Welcome to the Costa Tropical!

The Costal Tropical is located on the Mediterranean coast of southern Spain, also commonly referred to as the Costa Granada, and is mostly associated with the town that sits at its center, Almuñécar.

The beauty of the mountains meeting the coast, the deep blue waters, the sunshine and a rewarding climate that never gets too hot nor too cold, the relatively limited development and proximity to raw nature, the abundant year-round outdoor sporting activities, the low cost of living, the proximity to the large, culturally rich cities of Granada and Malaga and their convenient airports, the friendliness and relaxed pace of life, and the art and architecture. More about the Costa Tropical...

The other important cities and towns that make up the Costa Tropical are Motril, Salobrena and Almunecar's more picturesque appendage, La Herradura. Nerja, also covered by this website, is not "technically" part of the Costa Tropical, but it should be. Only about a 5 minute drive from La Herradura, Nerja is more like the Costa Tropical in its geography and beauty than its actual parent costa, the Costa del Sol.
