Free City Guide and Best Daytrips from Granada in southern Spain

Daytrips

Granada is situated in one of the most beautiful and fertile parts of Andalucía, so get your walking shoes and your camera and hit the trails to really see all the region has to offer. You’ll soon understand why the land has been so sought-after to its long list of past settlers.


Alpujarra

La Alpujarra is a spectacularly beautiful region within the Sierra Nevada National Park. The region’s natural beauty and that of its villages attract walkers, hikers, and trekkers from all over the world, even in winter.

Come with us on our famous hike through the Alpujarras.

Cahorros de Monachil

Full of wildlife, rivers, valleys, caves and beautiful views, there are endless routes to explore and discover. For nature lovers, hikers and climbers – this is a perfect destination.

 

Mountain Guejar Sierra

During summer, Oasis staff will take you to explore this beautiful location just a short bus ride outside of Granada. Take a swim in the river, laze about in the sun, and enjoy a picnic. A great way to relax and renew after the hardships of a long travel…or a long night.

La Herradura Beach

The beautiful bay of La Herradura is the envy of Almuñecar and one of the prettiest bays along the south coast of Spain. The 2km of sand beach is one of the principal attractions in the area. Unlike almost anywhere along the southern coast, development has been restricted in height and you can still enjoy the contours of the natural setting.

 

Nerja Beach

16km of beaches with powdery sand and sparkling clear water. All major water sports are available including water skiing, scuba diving, and sailing. However the most spectacular historic monument is the Nerja caves. Located 3km from the centre of town is an archaeological cave containing the world’s widest column.

The Sierra Nevada Mountains

Sierra Nevada is Europe’s most southern ski resort. The resort is located 32km from the centre of Granada and is only a 50-minute drive. The highest summit of the Sierra Nevada range is Mulhacen at 3,481 metres, the highest ski lift goes to just below Veleta which is at 3,398 metres. Andalucia has a very high proportion of sunny days even in the winter and usually it is possible to ski with beautiful blue skies and warm temperatures.
