Where pomegranates and sugar cane grow, warmed by Saharan winds, you’ll find the Costa Tropical…
A unique microclimate generated by the Sierra Nevada mountains enables southern Spain’s Andalusian Province of Granada, a region of sleepy whitewashed villages, Moorish castles and exotic fruits, to bask in a subtropical landscape.
You'll find the breathtaking Alhambra in the magical city of Granada, or look to the south east and the mountainous countryside of the Alpujarras, where traditional houses perch on hillsides.
The unique blend of Spanish and Islamic architecture is a reminder of the area's fascinating past, and with so much to explore, you'll be glad to relax on the beautiful beaches of the Costa Tropical before planning your next discovery!
