The Costa Tropical region
Costa Tropical is the name for the Mediterranean coastline of the province of Granada, Spain, in the heart of historical Andalucia. The Costa Tropical begins soon after passing the last towns in the Málaga province of Nerja and Maro, and begins with the fishing village of La Herradura on the border of the Granada province, and continues until passing the town of Castillo de Baños as you enter the Almería province.
It was, until recently, relatively unpopulated in comparison to the rest of the Spanish coast, mostly because of the ruggedness of the terrain. As one approaches the Costa Tropical from either Almería to the east or Málaga to the west, you will notice that the area looks less dry and more lush that the surrounding areas. This is because the Sierra Nevada mountain range that serves as a backdrop to the Costa Tropical catches more rain and thus supplies the area with abundant irrigation.
This same mountain backdrop provides a good shelter from northerlies and creates a pleasing “micro-climate” of very mild winters and mild summers compared to the interior of Spain, with temperature differences of 10 degrees Celsius relative to the area on the other side of the mountains – so it could be 38 degrees Celsius on a summer day in the city of Granada and only 28 degrees Celsius on the Costa Tropical. In the winter, it can be snowing in Granada and 10 degrees Celsius on the Costa Tropical.
It is a popular destination for Spanish summer holiday makers, and a popular year-round destination for northern European visitors, retirees, and full or part-time residents. In the past decades, smaller towns and less development lead to a frequent characterization of the Costa Tropical as “more Spanish”, more traditional, than its larger and more popular neighbor to the west, the Costa del Sol.
On weekends throughout the year, the Costa Tropical has always been a very popular destination for residents of the city of Granada. In the summer, it is a very popular destination for Spaniards throughout the country.
The Velez de Benaudalla / Las Terrazas del Jardin Nazari area
Velez de Benaudalla is an unspoiled gem the rest of the world is just beginning to discover. The friendly and outgoing people grow almonds, olives and vegetables in a privileged location just fifteen minutes from fantastic beaches in Salobreña, less than forty minutes to the centre of Granada and one hour from world class skiing near Granada.
Among the many things to see in this Costa Tropical town, one of the popular places is the Nazari Garden, which dates back to almost 500 years. It is considered as a poetic reminder that transforms into a beautiful paradise of aromas through the different flowers that blossom in different times of the year. Andalucia is in itself a beautiful garden and Velez de Benaudalla is just a part of it.
Since Velez de Benaudalla is situated right at the foot of the mighty Sierra de Lugar Mountain, it offers plenty of acitivites from walking, hiking, trekking to camping, mountain biking and rock climbing. As a result, it has become a popular destination in the recent years with expatriates. Another extremely popular sight is the 15th Century castle, which was restored in 1992 by the Ayuntamiento or the town hall. This castle is from the Arab period although many changes were made to the walls by subsequent rulers. The church of Velez de Benaudalla also known as La Iglesia del Rosario is one of the modern churches in Costa Tropical as compared to the other historical structures and dates back to the 18th century. It was designed by Ventura Rodríguez.
