We could spend days giving reasons to visit Andalusia. And it is that this community in the south of Spain is not only steeped in history, but it also offers a wonderful coast, extraordinary gastronomy, charming towns, surprising natural landscapes and, of course, friendly and joyful people.
It does not matter which province of Andalusia you visit. In any of them you will discover incredible corners! Today, for example, we want to show you some of the towns coastal most beautiful in the entire region. Would you like to join us? You will not regret!
We begin our tour of the most beautiful coastal towns of Andalusia in Almería. Here we can find such magical places as Mojácar, a town located on a hill in the foothills of Sierra Cabrera. It offers 17 kilometers of coastline, with beautiful beaches and coves protected; great natural wealth; and an architecture that seems from another era and culture.
We continue in Almería to talk to you about Níjar, one of the largest municipalities in Spain (it stretches from Sierra Alhamilla to Cabo de Gata). The town forms a highly attractive urban complex, although the most important part of the place is in the Cabo de Gata-Níjar Natural Park, which hides landscapes unique: mountains of volcanic origin, a coastal strip of beaches, salt flats and dunes; corners of great anthropological value ...
From Almería we moved to Granada to discover Salobreña, a jewel of the Costa Tropical. Perched on an imposing rock, it still preserves the structure medieval from its old town. The place has a privileged tropical climate, making it possible to enjoy its beaches for much of the year. In addition, the climate is conducive to growing species such as tropical fruits or sugar cane.
The municipality of Nerja could not miss on this list, which has become one of the most important centers tourist of the Costa del Sol thanks to its many elements of interest: a great scenic beauty (mountains, sea, great beaches, fertile orchards ...); the Caves of Nerja, the cliffs of Maro, the Balcony of Europe ... Discover more about this place in our article "Nerja, a town in Malaga with a lot to offer".
From Malaga we also want to highlight Estepona, which, although located on the first line of the coast, has most of its territory within the Sierra Bermeja complex. Thanks to its magnificent beaches and the abundance of services and sun and beach facilities, it has become one of the main tourist destinations in Andalusia.
Conil de la Frontera
In the southwest of the province of Cádiz, on the coast, we find Conil de la Frontera, a coastal area of great wealth fishery and natural that offers numerous places of interest and beauty, such as, for example, its extensive white sand beaches. We also want to highlight its cliffs and pine forests.
As it could not be otherwise, in Cádiz we must also highlight Tarifa, which is not only open to both seas, but has been open to all civilizations since centuries. Its municipal area has 38 kilometers of beaches, most of them with fine and shallow sands. The one in Los Lances, which has been declared a Natural Area, and the one in Bologna, which houses the ruins of Baelo Claudia, stand out.
Palos de la Frontera
Finally, we want to talk about Palos de la Frontera, which was the cradle of the discovery of America. And it is that from its port the three famous ones left caravels that managed to reach the American lands. Here you can find numerous interesting buildings, such as the La Rábida Monastery, the Castle, the parish of San Jorge, the Casa de los Pinzón or the Fontanilla, a curious Mudejar fountain.
