The lake reportedly provides excellent course fishing.  Many competitions are held along its banks.  It is just over a quarter of a kilometre to walk through the olive groves and on down to the lake or you can take the car down very close to the water.


The world famous golf courses of the Costa del Sol are only an hour away and those of the Costa del Golf, including Valderrama, Sotogrande and San Roque, are about 1 hours away. 

The nearest course to Iznajar is the new course at Antequera which is now fully open. All 18 holes are challenging with plenty of water, narrow fairways, olive trees lining the first cut and subtle borrows on the greens.  There are many interesting holes, a few spectacular ones and the views around the course are wonderful. 

There is also a members club at Granada (bottom left picture above), set under a fabulous backdrop of the snow covered Sierra Nevada, which allows visitors to play during the week.  Both Antequera and Granada green fees are considerably lower than on the coast and the courses are better than most public courses on the Costa.

Water sports

At Valdearenas beach there are facilities for a range of water sports.  Swimming in the lake is wonderful, there is a sailing school right by the beach and you can rent pedalos and canoes.  We have seen a windsurfer on the lake but, to date, have only experienced conditions there suitable for a novice rather than an experienced windsurfer.  Apparently, you can also water-ski.
