    You can easily take a bus that takes around one hour to the coast of the state of Granada. We went to Salobrena (on top the "n" there's that sign...but I can't do it on this keyboard:-)).

    well, wen u get out of the bus..u just ask where the beach is, 'cause u have to walk for around 15min. to get there.

    The beach was full of locals but we went up the hill and had picnic there....what a wonderful view!!!

    It is known as TROPICAL COAST because of its climate that allows to cultivate tropical products as: avocado, mango...

    Some interesting cities are:

    SALOBREÑA with a castle on a high rock that seems to be floating on a sea of green plants.

    ALMUÑECAR a romantic village with a Roman aqueduct.

    Salobreña is a small town at Province of Granada, situated on the coast. White houses climb a hill which has an ancient fortress on the top.
    Put your most comfortable shoes on, and begin to walk!

    If you want more information about Salobreña, you can visit my Salobreña Travel Page.

    Salobreña es un pueblito de la Provincia de Granada, situado sobre la costa. Casitas blancas trepan una colina, que tiene una antigua fortaleza en la cima.
    Ponte tus zapatos más cómodos, y comienza a caminar!

    Lots of Room for your Towel

    Did you know Granada has beaches? Yes, it's called the Costa Tropical and there are 28km of beaches. Not many foreign tourists find there way here. This pictures was taken in August when most other beaches are jam packed with people. The water is quite cold here but it's crystal clear and clean. Enjoy the fresh sardines barbequed right on the beach over hot coals. Watch the fishermen come in with their fresh catches. Visit the local castle on top of a hill overlooking the sea and sugar cane fields. Buy fresh mangos grown in the fields nearby. This is for those who want to rest and enjoy the scenery. No noisy discos here.

    Costa Tropical, Salobreña

    Where the province of Granada meets the Meditterannean sea, called the Costa Tropical. Its jewel is the historic town of Salobreña. Good clean beaches stretch along the coast here, and Salobreña town with it's whitewashed houses offers plenty of history for the curious. Only 45 minutes drive from the city of Granada.

  • When driving back to the coast...

    by carolynnoble Written Aug 24, 2002

    When driving back to the coast take the tourist route to Almunecar,(the turning at suspiro del moro)
    The views are amazing.But DO NOT take this route if you are scared of heights, or a nervous driver as it is scary in places.The villages on the way (Otivar,Jete) are still relatively unspoilt and a good place to stop for a drink. You will probably need one after the drive!
