Tour from Malaga
Any day you choose, you can enjoy a fantastic and absolutely affordable trip and return the same day at night, after having enjoyed a large amount of possibilities in Andalusia. Malaga is an excellent base from where to make fantastic tours through Andalusia. We proceed to analyze some of the most popular tours that can be done in just one day if you wish, or more if you just want to know them thoroughly.
My last experience and of which I keep a more recent memory, was to go to Granada by the inland road from Malaga and then back along the Costa del Sol; if you want to know the most beautiful views of Malaga and Andalusia, although I cannot say that they are the best, since I have not visited all that I'd like to visit, they are highly recommended.
Simply driving along the motorway towards Granada presents us with views of the cemetery of Casabermeja with historical value or invites us to the numerous inns where you can taste delicious dishes from the area. Driving
along the area of "RIO FRIO", a place famous for its trout, there is an inn where you can savor them next the roadside.
What can we find in Granada?
Our arrival is announced by a detour which takes us into the city of Granada; a bit confusing can be the underground works that are currently underway in 2010. If you plan to get into the city to try the tapas, one of
the things that Granada is famous for, we recommend parking in the many car parks nearby.
A walk and a meal at any of the numerous bars in Granada will quench our appetite if we arrived at lunchtime as was my case. Later, we wash it down with a little stroll, although what I did was to take the car again to get to the Alhambra, which I wanted to visit. Although it might seem complicated, all you have to do is go back to the highway and go towards Sierra Nevada; the street signs indicate well the direction to take to get to the Alhambra, you can´t get lost and it has very easy access.
The views from the Alhambra over Granada are spectacular and you will be sorry of not having brought a camera. In my case I can´t give any opinion of the Alhambra itself, as the guard at the door told us that we must draw tickets over the Internet in advance. Take it into account if you plan to visit this world heritage site.
To the Costa del Sol from Granada
When returning, I decided to go through Almuñecar and thus enjoy the coastal views and no doubt it was a great choice, as I discovered the Parque Natural Sierras de Tejeda, Alhama and Almijara, a mountain pass in at a detour of the motorway to Motril.
Continuing our way, we finally get to Almuñecar, where we stop for a while and have a drink, enjoy an afternoon at the beach or take stroll to stretch the legs.
Heading back to Malaga
On our way back to Malaga we drive through famous landmarks such as Nerja
and its Aguila aqueduct, built in the mid-nineteenth century, or the Caves
Without doubt it is a highly recommended trip and I would not mind repeating it. To enjoy so many things in just one day was only possible by going in car... and will raise your appetite to know more of Andalusia, and even for the people of Malaga who would like to do this route.
If you do not have a vehicle you can always opt for car hire Malaga, with all the guarantees to make your trip as pleasant as possible.
