Where the Sierra de Almijara plunges into the sea, erosion has created a spectacular coastline of cliffs, coves and small beaches over an area of 1,814 hectares, on the border between Granada and Málaga, at Maro-Cerro Gordo Cliffs Beauty Spot (Paraje Natural Acantilados de Maro-Cerro Gordo).

Mediterranean scrub, featuring juniper, Ephedra vulgaris, holm oak, lentisks, kermes oak, carob, Cneorum triccocum and palmetto. Fields of a submarine plant known as posidonia are also common along the coastal strip.

Members of the seagull family, such as the Lanus ridibundus, Lanus argentatus and Lanus fuscus, as well as roving species of birds of prey, falcons, goshawks and sparrow hawks.
