Polopos is reached by leaving the main coast road at Cortija La Guapa, La Mamola and winding the way up a good tarmac road. The journey takes about 25 minutes by car & new vistas are seen at every bend. There is limited traffic on this road and you will find yourself stopping to take in the scenery & innumerable snaps. The village is a friendly place. There are less than 100 or so inhabitants, but they usually smile & say hello. The main occupation is farming; almonds being the chief crop, followed by vines, figs & other fruit & veg. There is also a sizeable flock of goats & sheep & owing to the hilly terrain, the use of mules is still a way of life.
Various visiting mobile vendors serve the basic needs of the community & there are two deliveries per day of fresh bread. There is a local bar & the wine is good. Shopping can be supplemented by visiting Castell de Ferro and La Mamola, two villages on the coast, which boast supermarkets with fresh meat, fish,& veg. & there are several excellent, inexpensive local restaurants. There is a twice weekly market at Motril & various other markets inland. All along the coast there are stretches of beaches, many coves & inlets & the water is usually calm & crystal clear. Apart from the usual seaside sports you can swim, snorkel, fish, walk, ride a horse, paint, sample the local brew or just laze.

Polopos is a mountain village, situated almost directly south of Granada. Five & a half miles to the south is the vast expanse of the Mediterranean, while to the north are the peaks of the Sierra Nevada. This is not a tourist area, and although half a dozen houses are expatriot owned, tourists do not often come to the village.
