Playa Granada
18600 Motril GR

This is a nice beach with a peaceful atmosphere and surrounded by a special light thanks to the intense green of the golf course.  It is the beach that best represents the perfect balance between tourism and protection of the environment. There is no other beach that can combine such a number of different leisure services with two prestigious tourist quality awards under a rather exacting standard based on sustainable environmental management.  It was chosen by the Monarchs of Belgium as a holiday destination in their property named “Villa Astrida”. Nowadays, it is an important residential area in expansion and the ideal scenario for golfers and water sport enthusiasts. The strong Easterly and Westerly winds that often blow across the headland near “Villa Astrida” also make Granada Beach a top spot for practising paddle board sports, windsurfing and kite surfing.  At some points, you can see the Sierra Nevada mountain range from the very beach. During periods of snow cover, you can see how the sea and the mountains blend together to form a unique combination of rare beauty and magic.
