The Costa Tropical: a subtropical micro-climate
The Costa Tropical enjoys a subtropical micro-climate with more than 325 days a year of sunshine and a pleasant, annual daytime temperature of 20 degrees on average. The Sierra Nevada mountains protect the Costa Tropical from the extremes of summer heat and winter cold that the inland cities, such as Granada, experience. The Costa Tropical has the warmest winter temperature on mainland Europe. It is even warmer here than on the Costa del Sol. In winter, there are daily highs of 18° and nightly lows around 10°.
Thanks to the heated pools of nowadays villas, you can swim even in winter. It is also possible to ski from December through April. You can enjoy the slopes in the morning and sunbathe on the beach in the afternoon. Our clients and previous guests of our vacation homes have been surprised that even in January it can be necessary to use sunscreen.
