Car Hire Motril

Motril Guide

Motril is all about the beach and there are several of them including one where you can completely strip off. The best one for families is the Playa Granada with kilometres of fine golden sand and a gently sloping beach. Whilst in Motril, try the local rum, a hangover from the days when sugar cane was grown here, the drink is still made in the city and is popular today.


Motril Directions

Granada Airport is mainly a domestic airport serving flights from Madrid although it has a flight from Paris Orly Airport. Travellers from the UK can choose to change at Orly or Madrid before continuing their journey, saving them the extra 25 minutes journey from Malaga Airport. Once in Granada they can hire a car and make the simple journey down the A44 or E902 to Motril.

Motril Info

Motril is found on the coastline of the province of Granada but unlike its neighbours, Almunecar and Salobrena is better known for things other than the beach. Motril has an extensive agricultural industry growing beans, tomatoes and cucumbers and from the air seems almost entirely covered in glasshouses. At one time sugar cane was grown and processed locally but after a time span of nearly three centuries, it was discontinued less than ten years ago. Motril still has its beaches including a nudist beach but the nicest is called Playa Granada.
