Welcome to this website, which must be to the benefit of all who love our home in PLAYA TROPICAL.
We are near Almuñécar, which lies on the part of the coast between Malaga and Almeria, where the towering mountain range, Sierra Nevada, with the highest point, Mulhacén, protects the coastal area from the cold north, resulting in a warmer climate in the plains and mountain valleys along an approx. 60 km of coastline between Herradura (5 km west of Almunecar) and La Rabita (roughly midway between Almunecar and Almeria).
In this area, there may be grown particular types of vegetables and other vegetation, which requires a tropical like climate - eg. you will find here many and vast sugar cane, avocados and chirimoya plantations.
In the mentioned relatively small area of the Costa del Sol, Costa Tropical, the climate is in fact tropical , so "Playa Tropical" bears not its name wrongly!
