They do a range of classes and times and you don’t have to become a member to attend, what a great way to work off those few extra calories from the fine food and cocktails the night before.
The commercial zone also has a barber, beautician, hairdresser, supermarket, bars and restaurants which are all situated next to the 18 hole golf course. It is about a 15 minute flat walk from here into the centre of Rojales.
