Ronda is an unmissable destination in the province of Malaga. The city of Ronda enchants everyone who visits it because of its location, as it offers spectacular and panoramic views of the surrounding mountains. As well as being one of the best-known places in Spain, it is one of the most sought-after destinations in Europe. It is a recommended place to spend a weekend with the family as it offers a variety of outdoor activities. It is also a romantic destination. Enjoying a sunset from one of its viewpoints is a great plan to do as a couple.
If you want to experience something to remember, let us show you the strategic places to contemplate the best sunsets that Ronda has to offer.
This viewpoint is considered the best in the whole municipality. With views of the Puente Nuevo (New Bridge), it offers us an extensive perspective of Ronda as well as a close-up view of the colossal bridge. It allows us to observe the contrast between the new city and the Roman construction of the bridge. Sunset is the best time to visit it. As the viewpoint is located on a ledge, i.e., a platform a few metres above the mountain floor, it gives the sensation that you are floating.
The sunset is a spectacle here. The rays of sunlight colouring the white walls typical of Andalusian houses is an effect not to be missed. It is a clear example of peace and tranquillity being connected with the nature of the river and the mountains and the warm atmosphere of the Andalusian city.
For the more adventurous, going down to the Tajo is the best option if you want to see a different kind of sunset. Normally we look for the heights to contemplate as much landscape as possible, but what about going down to the deepest part of the Tajo and contemplate the imposing bridge over our heads? Ronda, as well as having incredible buildings, has a natural side worth seeing. If we walk along the banks of the river Guadalevín, we will have on both sides the extraordinarily steep walls of the Tajo and the beautiful waterfalls caused by the unevenness of the water.
Watching the sunset in this area is a double experience. On the one hand, we will have walked through the gorges, down the slopes, abseiling and hiking along the rocks. The route offers everything an athlete could ask for. In addition, the second experience is the breathtaking sunset: under the 98 metres New Bridge. The sun crossing the arches of the bridge is an unforgettable image.
The gastronomic culture of Ronda is very rich. Ronda has numerous taverns, bars, restaurants of all kinds: for the most traditional and the most avant-garde, the most economic and the most luxurious, etc. El Morabito is a restaurant that stands out not only for its food, but also for its incredible views. It is located in 4 Plaza María Auxiliadora (29400 Ronda), right next to the Tajo de Ronda.
From there we can have a delicious coffee while watching one of the best sunsets that Ronda has to offer. It is a place where the whole family can go. It has a cosy atmosphere and a large terrace. Moreover, no matter if it is a splendid sunny day or a cloudy or rainy day, it is prepared to enjoy the views either way.
It is a recommended place for lovers of Andalusian food and, why not, photography. Who wouldn’t like to have a souvenir photo of a nice meal with a beautiful sunset in the background.
