Jill

I've been visiting Competa since 2000 & I'm pleased to say that it has always maintained its friendly Spanish charm without the commercialism which has crept in elsewhere in Spain. We all agreed the best restaurants in Competa are still El Pilon & El Cortijo and we also like visiting Gustavo's restaurant in the square in Canillas de Albaida. The ideal place to go for total relaxation.

Competa

Competa is situated in the Axarquia region, a beautiful whitewashed Andalusian village amidst the majestic mountainscape of the Sierra Almijara.

The village has Moorish roots, evident in the style of the village, with its winding, narrow streets and peaceful squares.

Competa is located 20 kilometres north of the coastline of Algarrobo Costa, a car journey of half an hour and 53 kilometres form the centre of Malaga, about an hour’s drive away. With the coast close by, there is plenty of opportunity to experience the more contemporary side of Andalusia.

Natural surroundings
If you are looking for natural beauty then Competa and the Axarquia region are perfect for you.

The village is surrounded by olive groves and almond trees, which blossom in the spring. Competa is situated beside a 4,000 hectare wildlife reserve, which incorporates the Sierra Almijara, rising majestically to 2,000 metres above sea level.

The landscape leading down to the coast is filled with vineyards, olive and lemon groves, tropical fruits such as kiwi and mango, and views so sublime you will never want to leave. The area is particularly popular with wildlife enthusiasts and bird watchers, who come to marvel at the eagles that roam the skies.

Beaches
The beaches along the coastline 20 kilometres to the south are some of the most beautiful that the province of Malaga has to offer.

Cuisine & Dining
Typical cuisine of the area consists of rice, seafood and meats, combined with delicious fresh, local vegetables. Competa has a number of cafés, restaurants and tapas bars to choose from, whether you fancy a formal or informal meal. In some of the more traditional taps bars you can order a caña (small beer) or glass of Rioja and enjoy a free tapas.

Climate
Competa enjoys a sub-tropical Mediterranean climate of hot summers and warm winters with an average of 300 days of sun a year. The proximity to the sea affords cooling breezes in the summertime; the height of the mountains in the region are often snow-topped in the winter, a beautiful sight to behold in the far south of Europe.

Nerja is a nice place to visit and the promenade in Torre Del Mar is also a good place to walk.

Een van de " witte dorpjes" op e flanken van de Sierra Nevada. Gezellige kleine steegjes met een paar prima restaurantjes en winkeltjes.

I like Competa because it is not spoiled by tourism. It is a town where people live - not only in the tourist season

Cómpeta review

all shops and restaurants within walking distance. Very cozy, artists' village and always something going on. We also did not have to take the car out for the walks in the nature reserve.


Costa del Sol reviews

The coast of Torre Del Mar is again well cared for with long paved walking paths on the beach or on the promenade. Many cozy Chirinquitos (restaurants) on the beach and a casual family atmosphere.

Cómpeta review

The first month was perfect however the main street & some side streets were dug up and unusable from the beginning of January. WE expect the work will be completed in 2 or 3 weeks

Great beaches at the popular locations with plenty of facilities for children plus hidden away coves
