Motril, Spain Cruises

The town and municipality of Motril is situated on the Mediterranean coast in the Spanish province of Granada. The town lies near to the impressive Guadalfeo River in the foothills of the Sierra Lujar Mountains. Motril is perhaps most well known for its production of sugar cane, which has been the basis of the region's economy for many years. Nowadays, it is the region's legacy and many successful sugar cane plantations and facilities are located across the Motril. From a tourist's point of view, however, the town is an ideal cruise destination. With a splendidly warm Mediterranean climate and a plethora of sandy beaches stretching along the pristine coastline, Motril is one of southern Spain's most beautiful but underappreciated holiday destinations.

Sightseeing in Motril

Beaches

Motril offers a variety of beaches that stretch for 20km from Salobreña to Castell de Ferro, allowing tourists an incredible choice of small secluded coves and spacious sandy shoreline on which to relax. The region's most popular beaches include Poniente, Granada, Torrenueva, Joya, Carchuna and Calahonda Beach, each with its only unique attractions, such as beach-side restaurants, cafes and water sports equipment for hire.

Monuments

The old town of Motril is littered with historic structures and intriguing monuments, which stand as a testament to the region's fascinating history as a bustling Mediterranean port. One of the most significant civil buildings in the area is the Motril Town Hall, which dates back to 1631 and was constructed by master builder Isidro de la Chica. Nearby, the imposing castle of Carchuna is open to visitors interested in the town's long and diverse history. Built in 1777, on the orders of Charles III, the castle was designed to protect the coastline against attacks from pirates. Also, erected at around the same time to defend the region against further pirate attacks is the Farillo of Calahonda, a historic lookout tower. Motrils long and fascinating heritage is reflected in the wide range of wonderful monuments located across the centre of town and beyond.

Parks

The region is also home to several marvellous parks and areas of natural beauty, such as the Gardens of Cases de los Bates. This magnificent park incorporates several smaller gardens, covering around 20,000 square metres, linked together by steps and footpaths. These individual gardens contain a splendid mix of stunning architecture, beautiful flora and fauna as well as spectacular views out over the coastline. Other parks and gardens in the area include the Charca de Suarez and the Pueblos de America Park.

Shopping in Motril

Despite the absence of large shopping centres in the Motril, the town centre is packed with small, independently run stores, selling a wide range of authentic local gifts and souvenirs as well as practical general amenities.

Eating out in Motril

The centre of Motril is home to an assortment of excellent restaurants, cafes and bars, serving a variety of tempting dishes, from traditional Spanish meals such as tapas and paella to an array of delicious international cuisine, so everyone will find something on the menus to suit their tastes.
