Motril Introduction

Motril lies in Andalucía on the Costa Tropical and has a transfer time from Malaga airport of ninety minutes. It is a commercial town with a busy port as well as a fish quay and a yachting marina. Although the town is not well known as a coastal resort, it does have two beaches, both of which are sandy. There is also a golf course. Motril is a good base from which to explore Andalucía’s coast and the magnificent Nevada mountain range is within easy travelling distance. There are also ferry trips to Morocco.

It is a bustling town with a population of fifty thousand and there is much to keep holidaymakers entertained. The town has a good commercial centre with excellent restaurants and its nightlife is lively.

When To Go To Motril

Motril has an extended holiday season with long hot summers and mild winters. Although the most popular time to visit is during the summer months it is also a good place to go to escape from the damp and dreary British winter.

Motril - The Place

Motril lies between Almeria and Malaga on the aptly named Costa Tropical. Although Motril’s tourist industry makes only a small contribution to the economy of this thriving commercial centre, it is a lively place with a vibrant nightlife. There is a range of accommodation catering for most budgets and the shopping facilities are good and include out-of-town hypermarkets and retail complexes.

There are two main beaches as well as rocky coves and inlets which attract snorkelers and scuba divers. The beaches, Playa Granada and Playa Poniente, are sandy and the latter provides a variety of water sports.

To the west, lying in an area of lush vegetation, is a nine hole golf course. The facilities include a putting green and driving range. Remember to bring your handicap certificate as this is sometimes a course requirement. Other recreational facilities include mountain biking, rock climbing, rafting and fishing. There are also many excursions including ferry crossings to Morocco and coach trips into the mountain villages. Granada, only forty minute by road, is well worth a visit. While there, be sure to see the Alhambra Palace and the Generalife Gardens.

Motril is close enough to the mountains for holidaymakers to ski in the morning and take a dip in the sea in the afternoon.

A Motril holiday offers a guarantee of good weather, excellent accommodation, fine cuisine and a diverse range of recreational activities.

Motril Nightlife

Motril nightlife has something for everyone with lively bars and discos popular with the young. There are regular concerts and live shows in the town including classical and jazz concerts. There is also an emphasis on traditional music and dance. As dinner is eaten late, most venues don’t begin to buzz until after ten at night. There are also many fine restaurants where you can enjoy a peaceful meal in the company of friends.

Motril Shopping

Motril has a good number of supermarkets and hypermarkets for holiday essentials as well as many gift and souvenir shops. A short ferry trip to Morocco offers an excellent days shopping in the bazaars and markets.

Motril Eating

Motril has a wide variety of restaurants catering for all tastes and budgets. Menus include traditional local dishes such as paella, tortillas, tapas and chorizo, as well as a choice of international cuisine. A good way to try Spanish food is to order a plate of tapas which consists of a medley of bite-sized dishes. Tapas are also ideal for filling the sometimes long gap between lunch and dinner, which is served later in Spain than at home.

Children are always made very welcome in Spanish restaurants and their tastes and portion sizes are usually accommodated.

Spanish wines are pleasant and inexpensive.
