Of the three provinces of Andalusia that border the Mediterranean Sea, Granada is the smallest. Despite this, its hundred kilometres of coastline, which stretch between Malaga's Costa del Sol and the Costa de Almeria, offer unique features as well as being one of the least spoiled and most beautiful parts of the Mediterranean coast of Andalusia.
The old N-340 road (Cadiz-Spain) runs parallel to the coast, and, further inland, also more or less parallel, lies the route of the future A-7 motorway, which will be completed in the coming years.
Cliffs, viewpoints, small bays - Cantarrijan (Almuñecar) and La Joya (Motril) - wide family beaches such as San Cristobal (Almuñecar), Salobreña and Calahonda (Motril), perfect seas for diving, including La Herradura and Castell de Ferro, and modern facilities for water sports make up the unique landscape of this coast. The area enjoys a subtropical climate, with 320 days of sunshine each year and an average temperature around 20º C.
