Potato stews with dogfish, salted fish, monkfish salads and salamadroña soup, based on sardines, pumpkin and spices, all belong to the region’s rich culture and long history.

Rices, gazpachos and salads are all washed down with local Costa wine, made in the towns of the adjoining sierras. A tasting that should not be missed: cane rum from Motril, the only rum made in Europe.

Don’t leave without first trying the famous leche rizada (meringued milk) which has been made by the Pelarrés Heladería since 1900. It has ice cream parlours in Motril, Torrenueva and Salobreña.
