Costa Tropical

Costa Tropical holidays

Trailing down part of southern Spain, you’ll find a mountainous coastline carved out along the Costa Tropical. If you’re looking to enjoy a relaxed pace of life, you’ll find it here. It’s a haven for history buffs, and it’s even known for growing juicy fruit with its gloriously warm microclimate.

Costa Tropical resorts

Almunecar

Nestled between Nerja and Motril, Almuñécar is a curving stretch of aquamarine waves tumbling into the rich navy ocean. The old town is rich with historic churches, fountains and much more when you scratch beneath the surface.

Motril

This super-sunny spot doubles as an important fishing town in the foothills of the Sierra de Lújar mountain range.

La Herradura

Originally famed for giving the Spanish Armada refuge from a storm, the pretty harbour and curving horseshoe bay of La Herradura is better known these days as a hotspot for sporty types and sun seekers.

All to play for

Here along the Costa Tropical, you’re promised hidden-away beaches and pebbly patches. Each vibrant little resort has a diverse coastline, with sailing and diving top afternoon activities. If culture’s your thing, prehistoric cave paintings decorate parts of Nerja, alongside plenty of Roman remnants.

Keep it cool

Immerse yourself in the easygoing local vibe. In the town centre, colourful outdoor markets scatter the streets, showing off bright pops of veg, cheese and meat stalls, along with all sorts of flowers and spices. It’s a feast for the senses, but save room for gazpacho, cured ham, and sumptuous seafood dishes.
