Playa en Granada, Calahonda

H1: The Costa Tropical, a tour of paradisiacal beaches in Granada

A destination chosen by many, mainly because of its wonderful sunny climate all year round and its mild temperatures. Crystal clear waters, long beaches and a dreamlike natural landscape give shape to the coast of Granada.

The beach of Calahonda, in Motril

Only 14 kilometres from Motril we find the beach of Calahonda. A beach whose crystalline waters make it one of the favourite attributes for visitors. Its waters are perfect for exploring the marine fauna, doing some scuba diving or snorkelling. 

It is undoubtedly one of the favourite beaches for tourists, as it is located in an enclave of summer urbanisations that make Calahonda beach one of the favourite social activities. You can see this beach at the top of the post. Source:

La Joya beach, also in Motril

This “jewel” is located at the foot of a cliff, creating an atmosphere of peace and disconnection perfect for holidays.

It is a difficult beach to access, but well worth it as it is one of the most unexplored and quietest beaches in the area. Perfect to enjoy and connect with nature.

La Herradura beach, in Almuñecar

This beach is not just any beach, but this entire coastal area was declared a Natural Park in 1989.
