Reservoirs in Andalucia

If you are planning an overlanding trip to Andalucia, southern Spain or are already here there are numerous places to visit and explore. Reservoirs are dotted across the landscape and we’ve found that these bodies of water offer some great scenery and off roading around the outskirts due to their location.

Reservoirs in Andalucia tend be located around mountainous areas making them great places to drive around, you can find tracks all the way around many of them, some of which [but not all] lead to the waters edge where you can park and take a break, cool off in the Spanish sun and escape the Andalucian dusty roads for a while.

Even without access to the water reservoirs are pretty spectacular from a landscape view point with photography opportunities high in the surrounding mountains overlooking the water.
