We’ve hand picked the most popular Campsites on the Costa Tropical in the areas of Motril, Almuñécar, Carchuna, Polopos, Granada… to help you with your search. Still not sure? Let us help your narrow down your search to help you find what you’re looking for…

Costa Tropical Campsite locations

So you’ve decided that the Costa Tropical is the place where you want to start looking for a Campsite or Residential style Caravan Park but you’re not sure which area. The Costa Tropical (The ‘Tropical Coast‘ also known as Costa Grenadina) in the province of Granada in Andalusia is a picturesque location, full of stunning beaches and a micro climate that gives the characteristics of a sub tropical environment. Situated just east of Nerja on the Costa del Sol and south of Almeria, this is a great location for exploring the neighbouring Costa resorts.


A favourite place for those seeking a less commercialised resort, Almuñécar is ‘typically Spanish’ in nature and is a popular choice for those craving the authentic lifestyle that comes along with it. That said, this is a place where you’ll still find plenty of shops, bars and restaurants alongside the usual tourist facilities. Furthermore, this resort was founded by the Phoenicians in the 8th century B. C so there’s plenty of historical landmarks to visit such as the Castle of San Miguel and the city of Granada around 80km away.

An area well known for it’s stunning beaches, Carchuna much like the other resorts on the Costa Tropical is laid back and exemplifies the characteristics of a traditionally Spanish holiday destination. An area once dependent on neighbouring Motril, Carchuna now boasts it’s own tourist attractions and is a popular area for kite surfing and history buffs who visit the Castillo de Carchuna.

The second largest town in the province of Granada and the largest town on the Costa Tropical, Motril has all of the facilities you could need. Shop in one of the many out of town hypermarkets, marvel at the historic monument of the The Palma House, enjoy a day at the Rum Montero Bodega (Wine Cellar) or just sit back, relax and unwind on the Playa Granada beach (1 of 7 beaches in Motril). Furtermore, Motrils proximity to the Sierra Nevada mountain range and the other resorts of Almuñécar, la Herradura, Nerja & Salobreña makes it a popular base for exploring.

Sitting just east of the resorts of Motril and Almuñécar, Polopos village sits high in the mountainside overlooking the Mediterranean sea. That said, Polopos is not just the name of a village but also the name of the municipality – encompassing several towns such as Castillo de Baños and La Mamola which are located right on the coast. With this in mind, this area (although quite spread out) offers the options of both mountain and sea and proves a popular option for sunbathers and explorers alike.

Which area of the Costa Tropical has the best Campsites?

Our favourite area for the best Campsites on the Costa Tropical (caravan parks) is Almuñecar. Why, we hear you ask? Because this area provides the perfect balance of a resort which isn’t overly commercialised, is still typically Andalusian and you’re not too far from the neighbouring Costa del Sol for those day trips out shopping and dining.

What to look for when searching for Costa Tropical Campsites:

Annual site fee costs on the Costa Tropical

Site fees on the Costa Tropical range from 3,000€ to 5,000€ annually. However, as you’ll find only campsites or ‘residential style campsites’ (caravan parks), expect to pay in weekly or monthly installments and expect the daily rates to be higher during the summer season.

Annual running costs

Consider the following as annual running costs on a campsite on the Costa Tropical: Site fees, gas (bottle), electricity (metered) & Caravan insurance. Water is generally included with the site fees on most campsites in Spain.


Much like the rest of Spain facilities differ by each campsite on the Costa Tropical but expect to find at least 1 swimming pool and a restaurant / bar area. Comparatively, as you’ll find some of the Costa Tropical Campsites located on or by the beach expect to find additional facilities involving water sports or equipment hire for water sports.

Distance to the nearest Costa Tropical town or resort

This should be the most important factor when searching for your a Campsite on the Costa Tropical. Although this is quite a small region, you’ll have an area in mind where you want to be so focus your search primarily in that location. And, once you’ve found a campsite, calculate the distance to your favourite Costa Tropical resort or town using Googlemaps or similar map tool.
