Hi, are there any shops and restaurants within walking distance? what sort of excursions are on offer near by? I’m not one for sitting round the pool everyday so was wondering if there were plenty to do near by?
Hi - well not on foot. Absolutely nothing except two restaurants on the adjacent shore of the lake (it's actually a reservoir) - both extensively reviewed on TA, and the camping restaurant is a good-value bar type. If you have a car then yes. You could get to Velez-Malaga which is close by and overlooked but has some nice monuments and churches. There are several of the typical white-painted villages within 10KM. The coast would be most accessible at Torre-del-Mar near Velez-Malaga.
A bit further afield would be the marvellous Antequera.
