Find your perfect apartment, cottage or villa rental in the low-key Costa Tropical

Holiday among the locals in the authentically Spanish and serene resorts of southern Iberia

Holiday apartments, houses, cottages and villas in the Costa Tropical

Located in Granada Province, the picturesque Andalucian coast of the Costa Tropical is comprised of agricultural areas, small resort towns and authentic fishing villages. The N-340 motorway stretches along the entire region, to the southern coast of continental Spain, connecting all the coastal resorts along the way and making them easily accessible by road. The two closest airports are Malaga, which is Andalucia’s main airport, and Granada. 

Unlike the landlocked provinces of Seville, Cordoba and Jaen, Granada's sea access is the sunny Costa Tropical, also known as the Costa de Granada or Costa Granadina. Boasting over 70km of coastline it is one of the quieter costas of Spain, known for its charming and idyllic way of life where you can experience untouched Andalucia. The family-friendly beach resorts are bathed by the warm brassy rays of the sun, one of which is charming Motril nestled in the heart of the comarca. The cobbled streets wind between the fishermen's cottages and whitewashed houses, where you'll find a scattering of bodegas, restaurants and tapas bars met by the sparkling coast and the warm Alboran Sea.

The Costa Tropical is very much a blend of two cultures, where Moorish architecture meets colourful Spanish customs. Some historic remnants go even further back in history with many ancient architectural sites still standing and open to the public, such as the Roman Aqueduct in Almunecar. Take a long scenic walk along the ancient structures of the Rio Verde valley, or a relaxing stroll down the winding paths of the fishing villages like Sitio de Calahonda and La Herradura before hitting the beach. If you fancy a change of scenery, the Costa Tropical is also the perfect base to explore neighbouring Costa del Sol and Costa de Almeria, putting you within easy reach of the national parks of the region, and opening the door to a world of outdoor activities and colourful fiestas.

Discover our wide range of holiday rentals in the Costa Tropical, with properties near the golden beaches, historic sites and national parks. There are several excellent golf courses nearby, as well as water parks like Aqua Trópic guaranteed a fun day out for the kids. For even more options, Almeria and Malaga are just around the corner.
