Sometimes you just want to go to the beach, but staying near Ronda means a one and a half hour drive to the coast for the closest beach, however, not too far away at Zahara de la Sierra is La Playita at Arroymolinos, a fresh water pool made into a man-made beach.
From June until mid September the little beach is open, and is only a 25 minute drive from Ronda, or 10 minutes from Zahara de la Sierra or Montecorto. Located under Monte Prieto, the views of surrounding mountains make La Playita a truly isolated place, yet just a few minutes from civilization.
Why not reserve a night or two in Beautiful Zahara de la Sierra?

So you are in Ronda for a few days (or just passing through) and want to get away to the mountains for a while? Just 40 minutes away by car is the stunning Sierra de Grazalema. Why not take a drive, enjoy the scenery and a wonderful afternoon or evening meal.
The Simancon restaurant is easy to find though in a somewhat unlikely location, on the edge of the main Grazalema car park and dining outside in summer is a very pleasant experience and an ideal place to sit, relax and watch the world go by.
The menu of salads & other starters, including several soups, offers more than adequate choice, ranging far beyond the normal fast food fare of chips and fried pork and includes superb venison steaks, wild rabbit and roasted lamb.
The waiting staff (Jesus, Patro and Cati) are friendly, helpful & attentive to everyone including vegetarian or other dietary needs so one is ever disappointed! First class wholesome food & good all round value.
If you need help to reserve a table because you can’t speak Spanish call me (Clive) on (0034) 681 14 70 24 or send me an email at email@example.com and I will be very happy to make your reservation. RESERVATIONS ARE A MUST AS THIS PLACE FILLS UP FAST!
