Summer is here and the mercury is climbing. The beach is only a stone’s throw away, but if you fancy something different, why not take a drive out to one of Malaga’s beautiful lakes for a freshwater dip?
The three lakes at El Chorro, in the Ardales National Park, are stunning: shimmering turquoise waters are surrounded by pine-clad hillsides and dotted with bars and restaurants where you can enjoy a refreshing drink.
Rent a kayak or pedalo to explore the small coves, or swim straight out from shore. The water is warm, clear and clean!
In the cooler months, there are plenty of great walks around the area too.
A little over an hour’s drive from The Urban Villa, it’s another world completely.
