En los alrededores de Granada podéis disfrutar de una gran variedad de paisajes sin apenas emplear más de una hora de viaje en coche o bus:

La Costa Tropical con una media de temperatura anual de 20ºC y unos 320 días de sol al año (a 65 Km), está moteada de torres y fortalezas vigías que atestiguan su pasado, de huertas donde crecen frutos –aguacates, mangos, chirimoyas, bananas y guayabas– y de pueblos blancos que se asoman cada mañana a un mar tranquilo y azul.
Ésta es una costa accidentada, de duros acantilados, profundos valles y calas de aguas cristalinas y algunas de las mejores playas de Andalucía. (La Rijana, Calahonda, La Guardia, La Herradura, Acantilados de Maro) https://www.nationalgeographic.com.es/viajes/grandes-reportajes/las-mejores-playas-andalucia_11726/3

Sierra Nevada, techo de la península ibérica con la estación de ski más meridional de Europa, abierta desde diciembre a abril y con más de 50 Km de pistas esquiables (a 40 Km).

Todo ello con una estupenda temperatura primaveral de 20ºC durante el mes de agosto.

La Alpujarra, es un valle de 70 km de longitud situado a los pies de Sierra Nevada, salpicado de pueblos blancos al estilo bereber que están conectados entre sí por rutas y senderos.
