Castell de Ferro

The charming Mediterranean fishing town of Castell de Ferro is situated in the coastal region known as the Costa Tropical, in the province of Granada.

The scenery in this area is stunning, with steep cliffs and a dramatic coastline. The area of Castell de Ferro is much less busy than some of its counterpart seaside resorts, and suits those looking for a coastal resort with a difference.

The resort can be reached from Almeria, Malaga or Granada airports.

About town
Castell de Ferro is a small fishing village with narrow, winding streets, which all lead to the main plaza (square), which has a few amenities for the holidaymaker: shops, bars and restaurants.

The name of the town derives from the castle, which is the backdrop to the town, which was originally constructed to defend the natural harbour that the village overlooks.

Beaches
The village has a little shingle beach, and the surrounding area has other sandy beaches, which are easily accessible, including the nudist beach La Joya. The beach at Castel de Ferro does have water sport facilities, including sailing and sub-aqua diving.

Places to visit
If you want to get in a round of golf whilst you are on holiday, then the Los Moriscos Golf Course is just 20 kilometres west of the resort.

The pretty seaside resorts of Almuñecar and Salobrena are just 20 minutes drive and the main city of Almeria with its Moorish castle is around an hour’s drive away.

If you enjoy outdoor pursuits, then head inland into the stunning region of Las Alpujarras, where you can trek, ramble, enjoy the beautiful natural surroundings and also travel into the Sierra Nevada mountain range.

Eating out

There are a few bars and restaurants in the town, serving mainly traditional Spanish cuisine. Obviously as Castell de Ferro is a fishing village then we can recommend the local catch of the day. The local waters are especially well known for producing succulent prawns.

A speciality breakfast of the region is Espichás, which are sun-dried anchovies, salted and fried with garlic and eggs.

Climate

The Costa Tropical takes its name from the sub-tropical climate that it enjoys. With warm winters and long hot summers, the average temperature is around 20C.

Castell de Ferro review

It is a small, fishing village. It is not over-run with tourists. The beach is rocks, not sand. There are a few beach bars. One has chairs that you can use if you eat or drink something every so often. The people are very friendly. I spent a good chunk of my time there. If you want rest and relaxation, this is the place for you. There are just enough restaurants to give you a variety of choices. The local bakery is excellent and the markets are well-stocked. The beach never seemed very crowded. The water was nice, snorkeling just off the beach we saw a nice variety of fish and an small octopus. I did get stung by a jelly fish, but otherwise, the water was nice. The first few days there was a good amount of surf and the last few days it was calm as glass.


Costa Tropical reviews

Not as crowded as some areas of Southern Spain. If you want all night parties, go somewhere else. If you want relaxation and the chance to experience actual Spanish culture instead of pure tourist culture, come this way. Also, it was convenient for day trips to Granada and Cordoba.
