The blue sea, beaches and coves of Granada’s Costa Tropical make a brilliant contrast against its green valleys. The area is full of towns and villages, and all of them are worth visiting. Some of them are: - Motril, a seaside town with a mix of Muslim and Christian influences. Perfect for relaxing on La Joya beach, and visiting the church of La Encarnación or the shrine of Nuestra Señora de la Cabeza, among other sights. - Almuñecar, for history lovers. It’s always a pleasure to wander its streets and discover all the iconic sights, like the gate of Paseo Blas Infante or the Roman aqueduct of Sexi. It also has several beaches with crystal-clear water, such as Playa de Cantarriján and Playa de la Herradura. Finally, you must try moraga (sardines in tomato), atún encebollado (tuna with onion) and papas con cazón (a fish and potato stew).
