Accommodations in Costa Tropical- Granada

Although not as well known as its neighbour Costa del Sol in the west, the Costa Tropical of Granada is similarly picturesque with beachside holiday rentals but without the crowds. Costa Tropical villas and apartments lie in the heart of old Spain where holiday homes are scattered along small traditional fishing villages with the mountains and seas as its backdrop.

Places to holiday in Costa Tropical- Granada

Málaga- The city is a popular tourist destination and quintessentially more Spanish than any other city on the Costa del Sol. A popular walk in the Paseo del Parque leads up the hill to the Gibralfaro castle offering panoramic views of the city. Also as the site of Pablo Picasso’s birth, art lovers will be delighted by the opening of the new Centre of Contemporary Art and the Málaga Picasso Museum, where visitors can visit the house Picasso grew up in. Also worth seeing is the Moorish Alcazaba, a fortified palace started in the eleventh century and Málaga’s cathedral, which is Renaissance outside, baroque inside. Life in Malaga centres around the Plaza de la Constitucion and the main shopping parade, Marqués de Larios, which leads down towards the port.

La Herradura and Almuñécar- Forming the tourist capital of the Costa Tropical, La Herradura and Almuñécar is a relatively unknown stretch of Spain's southern coastline that belongs to Granada province in Andalucia. It lies between the more populous. Because of its proximity to Africa, La Herradura and Almuñécar have a geography and climate that is unique to any other coastline in southern Spain. Granada holiday homes are located along rugged hills or in steep valleys along the sea. Along the coastline, visitors staying in holiday homes can choose from a large variety of beaches and small coves, including Cabria, El Pozuelo, El Toserillo, Velilla, Puerta del Mar, San Cristobal, de Cotobro, del Muerto, and de la Herradura. Water sports are also popular and offer various courses and equipment hire.

Punta de la Mona- A rocky urbanized area, Punta de la Mona is home to some of Costa Tropical’s most luxurious holiday rentals. The area is home to several small beaches and the Marina del Este, which is centre of nautical life for the area. The port is a popular venue, sprinkled with several restaurants, bars and boutiques. Nearby is the Playa de los Berengueles, the Punta's only beach. Holiday homes in Punta de la Mona vary from large and discrete with private gardens to new apartments or pueblo-style holiday homes. But no matter what, visitors are guaranteed to have breathtaking panoramic views.

Salobreña- The jewel of the Costa Tropical is a white city township clinging with gorgeous beaches, a Moorish castle and surrounded by sugar cane plantations. Only 45 minutes from Granada, Salobrena has an ideal location for holiday home renters hoping to see the entire region.The Moorish castle was built in the 10th century. The Mudejar 16th century church, Iglesia de Nuestra Senora del Rosario is built on top of the old mosque. The town is crowded with bars and restaurants offering anything from seafood to fresh fruits. Salobrena enjoys a colourful cultural scene, with concerts, plays and films all year-round. In the summer, outdoor shows are held in the Arab Castle, the Old Town, and Parque de la Fuente. It also has colourful annual fiestas.

We arrived Friday evening and the owner miguel showed us around and explained how everything worked. There was a very welcome supply of basic food. The house contained everything we needed, was clean and we settled in very quickly What we loved about it was the roof terrace with wonderful views over the Alhambra and the garden which provided us with a lovely area to sit in when the sun came out. The house isn't easy to find, our taxi driver struggled. But the area, the Albaycin is a lovely one to stay in full of history and handy shops and bars. We loved it and the town. We did the Alhambra trip which was fantastic and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Lovely house, area and city, made for a great break
