The  heliport in Motril is the second private heliport authorized by AESA in Andalusia. It is located in a privileged environment, surrounded by mountains to the north (Sierra Nevada and Sierra de Lujar) and the Mediterranean Sea to the South. In fact, it is located by the water, so that take offs and landings are always done over the sea, enjoying spectacular views of the snowy peaks of Sierra Nevada, what makes it unique.
