Located between two of the most popular and lovely spanish coastlines the Costa del Sol and the Costa de Almeria, the Costa Tropical is a real insider-tipp with beautiful, idyllic little villages and charming sandy beaches. For those who prefer to spend their holidays in regions, which also aren't overcrowded, should look for the alternatives below, too:
It's easy to imagine why the Mediterranean coast in Granada is known as the Costa Tropical more commonly than the Costa de Granada. The shelter of the nearby Sierra Nevada mountain range provides not only a spectacular backdrop but also a pleasant microclimate, with summers milder than in other regions of Spain and winters far warmer. This makes the Costa Tropical an idea year-round holiday destination. Its beaches draw visitors from all over the world. The beach in Almuñécar is especially popular with holiday visitors, as it is a great place for water sports. Besides swimming, waterskiing, and surfing, visitors can also enjoy some the most interesting diving sites along this stretch of the Mediterranean. Holiday accommodation is available in all different types, from Costa Tropical villas and Costa Tropical apartments to waterfront Costa Tropical villas. The hills around Almuñécar have kept development close to the beach, which means easy beach access from your holiday rental and an undeveloped countryside just a short drive away.
Take a day or two off from swimming and sunbathing to explore the foothills – you'll find great hiking and cycling opportunities with stunning vistas of mountains and sea. But don't miss a chance to explore the town of Almuñécar itself – the current city was built on the ruins of an old Roman town. Recent excavation projects have uncovered more of this past fortification, now visible to the public - along with the Roman aqueduct and St Miquel Castle, there's plenty to see in Almuñécar on the Costa Tropical. Take the time to explore this fascinating region, and to relax on the beach, by booking a Costa Tropical holiday rental. Costa Tropical villas, Costa Tropical apartments, and Costa Tropical rentals can be found listed here – you're sure to find the perfect accommodation for your Costa Tropical holidays among this wide selection!
