Costa Tropical

The least well-known of the Costas, probably because the name is a recent creation for the coastline of Granada Province. Nevertheless it should not be overlooked. It is characterised by mountains running down to the coast creating a rocky coastline of isolated sandy coves. Get away from the crowds here, and enjoy some great diving opportunities.

Beaches are listed from West to East.
