leave you breathless.
Fun activities for children
The beaches in Salobreña are some of the most famous in the Costa Tropical. Keep on reading if you would you like to find out how to enjoy a privileged aerial view.
The town of Salobreña, in the province of Granada, sits on a rocky hill.

Any moment is perfect to visit the jewel of the Costa Tropical, whether you are on holiday or on a short getaway.

Now you can fall in love with them too in a whole new way: at Elba Motril, we can arrange a helicopter ride over the castle of Salobreña and its beautiful surroundings for you. What a privilege, to feel like a bird for a day!
