Ardales Lakes - Andalucia

These stunning views of the Ardales Lakes are less than an hours drive from the beaches of the Costa del Sol. This area provides much of the water for the Malaga region and just now the lakes (of which there are 3) are almost fully stocked after the recent heavy downpours over the Christmas period. If you ever visit the Costa del Sol then a trip to this area is a must as you have such a vast contrast of scenery from the coastal resorts. You are very likely to see birds of prey such as eagles or vultures flying overhead....a very impressive sight with their 3 metre plus wingspan!
