MumAbroad Granada 

 

The city of Granada lies around one hour inland from the Costa de Almería and is located at the base of the Sierra Nevada mountains. The population of the city of Granada is estimated at 236,982 and of these a growing number of expats are adding to the census. Granada sits at the heart of Andalucía and is one of Spain’s most important destinations.

 

Crowned by the World Heritage site that is the stunning Alhambra Palace, and just one hour away from beautiful beaches and skiing of the Sierra Nevada, Granada is becoming increasingly popular among the international community. The city itself is peppered with wonderful internal courtyards and unique mixture of Romanesque and Arab architecture. The locals enjoy a good standard of living thanks to the exquisite and healthy local cuisine, marvellous, sunny climate and the plethora of cultural and leisure options on offer here.

 

Landlocked Granada is just an hour’s drive inland from the Costa de Almería, with easy access to miles of sandy beaches, ideal for days spent in the water, having picnics and enjoying other summer outdoor activities for kids. There is also a large lake situated in the west of Granada Province where families can enjoy a swim, go camping, and hiking in the Sierras de Tejeda natural park. There are also popular water parks in Almuñécar and Cenes de la Vega.

 

The Costa de Almeria comprises of 217 kilometres of coastline which runs from Murcia in the North to the province of Granada in the South. Among the tourist destinations on the Costa de Almeria are Vera, Mojácar, Roquetas de Mar and Almerimar. These areas are becoming more and more popular amongst international families, who are looking for a quieter coastal life than their neighbours on the Costa del Sol.
