If you are looking for some exotic locations to spend your vacation peacefully, then Granada is a great option. There are several sightseeing spots that will make your holidays memorable and enjoyable.


Granada has some very great beaches with lots of bays, which will give you some romantic moments. The beaches are neat and you could relax yourself looking over the range of mountains that is in the Sierra Nevada. Most of the year, the peaks of this mountain are covered with snow and are a magnificent sight. These snow capped mountain ranges are a great place to try out skiing. Another advantage is that you could also swim along with the skiing.

Though there are many beaches, one of the prominent ones is the Salobrena. It has a big castle located on a rock, which when seen from a distance, looks like it is floating. Also, never miss out to see the village that is dedicated for romance located on the Almunecar beach. There is also a fishing village called La Herradura, which also has exotic beaches. The Arabian fortress located on the Castell de ferro is yet another beach worth paying a visit.


The bathing resort at Alhama provides a picturesque view of the Sierra Nevada. Besides water baths, there are also very exciting waterfalls nearby. Loja, which is coming within the boundaries of Granada, has some age old monuments and fortress which may leave you mesmerized.
