Beach destinations. Tropical Coast

The coast of the province of Granada, with destinations such as Almu├▒├ęcar, Salobre├▒a and Motril.

The name tropical comes from its peculiar microclimate, due to the proximity of the Sierra Nevada, which acts as a natural barrier against the wind and manages to maintain a pleasant temperature all year round, practically subtropical, which allows the cultivation of exotic fruits.

Most of the beaches are black sand and we can find both tourist places with all the facilities and services, as well as more hidden coves perfect for getting lost and enjoying the sea in peace and quiet.
