Known as an antidote to the busier, more populous resorts dotted around the Spanish coast, Costa Tropical is the perfect place to escape the humdrum hustle and bustle of everyday life. Located within the culturally rich region of Andalucía, this small coastal resort has an embarrassment of riches when it comes to beachfronts, calm waters and luxurious accommodation. This spot is one of the best places to find a mixture of tourist treats and Spanish authenticity. Still relatively untouched by the huge business of tourism, Costa Tropical still has a quintessential Spanish feel, which is more than a little difficult to find in 2020.

The climate in Costa Tropical is one almost entirely separate from the rest of the Spanish coast. Sheltered by the Sierra Nevada Mountain range, the region remains warm throughout the year. Venerable forests featuring both palm and pine trees are dotted all over the region and they provide some amazing trails for all holidaymakers to discover. All this talk without even mentioning Costa Tropical's crowning jewel, its magnificent beaches. The coastline, which belongs to the province of Granada, stretches across a number of whitewashed villages and a mess of tropical fruit trees are dotted all around them. In a few words, it’s how most people would imagine paradise.

Top attractions

A huge attraction in the region is of course it's many beautiful beaches, but more on those later. In addition to those sandy treasures, there are a number of worthwhile attractions in the area. Keen photographers and wannabe historians can come together and rejoice at Castillo de San Miguel, or San Miguel Castle, this amazing site found above a beautiful botanical garden providing some amazing views from its lofty vantage point. Despite being a traditional and historic castle, the exhibits within have been spiced up with some modern technology and they remain a good source of fun for all visitors. Families will enjoy a trip to the huge water park of Aqua Tropic, while tourists who enjoy a social aspect with their history lessons will enjoy visits to the old distillery of Ron Montero.

More classical fans of history will find a lot of fascinating lessons to be learnt in the archaeological museum of Cueva de Siete Palacios. Accessible with the same ticket bought for San Miguel Castle, this museum shows off some authentic Roman caves and showcases the unique blend of culture which has been built up over a number of centuries.



Now for the main event, Costa Tropical's beaches. Calahonda is a beach known equally for its amazing sands and reputation for delicious seafood. With a colourful fishing fleet bobbing in the horizon, this beach still has a traditional vibe for you to soak in. When you're done with sunbathing, be sure to try the culinary delights at El Ancla Restaurant. For an alternative beach choice, try La Rijana. Accessible from a small car park a few minutes way, this cove is a hidden gem in the area. The snorkelling here is fantastic, but perhaps remember to pack some snacks as the refreshments on offer aren't as plentiful as on other beaches. If those two don't quite take your fancy, there are plenty more options with Castell de Ferro and La Mamola being two more favourites.
