Located in the Spanish province of Granada is the town of Motril which is the second largest town located on the Mediterranean Sea coast.. The town is around 70 km from the city of Granada, close to the Guadalfeo River and nestling in the foothills of the Sierra Lujar mountains, midway between Malaga and Almeria. For any visitor choosing to explore the delights of the coastal and inland region of Andalusia, Motril is the perfect town in which to be based. The many tourists who visit the town enjoy its beaches and sunny weather, the lovely local produce and the town and surrounding region's cultural heritage. The town is also the main shopping hub for the Costa Tropical and therefore has excellent shops, a hypermarket, bars, restaurants and nightclubs.
Granada's coast enjoys a subtropical climate, and its clear, warm, waters of the Mediterranean Sea make it the perfect location for water sports. Scuba divers also head to the area to experience one of the most beautiful sea floors on the Andalusian coastline.
