Costa Tropical East
The Eastern Costa Tropical is largely undeveloped. The beaches are long and generally unpopulated except during July and August when they see an influx of Spanish visitors from the inland areas of Granada, Jaen and Madrid. Even then you will have no trouble finding your own quiet space.
Steeped in tradition the villagers are always well prepared to fiesta.
Above, the festival of "Romero" when the locals turn out in caravans and on horse back to trip through the village streets to the sound of local brass bands. The day ends in a big firework display.
The villages of the area are typical Andalucian white pueblos just oozing with charm. The village folk are very proud of their heritage hence the streets are clean and often filled with Geraniums and other colourful plants.
Motril is an important sea port and has a delightful yacht club which welcomes visiting overseas yachtsmen.
The coast line of the Costa Tropical is varied, often rugged cliffs with little coves and fishing villages. In other areas wide open expanses of beach.

Left; Salobreña main beach during the peak holiday season of August. Never over crowded the beaches offer safe bathing and all the water sports you can imagine.
Motril (Moriscos) Golf is mid way between the port and beaches of Motril and the Beach area of Salobreña. About 3 minutes from each.
Situated in the flat Guadalfeo Delta, a wild life sanctuary, the first tee is right on the edge of the beach by the club house. You drive down the fairway often against a back drop of the "snow covered" Sierra Nevada Mountains.
The club is open to all, equipment can be hired.
