Playa Calahonda

The last beach on the Costa Tropical before it turns into the Costa Almeria, Playa Calahonda lies south of Granada around a small village of the same name that manages to maintain an authentic regional air and lacks the large hotel developments of elsewhere on the Andalusian coast.

Protected by a headland on its eastern side, and with cliffs to its rear, the beach is a sheltered one, with an ambience of safety to match. Boasting 320 days of sunshine a year, this long stretch of sand rarely feels overcrowded, managing to maintain its reputation as a pleasant place to enjoy Andalusia’s climate at any time of year.

These deep, clean waters are home to a myriad of different species of marine life, making Playa Calahonda an increasingly popular destination with the scuba diving fraternity as well as the local fishermen who leave their boats moored just off the beach.

Families will appreciate that Playa Calahonda is well-equipped, with showers, sunbeds and umbrellas for rent, and lifeguards on duty throughout the summer months
