Costa Tropical Spain - A General Overview
The Costa Tropical is on the southern coast of Spain, at the eastern end of the better-known Costa del Sol. This stretch of coastline takes its name from the sub-tropical climate which allows the cultivation of exotic fruits and crops such as avocadoes, mangoes, bananas and sugar cane. The area doesn't have the frantic activity of Torremolinos to the west, or the glamour of Marbella. But if you're after a holiday with plenty of activities and a taste of traditional Andalucian life, you've come to the right place.
Instead of bland beaches and mass tourism, the Costa Tropical coastline is full of cliffs and coves, Moorish watchtowers and fortresses, as well as dense orchards of custard apples, avocados and kiwi fruit. The coast is shielded by the Lújar and Chaparral mountains near the coast, backed up by the mighty Sierra Nevada. With the gentle warm winds blowing across from North Africa, plus the warmth of the Mediterranean`s waters and the protection afforded by the mighty peaks of Sierra Nevada, a very particular microclimate is created that produces mild temperatures all year round. More than 320 days of sunshine per year and 20ºC. average annual temperature. This diversity means that you can ski in the sierra Nevada and sunbathe on the Mediterranean beach all in the same day!
Malaga Airport is approximately 1¾ hours drive time from Lújar and there are the three main resort towns of the on the Costa Tropical within easy driving distance from your accommodation: Motril, Almuñecar and Salobreña.
Granada Airport is approximately 1hr 15mins drive and is a easy drive from the airport to the villa.
Almeria Airport is approximately 1hr 15mins drive and is also an easy drive.
You have the choice of three airports all within easy reach so you can pick your departure points to suit yourself and your pocket.
Castell De Ferro is our nearest small town for shopping and is 15 minutes drive away. However we have bread vans who deliver daily to the door and also fish, fruit, veg, wine, can be bought in the village from visiting vans who have a thriving trade.
Motril City of the Costa tropical here you will find many sofisticated shops selling all manner of things and has a great hipermarket selling just about
everything you need. There is also a thriving port here as well as a beach offering watersports in the summer. Motril is where you'll also find a great Golf course for the enthusiast with a good 19th too.
Almuñecar is the tourist capital of the Costa Tropical and is one of the most Spanish resorts along the entire south coast. It's a favoured holiday haunt of the Spanish from Granada as it provides excellent leisure facilities but has not been tainted by the trappings of mass tourism.
Salobreña is a whitewashed township clinging to huge lump of rock just back from the shoreline and surrounded by lush sugar cane plantations. Salobreña has witnessed 6000 years of human history, thanks to its privileged position and benign climate. It is topped by a Moorish castle built in the 10th century. The 16th century Mudejar church; Iglesia de Nuestra Senora del Rosario, is built on top of the old mosque. Roman remains turn up everywhere.
