There are multiple places where you can swim in the area. You can swim in a pool or in the Mediterranean Sea. Of course you can enjoy the water of the private swimming pool of La Estrella de Cómpeta. Or just read a book and relax next to pool, but there are more pools in the neighborhood.
Hotel Balcon de Cómpeta in Cómpeta has a beautiful pool and bar combination. A day-ticket costs 5 euro’s and includes a towel and chair. Less busy and a bit cheaper is the pool in Canaillas de Albaida (7 minutes by car).
The nearest beach is Torrox Costa. A bit more attractive beaches can be found at Nerja: Burriana Beach and at Balcon de Europa and a little further Almería and Herradura. Our favorite is Burriana Beach. The beach is great. They have great sun beds and there are lovely beach restaurants and cafes. Herradura is great is you like a bit more rest. There are les people in Herradura cause there are also a lot less restaurants at the beach.
