Explore the Iberian landscape and ancient architecture of Granada Province
Granada Province lies east of Malaga Province in the region of Andalusia, stretching from the Sierra Nevada mountain range and its beautiful white peaks to the north, all the way to the varied coastline and unspoiled natural beauty of the south. Granada also borders the province and regions of Murcia, Cordoba and Almeria.
Those looking for nothing more than sun, sea and sand will want to head to the Costa Tropical with its Blue Flag beaches and water parks. Family-friendly favourites include Calahonda with its lifeguards, showers and chiringuitos, and the dark sand beach of La Herradura, with special child-friendly areas and water sports. Outdoor adventurers will enjoy exploring the diverse landscape of the Sierra Nevada foothills, with many scenic hiking, cycling and climbing routes. Soak up the local culture with historical remnants, medieval castles and UNESCO World Heritage sites such as Alhambra that tell fascinating stories of the Moors, Phoenicians and Arabs who settled here in ancient times. Some may even say that Alhambra Palace is one of the 10 wonders of the world!
Inland, the metropolitan regions such as Granada city offer both upscale shopping and colourful local markets, while the architecture is a mix of old and new. Take a day out to explore the historic buildings, churches, mosques and museums dotted around the main tourist districts. After sundown mingle with the crowds at the lively nightlife spots, restaurants, bars and music venues, with traditional flamenco dancing and seafood in abundance. Festivals take place throughout the year here, with colourful siestas celebrating religious occasions.

To the east of Malaga Province, Granada Province boasts a 70km stretch of beautiful coastline adorned by glorious Blue Flag and family-friendly beaches. Most of the province, however, lies over the countryside to the north, providing the perfect base to explore the Andalusian foothills. Visit the south for its varied coastline, while the north is where you’ll find Granada’s unspoiled hinterland, mountain ranges and valleys.
The Costa Tropical attracts millions of sun-worshippers every year who flock to this beach-fringed region to experience its laid-back Andalusian way of life. The mountain ranges and close proximity to Africa means year-round glorious sunshine and shelter from the winds. As you travel more westwards, the prettier the beaches get. Visit La Herradura and discover the underwater wonders of the Alboran Sea. The aqua park in Almunecar with its many slides is a must-see for families with little ones. Likewise, the Aquarium here is a must-see for its shark enclosure.
Loja, Granada, Motril and Guadix all make ideal destinations for sun-drenched holidays with some culture thrown in. Stroll along the museums, art galleries and castles left behind by the Moors and Phoenicians. Visit the World Heritage and archaeological sites in Almunecar and Alhambra. When you’ve had your fill of cultural spots, enjoy an afternoon of shopping in the larger towns with a wide choice of shopping centres and traditional Spanish markets.
Sierra Nevada is the perfect destination for year-round sunshine, boasting an array of water sports from parasailing to rafting and kayaking. With the Sierra Nevada mountains being the second highest in Europe, Pico del Veleta is the perfect spot for outdoor adventures with plenty of mountain hiking, mountain biking and cycling routes.
