Costa Tropical

Although not nearly so well known as the neighbouring Costa del Sol to the west. The Costa tropical of Granada province is particularly picturesque beachside, more relaxed, with a perfect sub-tropical climate.

Many tourists are starting to head east towards Costa Tropical, where they can enjoy a taste of traditional Spain with it small charming fishing villages and white mountain villages.

The mountains run right down to the sea and the coastline is typically a series of coves and promontories.  Inland from the Costa Tropical you find yourself in Las Alpujarras, one of the most
naturally striking and beautiful regions in Spain, and the Sierra Nevada mountain range. Enjoy sun and ski on the Costa Tropical.

History
The region dates back to Phoenician settlers, and there is a strong heritage in the resort of Almuñecar, of both Phoenician and Roman
occupation.

However, the whole area boasts a wealth of interesting cultural attractions, including Moorish castle, Roman Aqueducts, Phoenician
Necropolises, and much more.

Towns and Villages of the Costa Tropical
Almuñecar, together with its neighbour La Herradura form the tourist capital of the Costa Tropical. The town sits upon a hill at the mouth of two rivers, meandering down to the coast, in
the province of Granada in Andalusia. From here you can almost reach out and touch Africa and its special climate. The town is backed by rugged hills, valleys and agricultural land of olive groves, almond and carob trees.

The charming Mediterranean fishing town of Castell de Ferro is situated in the coastal region known as the Costa Tropical, in the province of Granada.The scenery in this area is stunning, with steep cliffs and a dramatic coastline. The area of Castell de Ferro is much less busy than some of its counterpart seaside resorts, and suits those looking for a coastal resort with a difference.

The picture postcard village of Salobrena is situated on the Costa Tropical in the province of Granada; it’s known as the ‘jewel of the Costa Tropical’, the village is ideally located, on the beach, in a wonderful sunny climate, yet just 45 minutes from the historical city of Granada, and the skiing resort of the Sierra Nevada. You can
literally mix a ski and beach holiday.

The busy seaside town of Motril is located on the Costa Tropical, in the province of Granada, in Andalusia. It’s the largest town on the Costa Tropical with a thriving economy, based on
agriculture, fishing and its leisure port.

The stunning bay of La Herradura, together with its neighbouring town of Almuñcar, forms the tourist capital of Costa Tropical.

Climate
The Costa Tropical takes its name from the sub-tropical climate that it enjoys. With warm winters and long hot summers, the average temperature is around 20C.

Costa Tropical reviews

It was a very natural part of the coast with the mountains providing a stunning back drop. We felt very safe and secure in a very clean environment. Cheaper to go out than the Costa Del Sol especially if you follow Nicks tapas rules.

Salobreña review

Very nice off season. Old town is very characterful. Use Mercadona for a well stocked and clean supermarket.


Costa Tropical reviews

Beaches are gritty sand but some very nice spots. The new motorway is an engineering marvel and makes the coast road and towns much more pleasant.
